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.
