Motivating students in the English classroom with technology

Research output: Other contributionOther contributions


Enhancing second language learners’ motivation in English in the language classroom has always been the main challenge among teachers. However, it is vital for one to understand that technology is only a tool for facilitating teaching and learning, rather than the focus of the lesson. Various technological tools allow teachers and students to communicate and build closer relationship. This can then be one of the incentives for students to be more attentive in class and their learners’ autonomy could be developed. It is suggested that technologies can play an important role before the commencement of an English course, during every class and after each teaching session in motivating students.
