“The Foreign Language Learner in the Computer”
These remarks will focus on two ways in which the skills developed in foreign language learning engage with cultures built upon digital environments and computational practices. First, what I will call post-grammatical skills fostered by language learning suggest new directions for developing technology to enhance pedagogy (and beyond). Second, these skills open doors for confronting and critiquing existing cultural technologies and provide the foundation for an empowered participation in multidisciplinary environments. Examples will draw from Digital Humanities research and current bibliography on digital disruption outside academia, but the emphasis will be on the interdisciplinary curricular possibilities offered by this reframing of the necessary, dynamic intercultural work that we do as teachers of languages.
