    Language Learning & Technology

    Today’s young people—the Net Generation—have grown up with technology all around them. However, teachers cannot assume that students’ familiarity with technology in general transfers successfully to pedagogical settings. This volume examines various technologies and offers concrete advice on how each can be successfully implemented in the second language curriculum.
