Is technology a silver bullet for language teaching and learning? | Methods of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages | Scoop.it

Whereas using tech may have once meant a weekly trip to a computer lab, it can now involve anything, from Facebook and Twitter to podcasts and videos in the classroom.

If the teacher does not know the technology, he/she can't apply the pedagogy ... Technology is great to teach languages, I think a great software adapted to individual needs will substitute the teacher of languages in near future..
