PodCast: Why Use Technology in the Language Classroom?

In this episode, Dr. Ken Beatty provides insights into the benefits of using technology from both the teachers’ and learners’ perspectives. Dr. Beatty makes practical suggestions, and he offers advice to the many teachers who would like to do more with educational technologies, but say they don’t have time to learn them. Dr. Beatty is a Professor of Computer-assisted Language Learning at Anaheim University. He is also widely published in his field. This episode was recorded by Jim Edgar at the 2012 TESL Canada Conference.
