  • Not about any of the plethora of websites to help in learning the language. The wealth of information available on the Web affords teachers andlearners access to language learning resources like never before t here are plenty of credible and experienced educational technology out there which can lead you to quality materials, lesson plans and activities for use in your classroom.
  • Of interactive digital technology that integrated into the EFL classroom
  • Reading critically (with pen in hand) Writing to learn, creating, planning, problem solving, discussing, debating, and asking questions) Performing/presenting, inquiring, exploring, explaining, evaluating, and experimenting) Interacting with other students, gesturing and moving
  • Providing students the opportunity to connect their classroom experience with concrete connection to their lives. content beyond the course, across the curriculum, and into life-long learning we are equipping our students with life-long learning skills. 
  • when trying to create an   engaged learning environment   multiple opportunities for students to engage and participate challenge is on the learner side
  • • Interactive means many different things. Meets the wants ande needs of your stuetns
  • What kind of thinking does it promote?
  • Does it facilitate real communication? if the goal is that people develop communicative skills in a second language, how far can we go with all this computer business?” students feel more engaged when the purpose of their tasks simulate real-world tasks.”
  • Shifting information around or actually putting the information to use
  • Examples interactive technology used in language classroom
  • This is the home page that students and teachers see when we log in.
  • .The most useful functions for me are assignments and discussions. My students enjoy discussing texts on the assignment page itself. Sometimes they discuss it, and sometimes they ask each other clarifying questions. This is helpful to me because I do not have to respond to as many confused emails. This is an example of the assignment page. You can see that it is clear which assignment is tonight’s homework and which are past assignments. You’ll notice that a student’s homework for this particular course is still posted on the right hand side of the screen.
  • it is better for students because all assiagnmts are easily and consistently organized in one place. Simple, engaging and students learn from anywhere. All the content in one place. Allowing students with various learning styles(visually (by seeing), auditory (by hearing), or kinetically (by doing) alternate modes to interpret ideas and understand challenging concepts. .
  • allows students to interact with each other in a way that extends collaborative learning from the classroom to their homes it is better for students because all assiagnmts are easily and consistently organized in one place. .
  • Each morning, a student records the Word of the Day Half the work, twice the benefit. If a student is absent, he can access the blog at any time, from home or school, and hear how the word is pronounced... especially helpful for for words like "“ To show the average fluency rate beyond level when reading
  • /yo͞oˈbikwətəs/
  • Choosing references and external material
  • It's really a great collaborative tool
  • Does it worth the effort? If yes why and if no please share with us the reasons. Why not Half the work, twice the benefit.
