During the last years, there has been a rising awareness of the importance of
Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in the field of education. With
the shift to Web 2.0 and the amazingly growing number of Web tools including
blogs, wikis, social networks, podcasts, audio and video tools, interactive
materials, learning management systems, etc., teachers and educators are facing
great challenges to efficiently adapt themselves to this digital boom and to
adequately respond to the growing demands of digital natives' needs.
Learners and teachers are two key elements at the heart of the theme of 'MATE
6th ICT4ELT Conference'. The focus in using ICT in education in the 21st century
will certainly not be on the use of digital tools as an objective, but on the
promotion of quality and excellence in the teaching and learning process.
