INTEGRATING ICT IN ENGLISH LANGUAGE TEACHING AND LEARNING IN INDONESIA

Tuti Hidayati

Abstract


Indonesian ELT is complex for numerous
reasons, and the level of students‟ outcome has been
regarded unsatisfactory by a number of researchers and
academics. This paper considers ICT as one of possible
alternatives to deal with the complexity of Indonesian
ELT and to improve its outcomes. It widely explores
ICT integration in English LTL, especially on how ICT
has been used in this field. It further investigates the
benefits and challenges of integrating ICT in LTL. The
paper argues that the integration of ICT is promising for
changing and improving the effectiveness of the current
Indonesian ELT condition when it is carried out in line
with the effective LTL principles. The integration of ICT
will enable teachers to vary teaching and learning
activities, to gradually change the teaching style to be
more student-centred, to train students to have more
active role in learning, and to access a huge range of
authentic learning materials. The paper also
acknowledges the contraints that will emerge in an
effort of integrating ICT in Indonesian English LTL.
Hence, some recommedations for action are proposed at
the end.

Keywords: English LTL, Indonesian ELT, ICT, benefit,
