This module considers the theoretical perspective and practical application of new technological tools in language education. By examining cases of how technologies are implemented in teaching language knowledge and skills, you will be able to develop knowledge of the affordances of technology in second language learning. You also have opportunities to enhance your technology competence and confidence by exploring how different tools and apps work, and to gain  hands-on experience of designing, using, evaluating and contextualising new technologies in different learning contexts to address teaching objectives. There is also an opportunity for you to engage in teaching practice (with peers).

This is an optional module with no pre-requisite or co-requisite modules.  No specific knowledge and skills are required.
