Using technology in the language classroom
Technology is very much part of language learning. We are living in a digital world and there is great value in incorporating new technologies as an integral part of the learning process. There are many ways to incorporate technology in language learning. Rather than replacing more traditional methods, blended learning combines digital media with classroom learning. Virtual learning environments offer students distance learning opportunities wherever and whenever they want as well as opportunities to learn collaboratively with their peers. Technology lends itself very well to personalised and independent learning where students can work at their own pace and receive immediate feedback on their results and progress. Using technology in the classroom makes the language learning more relevant, engaging and accessible.
Future Learning – the leader in using technology in the classroom
Future Learning (FL), is an exciting and innovative English language school located in Dublin, Ireland and is the first language school teaching solely through technology. This innovative and exciting approach developed in response to a demand for technology to be an integral part of language learning both inside and outside the classroom.
While the teaching and learning remain face to face, the entire educational approach at FL is centred around harnessing the everyday devices which students are familiar with and eager to use in the classroom. These devices include tablets, mobile phones, desktop computers, laptops, interactive and touch screen boards. FL operates in schools and institutes that provide modern 21st Century learning environments.
Future Learning is the first language school to offer focused technology-enhanced learning programmes specifically designed by experts. The team are proficient language teachers with a great knowledge of incorporating the new technologies in their teaching to create progressive and fun learning environments. Their director is an expert in the area of educational technology and one of the most experienced English language school figures in Ireland. All students use tablet devices (e.g. iPad) and technology every day, both in class and to support their independent learning.
Future Learning’s offer includes a whole range of programmes, with technology supporting and enhancing learning opportunities throughout. Find out more about Future Learning’s innovative offer in their adult school in Dublin as well as their young learner centres in Dublin, Athlone and Sligo.
