“Technology as Cognitive Tools”:

However, computer systems can serve as powerful catalysts for facilitating these skills assuming they are used in ways that promote reflection, discussion, and problem solving.” “Technology as Cognitive Tools” ( Jonassen , 1994 ) “Cognitive tools are unintelligent tools, relying on the learner to provide the intelligence not the computer. This means that planning , decision-making, and self-regulation of learning are the responsibility of the learner, not the computer.


“the key to successful use of technology in language teaching lies not in hardware or software but in “ humanware ”, our human capacity as teachers to plan, design, and implement effective educational activity. “ Humanware ” ( Warschauer , 2000 ) Language learning is an act of creativity, imagination, exploration, expression, construction, and profound social and cultural collaboration. If we use computers to fully humanise and enhance this act, rather than to try to automate it, we can help bring out the best that human and machine have to offer.”


Recommendations Don’t be afraid, Be prepared Familiarise yourself with ICT Set clear criteria and expectations Offer scaffolding B alance teacher’s facilitation and students’ autonomy Plan, plan, plan
