No tech, low tech? Teaching and technology in low resource ELT contexts

1,974 views

Published on

Nicky Hockly's presentation on mobile technology projects in low resource contexts
Abstract: Is it possible to teach English with technology in low-resource contexts? Do teachers need to have expensive up-to-date technology, and reliable IT infrastructure to even consider integrating the use of technology into their English language classes? I address these questions by looking at what EFL teachers can and can't do in contexts with few resources, and provide some suggestions for teachers who would like to start working with technology in their classrooms, but are concerned that they do not have the means.
