Selected fourth-year students under the Bachelor of Secondary Education major in English program from the College of Education- Sta. Mesa Campus presented different research at the 4th International Conference on Applied Linguistics and Language Education held on October 19–21, 2023 at the De La Salle University, Manila.
Elirie A. Abalin, through her study titled “Iskotutorial: Development of an Educational Website Using Wordpress,” explored the creation and utilization of an educational platform using Wordpress. Her research was about the development of a website to enhance learning experiences for students.
Meanwhile, Kenneth Del Rosario’s study, “Improving English Vocabulary of First year BSED students through Quizlet,” focused on the integration of a digital learning tool—Quizlet in a classroom setup to enhance the vocabulary acquisition of freshmen students.
The last research, “Translanguaging in Action: Practice, Benefits, and Challenges,” by Reynaline De Guzman delved into the application, advantages, and problems associated with translanguaging, emphasizing its role in language teaching and learning.
ICALLE 2023 led the discussions on applied linguistics and language education, bringing together applied linguists, language educators across levels, and graduate and undergraduate students, who teach or are involved in the teaching of English or any other first or second language.
Intended as a triennial conference, ICALLE aims to sustain this exchange of ideas so that more research-based instructional practices could be explored and developed.
Two of the conference activities were Competitions and Awards for 3-Minute Thesis (3MT), Pitch, ICALLE OPAs (Outstanding Paper Award), and Round Table Discussion.
The Round Table Discussion were divided into two (2) categories 1) AI in English Language Teaching and Language Research which featured the current debate on Artificial Intelligence (AI) in ELT and Language Research where panelists shared the benefits, threats, issues, challenges, and how teachers and students and scholars should deal with them and 2) English Language Education in the Philippines: Current Situations and Future Directions where the chairpersons of different English departments in the NCR were invited to share the status of applied linguistics and language education in their own universities.
The three-day conference also invited speakers, panelists, mentees, and plenary speakers such as, Prof. Nicola Galloway from the University of Glasgow of United Kingdom, Prof. Jong-Bok Kim from Kyung Hee University of South Korea, Prof. Rochelle Lucas from De La Salle University of Philippines, Prof. Andrew Moody from the University of Macau of Macau SAR, and lastly, Prof Eric Friginal from Hong Kong Polytechnic University of Hong Kong SAR.
Following the success of past ICALLE conferences, ICALLE 2023 brings similar questions to the fore by facilitating a dynamic discussion of the application of research in the many branches of linguistics to language education. It strengthens the language educator the interface between skill in the method and practice of language teaching and information about theoretical and methodological developments and issues concerning how languages such as English are learned and taught.
The ICALLE served as a platform for these Iskolars to showcase their academic and technological skills, innovation, and potential contributions to the field of language and linguistics.
