4 The use of ICT in the classroom is an extremely important and powerful resource for the teaching and learning of foreign languages. The Internet offers great teaching and learning opportunities as an educational tool to be used in our classes of foreign languages, and combined with more traditional methodologies, promotes much more effective and meaningful learning. There are many resources and materials on the Net for teachers and learners of foreign languages, but the selection of these resources and materials has to be taken into account. INTRODUCTION (I) The use of ICT in the Teaching & Learning of EFL/ESL Lecturer: MIGUEL ÁNGEL MILÁN

5 Teachers can also create their own materials, which can be adapted and contextualised to the needs of their students. Online educational tools offer a new methodological conception for the teaching and learning of foreign languages, as the concepts of time and space vary. ICT reinforce the teaching-learning process, but it also promotes self-evaluation and self-study via online tools. INTRODUCTION (II) The use of ICT in the Teaching & Learning of EFL/ESL Lecturer: MIGUEL ÁNGEL MILÁN

6 1. Latest contributions to the Teaching and Learning of Foreign Languages: Collaborative Learning, CLIL, CALL, E-Learning, B- Learning Collaborative Learning is a situation in which two or more people learn or attempt to learn something together. It refers to methodologies and environments in which learners engage in a common task where each individual depends on and is accountable to each other. Collaborative learning is heavily rooted in Vygotsky’s views. We have Collaborative Learning when groups of students work together to search for understanding, meaning, or solutions or to create a product of their learning. Examples of activities are: collaborative writing, group projects, joint problem solving, debates, study teams, etc. The use of ICT in the Teaching & Learning of EFL/ESL Lecturer: MIGUEL ÁNGEL MILÁN

7 CLIL: Content and Language Integrated Learning It refers to situations where subjects, or parts of subjects, are taught through a foreign language with dual-focussed aims, namely the learning of content, and the simultaneous learning of a foreign language. (Marsh, 1994) This approach involves learning subjects such as history, geography or others, through an additional language. It can be very successful in enhancing the learning of languages and other subjects, and developing in the youngsters a positive ‘can do’ attitude towards themselves as language learners. (Marsh, 2000) The use of ICT in the Teaching & Learning of EFL/ESL Lecturer: MIGUEL ÁNGEL MILÁN 1. Latest contributions to the Teaching and Learning of Foreign Languages: Collaborative Learning, CLIL, CALL, E-Learning, B- Learning

8 CALL: Computer-Assisted Language Learning is a form of computer-based learning which carries two important features: bidirectional learning and individualized learning. It is not a method. CALL materials are tools for learning. The focus of CALL is learning, and not teaching. CALL materials are used in teaching to facilitate the language learning process. It is a student-centered accelerated learning material, which promotes self-paced accelerated learning. The use of ICT in the Teaching & Learning of EFL/ESL Lecturer: MIGUEL ÁNGEL MILÁN 1.

9 eLearning is a term that encompasses all forms of Technology-Enhanced Learning (TEL) or very specific types of TEL such as online or Web- based learning. It is used to define a specific mode to attend a course or program of study where the students rarely or never meet face-to-face, nor access on-campus educational facilities, because they study online.

10 B-Learning (Blended Learning) A blended learning approach can combine face-to-face instruction with computer-mediated instruction, under the supervision and support of the teacher inside and outside the classroom. A typical example of blended learning methodology would be a combination of technology-based materials and face-to-face sessions to present content. Learners and teachers work together to improve the quality of learning and teaching, the ultimate aim of blended learning being to provide realistic practical opportunities for learners and teachers to make learning independent, useful, sustainable and ever growing.
