Information and Communications Technology (ICT) presents teachers of English with both opportunities and difficulties. How can ICT be integrated with existing best practice in English teaching? How can new resources be used most creatively? Above all, how can we ensure that ICT actually enhances pupils' worthwhile learning?
English in the Digital Age answers these questions. It shows, through detailed case studies, how ICT can be used to enhance the teaching of traditional material - most notably Shakespeare - and to introduce new material - even computer games - in educationally valuable ways. From well-established media (video, film and audio tape) to the latest online resources, the authors show how to apply the lessons to be learned from current practice and how English teaching is likely to develop in the near future.
