  • 1. Karla Katherine Andrade Vargas Milton Javier Gómez Toledo TECHNOLOGY AND SECOND LANGUAGE ACQUISTION
  • 2. Technology is a body of knowledge used to create tools, develop skills, and extract or collect materials. It is also the application of science (the combination of the scientific method and material) to meet an objective or solve a problem. http://science.education.nih.gov/supplements/nih4/technology/guide/lesson1.htm Technology can be most broadly defined as the entities, both material and immaterial, created by the application of mental and physical effort in order to achieve some value. In this usage, technology refers to tools and machines that may be used to solve real-world problems. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technology#Definition_and_usage What is technology?

    • Group 2: What are the disadvantages of using technology in second language acquisition?
  • 5. ADVANTAGES OF USING TECHNOLOGY IN SECOND LANGUAGE ACQUISITION Technology increases contact with the target language and provides authentic materials for study. Technology can prove practices for students because they learn by doing. Technology offers students more motivation when learning Technology enhances students’ achievements and emphasizes individual needs. Technology encourages greater interaction between teachers and students and students and peers. Technology promotes independence from a single source of information and enlarges global understanding. Technology helps students build up higher self-steem. Technology helps students develop their linguistic skills.
  • 6. DISADVANTAGES OF USING TECHNOLOGY IN SECOND LANGUAGE ACQUISTION Technology is not available for everybody (low-budget school and low-income students) Teachers and learners should have basic technology knowledge before they apply computer technology to assist second language teaching and learning. The software of computer assisted language learning (CALL) is still imperfect. Current computer technology mainly deals with reading, listening and writing skills. Even though, some speaking programs have been developed recently, their functions are still limited. Computers cannot handle unexpected situations.
  • 7. What is Internet? The Internet is a standardized, global system of interconnected computer networks that connects millions of people. The system uses the Internet Protocol Suite (TCP/IP) standard rules for data representation, signaling, authentication, and error detection. It is a network of networks that consists of millions of private and public, academic, business, and government networks of local to global scope that are linked by copper wires, fiber-optic cables, wireless connections, and other technologies. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet
