Abstract

Language teaching and learning have undergone tremendous changes in the last forty years. These changes have been influenced by not only changing views of language teaching and learning but also changes occurring in general education and global advancement. Another significant player is information and communications technologies (ICTs) which have brought about innovative changes both in general education (Laurillard, 2012) and language teaching (Chapelle, 2010), including English language teaching (ELT). This field has established itself as Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL). Given the ubiquitous presence of ICTs globally, their use in English language education contexts has significantly increased (Chik, 2013). In this context, Gary Motteram's edited volume is not only timely but also an invaluable addition to the field.
