The TEFL industry is notoriously slow at adopting new technology. Unless you are lucky enough to work for a company or institution that is profitable and brave enough to make a sizeable investment the chances are that a lot of your lesson preparation is still spent cueing tapes and preparing OHP film. However as teachers and students become more tech savvy the more archaic cassette players seem and the attractions of using new technologies grow. The Internet and Young Learners by Gordon Lewis was published in 2004 but I imagine, for the reasons stated above, in a lot of schools it still is not seen as particularly pertinent reading. This is a shame because it is full of excellent ideas and written in a way that even the biggest technophobe would unlikely find intimidating.
The book is a resource for teachers of children age 8-13. The primary audience are learners of English as foreign language but I imagine that a lot of the material would be suited to classes in any primary or secondary school. There are around 60 activities spread through four main sections: First Steps, Communication Activities, Web Search Activities and Web Creation Activities. The tasks start from quite a basic level, for example teaching students computer objects such as what a mouse is, to creating your own movie on a web page.
Each task is clearly laid out with the level, appropriate age group, time, aims and preparation and a step-by-step guide. Lewis' style is straightforward; there is no techno jargon to confuse or infuriate, his aims are clear and always focussed on helping students improve their language ability as well as their computer skills.
