  • 1. e-TESOL  What’s ESL? English as a Second Language  What’s EFL? English as a Foreign Language  What’s TESL? Teaching English as a Second Language. 是教導英語為第二種語言的學生英文課程  What’s TEFL? Teaching English as a Foreign Language. 提供給英語為非母語說話者的英文學習課程  What’s TESOL? Teaching English to Speakers of other languages.
  • 2. What’s e-TESOL? “e-TESOL” is generated and adopted, because “e” is nowadays frequently prefixed to many words or terms to represent the integration of information technology(IT) to specific expressions or concepts, such as e-generation, e-commerce, e-trade, e-store, e-mail, e-card, e-portfolio, e-learning, e-schooling, etc.
  • 3.  All the e’s at the beginning of the new terms refer to “electronic”-using technology, specifically the Web or telecommunications, to deliver or process specified activities.  Therefore, the term of e-TESOL for this class mainly indicates teaching English as a second or foreign language through electronic technologies, especially the Internet, the Web, or the Net.
  • 4.  The ministry of Education(MOE) has been promoting the integration of information technology to different subjects, including English, as one of the top priorities for school.  “computer idiots”  or e-trads(Slang for someone who is ignorant of the workings of email and the Internet)  目前網際網路的資源與服務最常使用的方式可分為:  (一)電子郵件(ElectronicMai,簡稱E-mail)。  (二)全球資訊網(WorldWideWeb,簡稱WWW)。  (三)檔案傳輸協定(FileTransferProtocol,簡稱FTP)。  (四)電子佈告欄(BulletinBoardSystem,簡稱BBS)。  (五)資訊查詢(Search)。  (六)其他服務與資源。
  • 5. Why e-TESOL?
  • 6. Why e-TESOL?  English is no longer just an international languages; it has become the global language. For anyone who wants or needs to participate directly in today’s increasingly globalized culture, English is now a basic requirement.  For this reason, learning English has become a primary educational goal for large numbers of people almost everywhere on earth.
  • 7. 善用資訊科技、激發創意思考、共享數位資源、保障 數位機會 教育部推動「中小學資訊教育」  The traditional school policy of beginning English instruction in the 7th grade has already been seriously questioned an challenged.  Many pre-school children are unofficially beginning to learn the language, and students in elementary school are starting to officially study English as foreign language from the 3rd grade. Some local governments are initiating English instruction in the 1st grade.
  • 8. TOEFL=Test of English as a Foreign Language
  • 9. GEPT=General English proficiency Test Getting students to pass the elementary level for the GEPT has been the supreme goal for most children’s EFL institutes.
  • 10. Why e-TESOL? Due to the influence of paper-and-pencil-test-driven formats on classroom instruction, TEFL in Taiwan is generally focused on languages usage, not use. The English language is, for the most part, learned passively as a school subject, not as a communication tool. Although the facilities and the environments for English learning are getting better nowadays, opportunities for students to use the language are still limited.
  • 11. 1. What action should be taken? 2. What teaching methods and what technologies can be used to confront the challenges we face?  In fact, ESL/EFL teachers have a variety of alternatives.  In terms of teaching methods, many approaches are now available to anyone who wants to take the time to read up on them. The most important recent shift in TESOL methodology has been the increased emphasis on approaches aimed at improving learners’ communicative abilities.  Thus, the ruling trend, currently, is toward communicative language teaching (CLT).
  • 12. Why e-TESOL? Some computer-based, interactive models of instructional software have been developed for individual and independent learning.
  • 13. What has happened is the development of the Internet because it provides a more powerful learning environment than any other technology-based formats can. Internet-based technology provides an invaluable tool for ESL/EFL teachers who are trying to put theories and concepts of CLT into practice.
  • 14. Why e-TESOL? ESL/EFL learners can benefit from many international networks of schools and programs that provide: 1. a platform for authentic language use; 2. a structured setting for communication; 3. an integrated context for collaborative/ cooperative learning; 4. a real audience for reading and writing for purpose; 5. a culturally diverse community for language enhancement; and 6. a resource for plentiful authentic materials

  • 17. There are dozens of reasons why e-TESOL is wanted and needed. Nine of these are explored below.  To facilitate Communicative Language Teaching  To catch up with the Age of Information Technology  To promote Acculturation  To Stimulate Learning Motivations  To Facilitate Flexibility  To Increase the Students’ Exposure to the Target Language  To Facilitate Collaborative Instruction  To Support Lifelong Learning  To Enhance Global Views
