One of the powerful impacts that digital technology had on our communication would be global connection. We access and connect to digital world through a variety of languages and forms. This power is similar to that of gravity or power of magnet drawing our texts and voices from around the world. Will future technology truly connect us into one world? How will different languages affect this process?
Hi, my name is Yuki and I currently live in a city next to Tokyo, Japan. I moved back to Japan from Vancouver last year. This is my fifth ETEC course. I worked in the television industry in Tokyo for over ten years while raising two children. After I came back from Canada, I have been teaching English in the private educational company, and I have just gotten the opportunity to work at the local college as an assistant for the directors. I am interested in technology-supported curriculum design for foreign language learners. In this program, I wish to understand how technology and digital communication impact the foreign language learners’ perspective on reading and writing.
