International Journal of Education and Development using Information and Communication Technology, v13 n1 p142-152 2017
The paper discusses how Information and Communication Technology (ICT) could be integrated in the teaching of English Language in Botswana Junior Secondary Schools. It does so by exploring opportunities and challenges faced by teachers of English Language and the students they teach. Fifty five (55) teachers in eleven (11) Junior Secondary Schools in the Kweneng region, west of the capital city, Gaborone, Botswana, took part in the study by means of responding to a questionnaire. The findings from the study show that the majority of teachers are aware that ICT could be used to enhance English Language teaching and learning and were willing to go for ICT training to improve their teaching methods. Most teachers think ICT is the computer which shows lack of knowledge on various ICT gadgets and tools available which could add variety to classroom contexts. The paper further highlights what needs to be done to help overcome challenges and promote integration of ICT in English Language classrooms. Teachers should embrace the use of technology as times have changed and learners need to be stimulated to be eager and interested in learning using ICT.
