Review by: Graeme Hodgson on Aug. 10, 2015 : (no rating)
This publication aims to be ‘all things to all people’, in the sense that it caters for those completely new to the idea of using technology in the classroom as well as those who may already be technophiles and have their own array of favourite tools and websites, yet who may still be unaware of some of the resources available. The fact that the 50 tips are subdivided into functional categories such as “Automatic Speech Recognition”, “Classroom Response Systems” and “Classroom Management Tools & Techniques” means it’s possible to experiment with different resources under one category before settling on one. However, I did feel that a content list/page at the beginning would have been useful for quick reference, enabling the busy teacher to quickly find the exact tool (s)he is looking for in preparation for a class. The guidelines and ‘best practices’ in the Introduction are very valid and should be carefully followed by those who are thinking of incorporating more technology into the classroom. In summary, a very useful resource that teachers of ESL/EFL worldwide will certainly benefit from!
