The impact of new technologies on language learning is enormous and rapidly changing requiring both educators and students to acquire new skills. Digital Literacies walks English language teachers and teacher trainers through everything digital, from understanding what hardware and software they might need; and how ELT students can find, trust and use information; developing a digital profile and safety concerns. There is an extensive section with digital activities, from blogging and understanding how to use avatars, right through to basic html. The authors also discuss implementing this in the classroom and how to translate digital activity into research.
This book is for English language teachers and teacher trainers who need support in understanding the ever-changing digital landscape.
