Teachers play a critical part in language learning, even in the age of increasingly accessible and innovative technology. In today’s interview, Jason and I talk about the shifting role of teachers in the digital and mobile age. Far from being replaced or marginalized by technology, we argue that teachers still play an essential role in language learning. But we propose a new role for teachers: to transform from lecturers to content curators, facilitators and coaches in the classroom.
