  • 9. Stages of Adoption of Technology. .
    Stage 1: Awareness
    I am aware that technology exists but have not used it - perhaps I'm even avoiding it.
    Stage 2: Learning the process
    I am currently trying to learn the basics. I am often frustrated using computers. I lack confidence when using computers.
    Stage 3: Understanding and application of the process
    I am beginning to understand the process of using technology and can think of specific tasks in which it might be useful.
    Stage 4: Familiarity and confidence
    I am gaining a sense of confidence in using the computer for specific tasks.
    I am starting to feel comfortable using the computer.
    Stage 5: Adaptation to other contexts
    I think about the computer as a tool to help me and am no longer concerned about it as technology. I can use it in many applications and as an instructional aid.
    Stage 6: Creative application to new contexts
    I can apply what I know about technology in the classroom. I am able to use it as an instructional tool and integrate it into the curriculum.
  • 10. Based on your experience teaching English, you will "Agree" or "Disagree" or "No opinion." next to each of these statements.
    Students learn better by doing.
    Collaboration among students does not increase the effectiveness of the learning process.
    Teachers work better in isolation
    Autonomy means working without a teacher
    EFL students do not like to use materials which are up to date and rich in multimedia content.
    Students know more about technology than I do
  • 11. Is Technology essential?
  • 12. Teachers and Teaching
  • 13.
  • 14. Professional Development

  • 15. New Generation of Students
    M.A Andres Atehortua A.
  • 16. New Generation of Students
    M.A Andres Atehortua A.
  • 17. Today’s Learners Are Different
    The first generation to grow up with computers, videogames, digital music players, video cams, cell phones.
    They think and process information fundamentally differently from their predecessors.
    Marc Prensky, Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants 2001
    M.A Andres Atehortua A.
  • 18. Millennial Students
    • Have never known a life without
    computers and the Internet
    • Consider computers a part of life
    • 19. Connect to information
    • 20. Communicate in real-time
    • 21. Have social networking
    • 22. Have been raised in the presence of video and computer games
    • 23. Students in their 20s may have had more experience with games than with reading (Oblinger,2004).
    These experiences helped to form the way in which millennials seek, process, and report information.
  • 24. Individuals raised with computers deal with information differently compared to previous cohorts: “They develop hypertext minds, they leap around.” (Prensky, 2001)
    These learning styles originated with
    millennials growing up with technology
    • millennials were born around the time the PC was introduced
    • 25. 20 percent of the students began using computers between the ages of 5 and 8
    • 26. and almost all millennials were using computers by the time they were 16 to 18 years of age (Jones, 2002).
  • New Learners/New Language
    Their learning expectations are very different, as they have expressed them in my classes:
    They want control
    They want to create
    They want to share
    They want to collaborate
    They want to re-mediate, re-combine, “mash up”
    These expectations are expressed in the tools they use almost everyday:
    YouTube "Broadcast Yourself" (plus comments)
    Facebook (and comments)
    Blogs (and their comments)
  • 27. Seven Ways Technology is used in Language Learning
    Presentation: of new language e.g. Boxmind
    Practice: language in context & skills e.g. Listening
    Testing: placement, progress, achievement
    Reference: task or project work
    Publishing: students’ work, course materials
    Communication:teacher - student, native - non-native speakers, across cultures
    Simulation: ‘real-world’ within the classroom
  • 28. “The information revolution
    requires a matching
    education revolution”
