In this era, it is critical to leverage technology in the classroom because technology is the #2 pencil of the 21st century. Students having fun within the framework of their school-based activities is an integral aspect of Effective Teaching and Learning. Language acquisition teachers have a specific niche: Their job is to teach students a whole new language, including the nuanced rules of grammar and cultural norms. Technology offers language teachers a chance to supplement their instruction by:
Differentiating: Not all students are the same. Each one has different strengths and needs. Technology give teachers additional resources to reach all learners.
Engaging students: Technology is often interactive, allowing users a chance to be engaged in learning experiences. You can't do that with a book!
Applying language: With language acquisition, you either use it or lose it. Technology gives students many opportunities to use their broadening language skills in real-world applications.
During this session we will share with you a few of our favorite user friendly tech tools for use in the language acquisition classroom.

The participants can use these tools with their students in all language acquisition classes for grades 6 through to grade 12. These tools will help students to become more engaged language learners and make learning a new language fun.
