Abstract

This paper presents the project ‘Technology-Enhanced English Language Learning’ which was made to meet the requirements for completion of the course ‘Building Teaching Skills Through the Interactive Web’ within the E-Teacher Scholarship Program offered by the American English Institute, University of Oregon. The project was created and conducted at the Pedagogical Faculty in Sarajevo, University of Sarajevo, in order to meet the students’ needs and address the particular issues and problems by implementing some of the technology-enhanced changes in the actual teaching context, i.e. a Class Blog, a Web Quest and a Nicenet Class. The target class for this project was a group of 30 Bachelor level students, all EFL learners, who attended the third year of Pedagogical Faculty in Sarajevo. The project was envisaged to introduce some novelties into our classes through the implementation of new technology. The aim was to increase the students’ motivation and self-confidence, foster their autonomous learning and enhance their abilities to use English more effectively in a meaningful context. This paper presents all relevant stages of the project implementation, starting from the background information about the learners, the setting, the course goals and the students’ needs, then describing the issues that started the project and the initial solutions, elaborating on the response and changes made, and concluding with reflections about the project and suggestions resulting from it.
