Egorov, Victor V.; Jantassova, Damira D.; Churchill, Natalia
Educational Media International, v44 n3 p255-265 Sep 2007
This article discusses the implementation of the "Information and Communication Technologies in Foreign Language Teaching and Learning" course conducted as a component of the pre-service English language teacher training program in the Buketov Karaganda State University, Kazakhstan. The course was introduced in 2003. The central objective of the course is to develop pre-service language teachers' capacity to effectively integrate technology in language teaching and learning in their own classrooms. In this article, the authors briefly discuss the history of computer-assisted language teaching and learning, and describe their course, as well as preliminary results from their evaluation of the implementation of the course over the last three years. Their experience from the course implementation suggests that trainee teachers not only developed some useful skills to use technology with their own students, but also developed an understanding that information technology is a necessary tool in contemporary second-language education.
