New technologies and new literacies in the english classroom: a study

Silene Cardoso

Resumo


ABSTRACT

This article presents and briefly discusses some results of a survey conducted as part of a study on multiple literacies and the use of technology in English as a Foreign Language (EFL) classroom. An online questionnaire has been sent to English teachers of the third cycle and secondary education in Portugal with the aim to investigate their perceptions on the use of new technologies, particularly Web 2.0 tools, in their teaching practice. This article focuses particularly on the results from the questions related to materials and digital tools frequently used, teachers’ general view on the use of technology, as well as the digital and critical literacies approach. It has been found that although technology seems to be part of the teaching practice of this group of teachers – and although further research is necessary to deeply understand the actual use of technology in this particular scenario – it can be assumed that suitable guidance, training and further development of appropriate materials for teachers and students are necessary to facilitate and better integrate new technologies in the EFL classroom.

 

Keywords: New technologies and language learning. Multiliteracies. Digital literacies. Critical thinking. English language teaching.

RESUMO

Este artigo apresenta e discute brevemente alguns resultados de uma pesquisa realizada como parte de um estudo sobre múltiplas literacias e o uso da tecnologia na aula de inglês como língua estrangeira (English as a Foreign LanguageEFL) (Cardoso, 2017). Um questionário online foi enviado a professores de inglês do terceiro ciclo e secundário, em Portugal, com o objetivo de investigar as perceções e as opiniões deles a respeito do uso das novas tecnologias, especialmente dos recursos da Web 2.0, em sua prática profissional. O presente artigo enfoca particularmente os resultados obtidos das perguntas relacionadas à frequência de uso de materiais e recursos, à visão dos professores sobre o uso da tecnologia, assim como à abordagem das literacias digitais e críticas. Embora a tecnologia pareça fazer parte da prática discente desse grupo de professores, e ainda que pesquisas adicionais sejam necessárias para entender melhor o uso real dessa tecnologia nesse cenário em particular, é possível dizer que são necessárias algumas medidas para que a integração significativa e eficaz das novas tecnologias nas salas de aula de EFL, tais como, orientações adequadas e treinamento aos professores, e maior desenvolvimento de materiais apropriados.
