NECESSARY STEP FROM "ICT" TO "LTK" IN FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEACHING AND LEARNING




Abstract:
When we speak about new technologies and education, the first thing that comes to our mind is information and communications technologies or ICT. Technological progress and development of information systems have inevitably led to the incorporation of ICT in the teaching-learning methodologies. With the use of new digital educational content in our classrooms, temporal and spatial boundaries of those two processes have been transcended. However, teachers of foreign languages face the fact that the incorporation of ICT in the teaching procedure doesn’t imply necessary improvement of knowledge and language skills of students. Therefore, it is essential to develop digital competences of both teachers and students, which will further ensure adjustment of teaching-learning process to modern circumstances. Hence it is necessary to introduce and apply a new concept in teaching methodology - “LTK - Learning Technologies Knowledge“, which emphasizes the application of digital or virtual materials for the enhancement of teaching, learning and assessment. In this paper we will propose certain useful guidelines and tools which can ensure proper application of ICT in our educational environment, thus improving students’ knowledge and skills while learning a foreign language.
