Meeting Description: International Symposium: 'Learning and Teaching Foreign Languages in the Digital Age'

Organized by the Minor in French Program at the Department of English of Al-Quds University in Jerusalem
14-15 April 2015

No doubt the teaching and learning of foreign languages has undergone a great upheaval in recent decades with the advent of new Information and Communication Technologies in general, and ICT in Learning and Teaching Foreign Languages in particular. Learners today are not the same as those of yesterday. Today's learners are totally immersed in technology. They spend significant periods of time in front of the computer on the internet using laptops, tablets and other technological means to access social networks and forums.

Using the old teaching methods will only strengthen the already existing gap between the learners and teachers, and this especially true with foreign languages. Thus, employing these new technologies in teaching is inevitable for effective results in today's digital world.

This symposium is intended as a field of reflections on the real contribution of the (ICT in Learning and Teaching Foreign Languages) at schools, colleges and universities. Their impact on the results, attitudes, motivations and teachers students etc.
