Blending Technology with Constructivism: Implications for an ELT Classroom
Kaya, Haldun
Teaching English with Technology, v15 n1 p3-13 2015
The constructivist approach in learning a foreign language has been receiving a great deal of attention over the last years due to its tenets, which fully comply with the principles of the effective language learning environment. Taking the foundations of constructivist pedagogy into consideration, the most innovative attempt that English language teachers have made so far is to integrate technology into their classes in order to improve students' communication skills, help them become active learners, and encourage them to reflect on their own learning. Along with a brief literature review on constructivist learning and the use of technology, this article aims to provide the readers with the related practical applications and implications.
