A reminder of what you can enjoy in this session
Recently the Internet has come to influence and control our lives. How is this affecting the language we teach? There is already a widespread opinion that the Internet is bad for the future of language. However, from the perspective of technological integration in teaching and learning of English Language, technology has encouraged a dramatic expansion in the variety and creativity of language. Flexibility and resourceful learning is extremely important when considering teaching and learning through using technology. Great motivational and learner oriented resources can be used for interactive discussion so that learners get ample opportunities to develop their capacity for comprehending ideas and information. Moreover, diverse cultural ideas and cross-cultural communication through global participation presents the best opportunities and practice for developing shared culture and is the best way for learning and teaching in this 21st century. Therefore, in this presentation, I will introduce practical classroom activities that will help teenage students to develop all their linguistic skills through social networking apps and websites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Edmodo, Youtube, Blogs. Web guest participants will learn how to adapt and use memes, viral videos, live stories, etc. to teach English as a foreign language.
