In the contexts of crowded ELT classrooms, compact syllabus and upgraded digital infrastructure in Vietnam, e-books and other online materials can mobilize different resources and contributions of various stakeholders related to English language education in the country. This presentation will focus on analyzing reality, challenges in English language teaching and learning in Vietnam today, and harnessing the need of ICT application to improve practices in ELT classrooms at schools. One of such improvements is using English textbooks with digital contents and methodology. In this paper, I will demonstrate how to use those digital textbooks issued by the Vietnam Educational Publishing House to illustrate the ways ICT application can help improve English language teaching and learning in diverse contexts. With such an ICT application in ELT classrooms, all of the stakeholders from teachers, learners and parents can participate in English language education in Vietnam as explicitly stated in Decision 2080 by the Vietnamese Government (2017).
