Social media and ICTs are being used by language learners for personal pursuing of goals and interests outside the realms of school. Our language learners have daily access to information and communication technologies (ICTs) that push their critical thinking and problem-solving skills to new heights. However, many teachers do not have a foundation in digital pedagogy to support learners, which means our learners are navigating blindly in a vast digital world. Through the work of A. A. Milnes, we can gather insight into effective education technology integration and become better guides for our students.
