Blended Learning and Technology Integration

Blended learning and technology integration are different ways of using technology in second language teaching and learning. Broad-band connectivity, the popularity of mobile devices, the coming of Web 2.0 and digital games have changed the dynamics of the traditional class integrating technology and changing the role of the learner. Blended learning offers a different instructional design for learning, a new classroom structure, materials, classroom management and teacher and learners’ roles.. In this talk we’ll explore: ideas for integrating technology in the traditional face-to-face class; Blended learning models, What is the right blend?; classroom management challenges.
