Why do I integrate ICT in my English lesson? by Karin P.

We are living times where our students are using ICT in their everyday duties and routines, as searching for information on the Internet, chatting and game playing; therefore proficiency for ICT is fundamental to life in our modern technological society. Until now, I have been using technology as a way of engaging students in a new topic or content, as using videos or showing them pictures. Now, I have realized the opportunities that digital media provide today for teaching. To prepare students to be life long learners and global citizens of the 21st century we must successfully integrate ICT into both the English curriculum and English pedagogical practice.

ICT is a valuable tool to improve teaching and learning. As a teacher I believe ICT is a professional resource to provide students with the opportunities to communicate more effectively and to develop literacy skills, making them being part of their learning process and participating in real communicative contexts.
