Author(s): Rosy Yumnam
Abstract: This paper examines the impact of using Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the teaching and learning of English language in the North Eastern Region of India. ICT has opened up new avenues in the pedagogy of English Language Teaching (ELT). The role of teacher, the nature and context of learning as well as the function and relative importance of course content have all been challenged and redefined. The schools in these regions are by and large using traditional language teaching methods. The paper aims to make the teachers and learners aware of the use of ICT in teaching and learning English language. Through the questionnaires administered to both teachers and learners, the importance and challenges in the pedagogy of ELT using ICT will be identified and discussed.
