Utilizing Technology in the ESL Classroom

For teaching tip 10 17


Having technology as a resource in the classroom can be extremely beneficial to students (and teachers).  Although each classroom set up is different, and some technology may not be possible to use during class, there are nonetheless numerous resources and technology-related websites that you can use with your teaching.  Many resources are available for basic activity engagement, such as listening, speaking, and pronunciation practice.  Other resources range from activity planning guides to daily articles for reading to games that focus on language learning.  We have compiled a list of helpful websites and resources in the downloadable Word Document.
