Innovations in Learning Technologies for English Language Teaching

The British Council released a publication on innovation in technology use in English teaching and learning. This publication offers a different approach to the uses of learning technologies in the language classroom.

Innovations in Learning Technologies for English Language Teaching starts by considering the following contexts of language learning: primary, secondary and adult learners, then different specialist areas: Business English, English for Specific Purposes and English for Academic Purposes, and finally the assessment of language using technology. Each chapter embeds a number of real-life case studies into a framework of research. The chapters show some of the development of the field, and a wide range of technologies is covered.

Each chapter was written by a different author or group of authors: Chris Pim, Graham Stanley, Diane Slaouti, Zeynep Onat-Stelma and Gary Motteram, Nergiz Kern, Jody Gilbert, Russell Stannard and Anthony ‘Skip’ Basiel. Teachers from all over the world contributed with case studies.

 

I would really like to thank Nergiz Kern for inviting me to contribute with a case a study.

 

The book can be downloaded for free here or a print version can be bought here.

  2. I like it ,it is very Helpful post.Today, almost all activities, business deals, study materials, products and many more are available in other languages but by default they will be available in English. With English on the front seat we need to learn it in the best manner because future lies in English.
