'The Internet and ELT' by David Eastment - second edition out now
The Internet and ELT is a short and clear guide to the practical state of the art. Teachers and managers alike will appreciate David Eastment's well informed and sober assessment what is now available and how it can be used to best advantage in practical teaching contexts. This book is based on a report commissioned by the British Council's English 2000 project in 1996, and a revision of that report carried out in 1998. It can be ordered through bookshops or, in case of difficulty, from the English Book Centre in Oxford: http://www.ebcoxford.co.uk
