研究室大事記

時間飛逝,一同來看看我們做了哪些事

Our Achievements
2014年一開始,我們即籌辦了「3D多人互動虛擬情境之教育應用國際工作坊」,邀請了幾位專家學者一同與我們分享使用各種教育工具的經驗,與未來展望,其中包含:日本Hakusan國際學校的校長─Mark Elwell,以及澳洲蒙納許大學的教師─Scott Grant
且於一月參加「2014年邁向頂尖大學成果展」,將我們的計畫簡短介紹給各委員。接著,我們也將研究室的研究成果呈現給社會大眾,在邁向頂尖大學宋執行長所主持的記者會中,簡短介紹了我們的研究成果。

從一月至六月,我們順利與萬福國小合作完成一項實驗,一共近三百位學生參與,此實驗主要著重於利用虛擬環境進行語言學習。研究結果將於近期發表於國際期刊。

隨著夏季的到來,我們開始奔波於各研討會。五月底,我們於中國上海舉行的「全球華人計算機教育應用大會」中,發表了一篇論文─Apply Context-aware Technology in Mandarin Chinese Learning;七月份,我們於希臘舉行的「第十四屆進階學習技術國際研討會」中,發表一篇論文─Learning, engagement and virtual worlds. Virtual worlds pedagogy and learning design;八月份,我們於愛沙尼亞舉行的「第十三屆網路學習國際研討會」中,發表一篇論文─Bridging in-and-out class learning: Mobile seamless Mandarin learning。

但不論我們再怎麼奔波,臺北的工作從來不曾停擺。我們於臺灣師範大學籌備並推出了我們首次登場的線上磨課師課程─ 「線上華語文教學實務」。同時,我們也完成了於萬福國小進行實驗的研究結果分析,並會盡快撰寫並發表。

到了下學期,我們則忙於籌備與陳年興教授古亭國小合作的研究實驗:Motion Study,終於,在十月底,我們開始執行此項實驗,共一百三十位以上的國小學童參與該實驗,另外,西門國小的其中一個班級亦加入了我們的研究。

今年秋季,我們研究室有位新成員的加入─蕭有廷博士,將於國立中央大學的資訊工程學系取得博士,將大大協助我們研究室Second Life與OpenSim計畫的開發。

2014年的尾聲,我們剛參加了「2014年跨國中心計畫科技部訪視成果展」,將我們的成果簡要地呈現給六位委員。當然,我們有豐碩的成果皆可呈現給大家,但這些可永遠不及幕後的工作量呢!
Our Achievements
2013 was a year full of activities and traveling! We started the year organizing an activity for the Ministry of Education, which we entitled “薪火相傳研習會. About 70 professors from all over Taiwan were invited to attend this special activity, where senior professors shared their knowledge with juniors. Talks, workshops, discussions, etc. A two-day full agenda that left us exhausted, but with a great feeling and new knowledge.
Our director, Dr. Lan, was invited as visitor professor at Penn State, where she spent 3 months doing intensive research with her colleague Dr. Li Ping.

In September we added a new member, Ms. Yi-Ning Huang, who is responsible for the international affairs related to the Chinese as a Second Language for our Lab. In October Ms. Yi-Chun Tsai joined us to help designing Second life teaching plans and to continue with the construction of the NTNU Language Island. At the end of 2013 we said bye to our colleague Ms. Wang, who continued her journey chasing new goals. To continue with her job, Ms. Chia-Ling Kao joined us in December, and has been carrying out experiment planning and implementation.

New members joined the TELL Lab, including a new Post-Doctoral researcher, Dr. Tsun-Ju Lin, who graduated from Washington State University, WA, USA. Other two members joined, Carlos Sánchez-Martín, former manager of the Modern Languages Technology Center at Rochester Institute of Technology, NY, USA, and Szu-Yun Wang, an MA graduate from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, WI, USA. Almost right after Dr. Lin joined us, Dr. Liu continued her journey as a newly hired professor at the Department of Applied English, at KaiNan University.
Do you know of a better way to end up 2012 than organizing an International workshop on learning in 3D virtual realities? Second Life and other virtual worlds used for education purposes were discussed and after a lot of work,

Before 2012 ... we didn't have a Website, so there is no narrative for what we did... but we certainly had lots of activities, attended many conferences, published many papers... and had lots of fun!
