I think that as a SLA researcher, it is very important not to let the technology "blind" your research. So many "new shiny" technologies appear that it is very tempting to focus on the technology itself rather than in the language learning. This is the same for teachers, curriculum developers and administrators. Bringing technology in the language classroom has to be a decision made based on SLA research and conscious pedagogical choices. The technology should follow, or better "accompany" the language teaching methodology and pedagogical choices.
