It has been said that, while technology advances at an ever-increasing rate, pedagogy sometimes takes longer to catch up. This collection of studies is designed to help teachers, and all those connected with language teaching, reflect on how ICT affects the teaching and learning process. Edited by one of the UK’s leading figures in the use of ICT in language learning, Reflections on ICT presents the results of a series of research projects, as well as shorter case studies by practising teachers, covering issues as diverse as videoconferencing, Web publishing, reading skills for the Internet and resources for lesser-taught languages. It concludes with a section on training student teachers in the use of ICT and provides a vision of how new technologies will transform language learning in the next decade.
