    Many teachers are turning to computer-based technology to support language teaching. However, often the technology, rather than instructional goals becomes the focus of lessons. This paper reports on several research projects conducted with teachers across Australia, demonstrating how they used the new technologies in instruction that was carefully scaffolded to meet language learning goals. To scaffold searching for information on the Web, teachers needed to consider the language, content, navigation and design of webpages. To use the computer for communicating, such as for email or chat, teachers needed to stage lessons so that learners focussed on language as well as the content of their messages.
