    Abstract

    Over the past decade, computer-based technologies have changed from simple text processing to multimedia and online communication and educators. Including English language teachers, have been deluged with new materials and exhortations to adopt computer technology in their classrooms. This paper draws on research conducted through the National Centre for English Language Teaching and Research, research that has investigated computer-mediated English language teaching and learning. This research has identified constraints on how teachers integrate technology into classroom practice, difficulties learners encounter trying to use new technologies for language learning, and the impact of the new technologies on pedagogy. The paper therefore suggests issues teachers and administrators need to consider when using new technologies effectively in the language classroom.
