This online course is intended to support English as a second language teachers in the integration of technology in vocabulary building.
With theDigital Action Plan in Education and Higher Education, announced on May 30, 2018, teachers will now have more access to technology in the classroom. The plan d’action numérique gave flexibility to each school in the choice of the devices to purchase and English as a second language teachers will therefore have access to different types of devices like tablets or portable computer. That is why we have chosen to present tools that can be used on all devices and are at low or no cost to users.
The objective of this course is not to teach the importance of vocabulary building since ESL teachers already value and use vocabulary building and strategies in their classroom but to integrate technology when it brings added value to their lesson.
