Time  Speakers Title  Summary Materials 
  Vi Ly, Vancouver Island University, Viet Nam  Cloud Computing in School: Teachers’ Feelings of Comfort Integrating Google Suite for Education  Cloud-computing is believed as a significant type of education technology which powerfully enhances collaboration in learning and teaching. In this presentation, I will share my research about how the secondary public-school teachers confront the mass integration of cloud computing services (Google Suite for Education in particular) in school settings.   
  Marta Halaczkiewicz, Utah State University, USA  Domesticating Pokémon: A Study of One Classroom Application of Using Mobile Video Games with English Language Learners  This study explored how playing a video game, Pokémon Go, can help motivate ESL students to engage in online writing spaces. I present results from a study conducted in an academic ESL course and offer suggestions for practical application of games in language classroom instruction.   
  Sharin Jacob, University of California, Irvine, USA  Examining the implementation of a computational thinking curriculum for dual language learners  Computational thinking (CT) is an essential skill for full participation in today’s society. Yet there has been little discussion about the teaching of CT to language learners. In this talk, I explore how an elementary CT curriculum supports multilingual students’ development of CT, literacy, and positive attitudes towards computer science.
