Enhancing language learning through technology: teaching in the 21st Century
This talk will take a ‘snap-shot’ of teaching in the 21st century. It will critically analyse six key learning technologies, explore some of the many pedagogical controversies in this field, and conclude with some exciting, practical ideas on how to successfully integrate technology into language courses. The speaker will draw on his background as a teacher, teacher trainer, DoS, author, manager and consultant to provide a multi-dimensional picture of teaching using technology. He will argue that by regarding pedagogy at the centre, a ‘win-win’ is possible for all stakeholders.
