Abstract


One of the major challenges in ESL and EFL classrooms is addressing students who are hesitant to participate in class, either due to uncertainties that they may have about the subject matter, or worries of being ridiculed in front of their peers. Such fears may severly handicap these L2 learners and cause frustration with not only themselves, but also their instructors as well. This workshop will introduce ways to help alleviate this reticence among students through CALL and app technology, such as Socrative and Google Documents.
