Title : Developing the ability to use technology in education for pre-service English teachers in Vietnam: Why ineffective?
Type : Virtual presentation
Category : Individual session
Abstract :

With the fast development of technology, the application of technology in education is becoming increasingly important. In English Teacher Competency Framework (ETCF) provided by Vietnamese Ministry of Education and Training, the ability to use technology in education is one important quality an English teacher must possess. As revealed from previous studies, English teachers’ ability to apply technology in education is weak as they are not provided sufficient chances to approach technology in education in their pre-service teacher education programs. The paper reports on part of a findings of a case study conducted in a Public University (a pseudonym) in Vietnam. The research adopted the qualitative approach with the in-depth interview as the instrument. Three experienced lecturers who also involved in designing the program and three student teachers were invited for the study. The research revealed that the program was not effective in educating student teachers how to use technology in teaching. Reasons for such inefficiency were the separation of “Technology in education” course from other methodological courses and the implementation of teaching practicum. Integrating technology in the curriculum and a stronger link between theories and practice in teaching practicum are suggested for developing students’ ability to apply technology in education.
