dc.description.abstractIt is estimated that by 2020 there will be over 50 billion connected devices. This will go beyond cellphones and computers, to include objects such as cars, household appliances, and – as the technology improves – clothes, utensils and all manner of everyday items. What does this have to do with language learning? As with computers and mobile technologies, the implications and uses of these developments for educators and learners may not be obvious, but they are likely to be significant. In this talk I will describe the Internet of Things from a pedagogical point of view, give some examples of emerging implementations and research, and propose three areas of potential impact on our field clustered around affordances relating to mobility, augmentation and ubiquity. I will conclude by identifying possible benefits and drawbacks for teachers and learners, in particular for supporting learning beyond the classroom and its impact on the development of learner autonomy.en_NZ
