Review quote

"The Focus series is a set of instructional guides for primary and secondary teachers, but teachers of adults will find a lot they can use... I found the research interesting [and] I was particularly interested in the discussion about vocabulary acquisition." * Modern English Teacher * "Focus on Learning Technologies incorporates pertinent synopses of classroom settings and research involving technology... Of particular interest are Hockly's references to investigation into the effectiveness of digital technology in the classroom... this is a well-researched and informative guide for both trainee and practising teachers." * IATEFL Voices * "Book of the month... Focus on Learning Technologies is a timely addition to the innovative Oxford Key Concepts for the Language Classroom series, which aims to link research and practice... This book addresses the critical question: do digital technologies support language learning?... Highly suitable for teacher development programs, this book is accessible, balanced and authoritative. Excellent." * EL Gazette * Nicky Hockly has once again given us a thoughtful exploration of technology use in the language classroom. Learning Technologies provides a readable look at the research behind classroom use of digital devices and the Internet, with a focus on primary and secondary schools. Research should inform how ESL and EFL teachers, administrators, and policy-makers make decisions about adopting and using technology. * Deborah Healey, Senior Instructor at the American English Institute, University of Oregon * Teachers will find an accessible introduction to the complex technology choices and issues they face in their English language teaching today. Nicky Hockly has selectively harvested and masterfully presented the key concepts to create a gateway into this complex area of research and practice. * Carol A. Chapelle, Distinguished Professor, Iowa State University *show more
