Affect-aware Technologies: The Dawn of a New Age for CALL?

2017 saw the integration of facial recognition in many popular devices and an ever-increasing number of free and paid apps involving emotion-detection.  Are these simply fancy, entertaining features and apps or will this technology prove to be the key component of “intelligent” apps in computer-assisted language learning?
This webinar is for educators, researchers, developers and administrators interested in:

  1. Learning how facial recognition is being used to learn more about a student’s attention, engagement and sentiment at particular moments in order to regulate and adjust the pace or content of learning materials.
  2. Seeing illustrations of a number of available tools and apps
  3. Hearing a brief review of relevant research and educators’ previous experiences to enable a more informed and analytical approach to the selection and use of emotion-detection technologies.

Our discussion will allow us to reflect together upon some of the challenges and issues the use of such technology invites.
