TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATIONS IN ESL/EFL INSTRUCTION: A FRAMEWORK FOR STRUCTURING TECHNICAL MEDIA-BASED LESSONS

A. Khaldi

Abou Bekr Belkaid University (ALGERIA)
Over the past 30 years there have been drastic developments in the technical media that intersects with language teaching. Hence, many ESL/EFL teachers are now integrating this type of technology at a very fundamental level in their classes. This article presents an overview of the use of technical media as a tool for ESL/EFL instruction. The first section attempts at defining the concept of technical media as opposed to that of non-technical media. Then, the focus is on the rational behind incorporating the first type of media in the ESL/EFL language classroom. A further point to be raised revolves around some guidelines for the selection, adaptation of technical media-based materials. At this level, the article suggests a framework for structuring lessons using such a type of technology, along with sample lessons illustrating this framework. The overall aim is to better guide ESL/EFL teachers in their use of technical media, through providing them with some insights as to how to effectively integrate technology into their classroom lessons.
