The 3rd Pan-Pacific Technology Enhanced Language Learning (PPTELL 2020) & Critical Thinking Meeting is a platform of exchange for researchers, educators, and practitioners on the theory and/or application of state-of-the-art uses of technology to enhance language learning. Through intra-disciplinary and interdisciplinary interactions, this conference strives to promote diverse forms of cooperation between academia and industry to ensure thriving development of TELL. This year’s theme will focus on how technology enhanced language learning benefits from the prevalence and ease with which we can communicate and connect globally.  Each of us is more than ever connected with the world, each other, our contexts and environments, our devices, and with data. How has this connectivity influenced technology-enhanced language learning?  We invite all papers on the concerns of TELL but especially those that connect with our theme for the year.
