dc.description.abstractThis case study examines the effectiveness of information and communication technology (ICT) in the Upriver Halq'eméylem language activities. The research indicates that ICT has been successful in supporting micro-level activities managed by individuals; however, while certain elements of ICT were identified by participants as having the potential to help increase fluency, fluency has not been achieved. Recommendations include the creation of a catalogue of all content developed and applications in use to be maintained by a central and agreed upon party; the use of applications in a Software as a Service (SaaS) or similar model; continuation of ongoing formal and informal meetings of the individuals who are working to revitalize the language; and, that the community attempt to determine why language is not being spoken while continuing to make the language visible. One additional finding is that the funding available may be driving the adoption of ICT within the language program; additional research is required to fully understand the effects of funding models. While these recommendations are specific to this community, they may support other decentralized language programs.en_US
