Meaning making in the context of EFL teaching and learning with an artificial intelligence system
Within the realm of a technological innovation project for the creation of a virtual laboratory for teaching and learning English as a foreign language, this paper explores the discursive-performatic theory on language that is one of the principles guiding the work. Practical examples from the laboratory are described and fundamental concepts are explained. Meaning making in the historical/technological conditions of the laboratory is seen as taking place in the space between the reexamination of ways to teach formal, institutionalized knowledge on language structure while problematizing meanings and social themes, and reflecting on how language creates realities.
