Aprender a aprender en la era digital: Tecnopedagogía crítica para la enseñanza del español LE/L2 lays out a pathway for implementing learning technologies in the teaching practices of L2 Spanish from a critical perspective.

Written entirely in Spanish, the book provides a comprehensive, state-of-the-art account that empowers readers to leverage learning technologies to promote second language learner autonomy. The book covers a breadth of innovative topics in the teaching of Spanish via and with technology, such as emerging pedagogies, autonomous and participatory learning, learner agency and identity, teacher development, and post-communicative curriculum design.

Key features:

  • a novel and unique approach combining the latest research on learning autonomy and instructional technologies in language learning;
  • an emphasis on the connections between theory and practice, with concrete suggestions for using technology in the classroom;
  • an extensive selection of curricular and pedagogical tools that can be easily adapted to various teaching and learning environments and needs;
  • a broad selection of bibliographical references for further readings and research;
  • a bilingual glossary of key techno-pedagogical terms;
  • a catalogue with over 250 tools for second language learning and teaching, with contextualized examples of their practical application;
  • a comprehensive eResource with a wealth of additional materials, including access to a database of technological tools and best practices in teaching Spanish with technology.
