Teaching English as a Foreign Language from a New Literacy Perspective: A Guide for Egyptian EFL Student Teachers (Chapter One: Setting the Scene)
Abdallah, Mahmoud M. S.
Online Submission
The article presents Chapter One of my recent the book entitled, "Teaching English as a Foreign Language from a New Literacy Perspective: A Guide for Egyptian EFL Student Teachers." The chapter deals with the new reality of Teaching English as a Foreign in this ICT-dominated age in which the Internet has been playing a vital role in changing the nature of the English language, and subsequently the methods and techniques that should be used for teaching/learning it. It presents some recent approaches to literacy that have recently come to the fore to encompass the new literacy practices imposed by some new technological innovations, especially the Internet. Those practices extend beyond the traditional print-based practices that are still dominant in the Egyptian schools and English-language teacher education programmes. Moreover, the chapter presents a comprehensive list of those Web-based new literacies that pre-service English language teachers need in this age, especially in Egypt, so that they become able to cope with the new literacy challenges imposed by the Web as well as the informal, out-of-school literacy practices they have been increasingly involved in. This list is the main contribution of my recently finished PhD study conducted at the Graduate School of Education, College of Social Sciences and International Studies, University of Exeter, UK (Main source: Abdallah, M. M. S. (2011).
