Using ICT tools in English teaching and learning classes

Iran, ID CLEaR2015-238;

In this decade, significant progress has been made in the field of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to the extent that sometimes seems impossible to imagine life without the achievements of the field. That is why the present researcher, as an English teacher, decided to investigate the merits and demerits of using ICT in Iranian high school English classes. The study also aims to examine the implementation of ICT tools to motivate English teachers to teach better and encourage the learners to learn better. In this regard, a questionnaire was used to collect English teachers’ perceptions about the merits and demerits of using ICT tools in their classrooms. The results of this study are hoped to provide insights to the Ministry of Education in Iran to improve the insufficient use of ICT tools in English teaching and learning classes.
