Techno-Pedagogic Practices for Enhancing English Language Skills
Jose, G. Rexlin; Raja, B. William Dharma
Journal on English Language Teaching, v1 n1 p1-8 Jan-Mar 2011
The effervescent progress of technologies in the modern era demands new pedagogical techniques in the process of effective and successful teaching and learning. The prospective teachers who are competent with technical skills and have command over language alone can produce articulate students. Prospective teachers, when they enter the real classroom, are supposed to mould any type of clay into an anticipated form. Therefore, they must be trained by the teacher-educators in such a way that they, in future, should be able to cultivate pupils' inquisitiveness in learning through all senses in order to improve the level of language skills. The advent of multimedia outdates the traditional teaching method but its adoption is done at a snail's pace. Undoubtedly, multimedia technology plays an effective role in the process of teaching and learning language skills. Multimedia tools act as cognitive enhancers. They augment the learning experience of the prospective teachers and enable them to concentrate on the development of more sophisticated cognitive skills. The powerful cognitive ability of a learner reflects his or her profundity in language skills and effective communication. It is possible that they can hone their language skills greatly and effectively through techno pedagogic practices. But the second language learners' the language skills are seen to be left less developed in the absence of multimedia tools. Hence, it is the responsibility of teacher educators to strive hard with all their verve and vitality to make accessible to these learners the latest techno-pedagogic strategies to remove all the road blocks to their acquisition of the level of competence expected of them.
