Choosing Technology Tools to Meet Pronunciation Teaching and Learning Goals
Yoshida, Marla Tritch
CATESOL Journal, v30 n1 p195-212 2018
For decades, researchers and teachers have suggested ways to apply technology in teaching and learning pronunciation, and there are many useful tools that can be used for this purpose. However, many teachers feel unsure about how to teach pronunciation at all, and the idea of using computers, mobile devices, or other technology may make pronunciation teaching seem doubly intimidating. If we look at technology from a different viewpoint, focusing first on the pedagogical tasks that teachers need to perform and then choosing the most effective tools to support each one, we can achieve better results for both teachers and learners. Based on both research and the classroom practice of experienced teachers, this article evaluates a range of available tools to accomplish tasks such as providing a pronunciation model, recording and responding to learners' pronunciation practice, and offering independent practice. The focus is on tools that are readily available to most classroom teachers, practical to learn and use, and free or inexpensive.
