Abstract

This paper describes different ways in which digital technology can be used for language learning. It then identifies some key trends connecting assessment and technology in language learning and higher education: the use of automated systems to enhance traditional assessment practices; the use of Web 2.0 tools to facilitate new assessment practices; and, the increase in new skills and content areas in language learning which are a consequence of the rise in the use of technology. These are especially important in the creation of collaborative digital projects. The paper concludes by pointing out the implications of these trends for pedagogy and changing teacher roles.
