Technology and Teaching English Language Learners

This unprecedented text is an indispensable tool for teachers of English language learners who want to connect the theory of language learning to technology applications and second language teaching strategies. Tailored to one's needs, it is coherently organized around teaching and approaches with which second language teachers are familiar, including communicative, content-based, skills-based, and inquiry-based teaching. Butler-Pascoe and Wiburg leave no stone unturned and provide an extensive, up-to-date coverage of timely issues such as using technology for communicative language teaching; using technology to teach oral communication skills and reading and writing; teaching thinking and inquiry-based learning with English language learners; culture, community, and diverse learners; and using computers for assessment in second language teaching.
