They need opportunities to hear, write, speak, and read English. Technology can play an integral part in providing English Language students with valuable language experiences as they learn a new language”(2005, p.56). In other words, technology provides a rich linguistic environment for English language learners and facilitates the language class. Wang (2005) and Green (2005) show that the diversity provided by a technology system can usefully affect language education in terms of the four macro skills. Also, in their argument, they answer questions about how efficient the integrating of technology in language classes is and what kinds of services computer technologies provide for these classrooms.
ICT stands for Information and communication technology. In educational institutions, ICT's are a range of tools meant for the purpose to aid teachers and learners in all areas of the curriculum. ICT, if used correctly, attempts to improve achievement, motivation and thinking across all subjects when used as learning tools. ICT enables the student to represent and construct their own understanding from the vast amounts of information that is available to them. Students would incorporate ICT to reflect, inquire, manage and access information to create ideas and evaluations that could be communicated with others.

ICT’s provide added innovation, acceleration, enrichment, motivation and engagement to students learning and help to relate school experience to work practices states Yusuf (2005). The use of information communication technology and information technology in education can be divided into two categories, for education and in education.

CTE courses were originally built to as a pathway to prepare students for industry endorsed certifications. ICTs have become a valuable tool to enhance teaching and learning in all schools. For teachers ICT is a professional resource, a mode of classroom delivery, and a source of valid and valuable text types. For students, ICT provides opportunities to communicate more effectively and to develop literacy skills. Because of its interactive and dynamic nature, ICT has the potential to meet the needs of individual students by providing opportunities to direct their learning and to pursue information, or complete tasks, in ways which meet their own interests and needs.
In the field of educational sector the use of information and communication technology (ICT) carried incredible progress in both developed and developing country. In teaching-learning process ICT has also made revolution for changing the roles of teachers and learners. ICT is being used successfully in developed
In what ways does IM usage affect students’ writing ability? How does “IM-speak” change students’ views of what is considered “proper” language?

If he chooses to use ICT as part of the methodology, there is an underpinning belief of what technology does to facilitate the learning. A thorough understanding of a theory would yield a better preparation and approach to teaching (Jacobsen & Lock, 2004). Bates and Poole (2003) argue that how pupils learn is influenced or linked to the role of media technology in teaching, learning, planning, design, and delivery of technology-based courses. Roblyer (2003) observes that the appropriate role of technology depends on the teachers' or educators' perception of the goals of education itself and the appropriate instru... ... middle of paper ... ...ills. The work of the teacher is to find ways or approaches that will motivate learners to construct their knowledge based on prior knowledge, experience and their view of the real world.
Bulletin Boards as Dialogic Constructivism for Learners The advent of technology in the classroom has brought many new acronyms into teachers' lexicon: MOOs, MUDs, VREs, as well as chats and Discussion boards. Such technology, when students are loosed upon it, decenter the teacher and empower the student. Such a transition is firmly grounded in the ideological work of Friere who admonished that learning requires that students create knowledge and not be mere "receptacles for received knowledge." Discussion Boards, particularly, extend the notion of "classroom discussions" into a realm much more inclusive, and often more beneficial for students. Such peer learning aims to "sharpen academic skills…and enhance subject matter mastery by promoting deeper levels of understanding based on discussion and a free exchange of ideas" (De Lisi 5).
