Abstract

Digital technologies have long been a valuable resource for language teachers to use to support their teaching and student learning (Li, 2017). Despite efforts from educators, scho- lars and policymakers, however, the full integration of digital technologies into language teaching, or ‘normalisation’, had not been evident in language classrooms in many contexts before the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic (Moorhouse and Kohnke, 2021). Bax (2003) defined ‘normalisation’ as ‘the stage when a technology is invisible, hardly even recognised as a technology, taken for granted in everyday life’ (p. 23). Following the steps of ‘normalised’ technology integration in other human domains (e.g. banking, travel, medicine, entertainment), this special issue of the RELC Journal examines how digital technologies might be reimagined in the language teaching context in the post- pandemic digital age.
