Filling the gap between research and practice in EdTech
This talk identifies a consistent gap between research and practice in EdTech and explores how specific research in linguistics has a strong potential for being applied in educational practice. We will look at how applied linguistics research could be used to create technology that facilitates students understanding of what elements compose a sentence (syntax) and how a group of words are attached to the same vocabulary list (lexicon).
