  1. 1. Technology in the classroomTechnology in the classroom
  2. 2. Technology in language teaching • The printing press – revolution • INTERNET has reshaped nearly all aspects of society. • A computer and a telephone line
  3. 3. ICT (Information and Communications Technology) • CALL (Computer Assisted Language Learning) • TELL (Technology Enhanced Language Learning)
  4. 4. Although the use of ICT by language teachers is still not widespread, the use of technology in the classroom is becoming increasingly important, and it will become a normal part of ELT practice in the coming years. Why? Internet access is becoming available for learners. Young learners are growing up with technology (digital natives).
  5. 5. English is being used in technologically mediated contexts. Technology is offered with published materials such as coursebooks and resource books for teachers. It offers new ways for practising language and assessing performance. It’s becoming increasingly mobile. Using a range of ICT tools give learners exposure to and practice in all of the four main language skills.
  6. 6. Some negative comments from teachers
  7. 7. Final comment Though technology provides a valuable medium for helping bring classrooms alive, successful results depend on how this technology is used. In the end, it is not the technology itself but the teaching that makes the difference.
