E-Factor: English Education, Empowerment and Emotivation observes theories, phenomena and procedures from authentic perspectives. It aims to propose theoretical validations, augmentations and innovations in applied and technology-based areas of English language learning through the observation of how English-connected education develops in the contemporary world in which teachers and learners are embedded. It allows readers to become more sensitive to today’s approaches to language teaching/learning. It also proposes possible scenarios aimed at achieving field-related, updated and integrated levels of awareness which can drive the current generation of learners towards long-lasting success in second language acquisition. National and international contributors’ diverse disciplines, expertise, internationalism and breadth of scientific rigour emanate throughout the volume. Readers will become acquainted with the voices and the findings of scholars who originate from and engage in research in a variety of European, African, Asian and Middle Eastern contexts. With foreseeable differences and points of convergence, the kaleidoscopic scenario they generate permits the focus on aspects of English education and research, e-learning, empowerment, emotivation, and teacher-training from various points of view and diverse socio-cultural and pedagogic perspectives. The volume fosters the building of a wider vision than the one that would be gathered by being confined in one’s own country thus projecting an accurate scenario of the contemporary worldwide state of the art. The conference presentations, which frame this volume, were video-taped and readers can access them by linking to the specifically-designed E-Factor TV channel. The volume will be of interest to scholars, researchers, doctoral students, teachers, teacher-trainers and language students who will gain insight into the multifaceted reality of learning, teaching, analysing and training in/through a living language such as English in today’s globalised and digitalised world.

Abstract

E-Factor: English Education, Empowerment and Emotivation observes theories, phenomena and procedures from authentic perspectives. It aims to propose theoretical validations, augmentations and innovations in applied and technology-based areas of English language learning through the observation of how English-connected education develops in the contemporary world in which teachers and learners are embedded. It allows readers to become more sensitive to today’s approaches to language teaching/learning. It also proposes possible scenarios aimed at achieving field-related, updated and integrated levels of awareness which can drive the current generation of learners towards long-lasting success in second language acquisition. National and international contributors’ diverse disciplines, expertise, internationalism and breadth of scientific rigour emanate throughout the volume. Readers will become acquainted with the voices and the findings of scholars who originate from and engage in research in a variety of European, African, Asian and Middle Eastern contexts. With foreseeable differences and points of convergence, the kaleidoscopic scenario they generate permits the focus on aspects of English education and research, e-learning, empowerment, emotivation, and teacher-training from various points of view and diverse socio-cultural and pedagogic perspectives. The volume fosters the building of a wider vision than the one that would be gathered by being confined in one’s own country thus projecting an accurate scenario of the contemporary worldwide state of the art. The conference presentations, which frame this volume, were video-taped and readers can access them by linking to the specifically-designed E-Factor TV channel. The volume will be of interest to scholars, researchers, doctoral students, teachers, teacher-trainers and language students who will gain insight into the multifaceted reality of learning, teaching, analysing and training in/through a living language such as English in today’s globalised and digitalised world.
