Konoeda presented at Princeton and in Japan

Keiko Konoeda, a doctoral student in the language, literacy and culture concentration, presented at the Princeton Japanese Pedagogy Forum in Princeton, New Jersey, in May.  Her presentation, “‘Taiwa’ to shite no maruchimedia seisaku (Multimedia production as ‘dialogue’)”, offered a Bakhtinian analysis of two college students' digital video production conducted as a part of a classroom research project in a Japanese language classroom. Based on the analysis, Konoeda proposed the reconceptualization of multimedia production projects in the classroom as "dialogue" of voices.
 
Konoeda also presented “Multimodal storytelling as multiliterate practice: Critical analysis of digital storytelling in world language classroom,” at the International Society for Language Studies (ISLS) conference in Akita, Japan, in June.
