The use of technology as a tool for teaching a foreign language (english) in the Centro de Estudios Tecnológicos Industrial y de Servicios N° 151
Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla
"The research described in this thesis is focused on the role of technology as a tool for teaching a foreign language namely how foreign language teachers have used electronic devices to enhance the results of the student in learning a foreign language. In recent years the use of electronic devices to teach the English language has increased. Certainly it is becoming increasingly easier and popular to learn a foreign language with electronic devices such as computers, cell phones, DVD players, iPods, and eBooks. A possible reason for this change (in how people learn a new language) is that it is now the norm for people to use electronic devises as part of their everyday lives. This research work is highly important because it has been observed that the use of activities using technology as a tool is really necessary for teaching and learning a foreign language. It has been shown that teenagers using electronic devices learn better than those using traditional methods of learning such as grammar books, a possible reason for this is that teenagers find electronic devices to be a much more dynamic learning method then grammar books."
