Technology and Language Learning (KCIL5624)


Learners no longer acquire knowledge by means of the written word and the pen alone. Technology and multimedia play a large role in people's lives and facilitate language use in many and diverse forms. This unit demonstrates how technology can be effectively used in the contemporary language classroom to enhance the proficiency of second language learners across all the macro skills. It introduces students to technology that will provide them with the basic skills to design their own materials and to develop multimedia materials and sites that can be adapted or modified for their own classroom use.
