Steve Thorne 2010

Social media, persistent virtualities, and plurilingual competence:
An agenda for research and praxis

Presented at the LARC 2010 Social Media Workshop by Steven L. Thorne, Portland State University and University of Groningen

This presentation describes a broad range of new media technologies and cultural-linguistic practices and discusses their relevance to foreign language education. In particular, I outline uses of social media, remix semiotic practices, new media literacies, and multiplayer gaming as settings for second and foreign language (L2) use and development.
