Teachers’ Use of Technology with Young Language Learners in the COVID-19 Endemic World

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference paper

Abstract

In the pre-pandemic world, the frequent use of technology for teaching in the typical young language learner classroom was rare. This all changed with the emergence and rapid spread of the COVID-19 virus. The pandemic forced teachers to reconceptualize their teaching fully mediated through technology. This led to innovation and the widespread use of technology for teaching. However, we are now in the COVID-19 endemic world, where teachers and students have returned to physical classrooms. In this talk, drawing on my own empirical work and the work of others, I will share the effects COVID-19 has had on teachers' use of technology with young language learners, and how teachers are now using technology in their physical classrooms to enhance and transform their practices. I will also propose innovative ways teachers can use technology for teaching.
