  3. 3. Why do we need to incorporate technology in EAL Instruction? “Outside school, students constantly interact with technologies such as iPods, mobile phones, the internet and social networking sites, so it is little wonder there's an expectation that these technologies will also support their learning in the classroom.” (1) “When effectively integrated into the curriculum, technology tools can extend learning in powerful ways.” (2)
