This module will introduce students to the latest technologies and on-line learning environments used in language teaching. These will be presented in the context of theoretical discussions on their pedagogical value and in terms of their applicability to a range of learning contexts. Students will also be able to try these tools in hands on sessions. The assessment will give students the opportunity to design and develop their own lesson plan and/or materials applying pedagogical principles relevant to the digital classroom and using one or more of the on-line and digital technology tools introduced during the module.
*Please note that although all module information is correct for the 2017/18 academic year, it is subject to change for future academic years.
