Description

This chapter explores uses of technology in addressing culture, a complex and multifaceted construct, in the language class. The pedagogic practices identified offer learners opportunities to access and critically engage with online multimedia resources which relate to culture; to communicate and collaborate with culturally and/or geographically distant peers through intercultural exchange; and bridge learner engagement in online cultures with formal language learning.
