There is ample evidence that a shift towards more integration of web 2.0 in education is taking place. Surveys indicate that a growing number of schools in primary, secondary and higher education have access to web 2.0 tools, although how these tools they are used to technologically-enhance the language learning process is a question that needs to be addressed. Quite often discussion of integration of technology focuses on specific practices, rather than considering the importance for teachers to critically assess the potential that technology holds for them to improve and innovate the language learning process of their pupils in a way that adjusts to emergent understandings of knowledge construction. This chapter aims to open the debate on how language teaching approaches can really integrate technology and language learning as part of a continual social process of shared knowledge-building and communication and one which adapts to the needs of future generations.
