Creating a Virtual Interview: Using technology to improve language and interview skills
Wednesday, March 9 6:30 PM-8:00 PM Location: Hermitage C
Abstract: Our research outlines the development of a software-based interactive visual/audio recording system which incorporates facial recognition and audio mapping technology. This system will increase student speaking practice, teacher-student time and offer opportunities for self-learning. The ultimate goal is to help Japanese students improve their communicative ability/competency in English and assist them in improving their performance on English oral interview-type assessment tests. The purpose of this research is not to replace the face to face talk that is so important for both education and life, rather it is to help students practice and enhance their communicative skills for that future job interview or speaking test that determines their academic future.
