Technology continues to shape English language learning. Online courses, self-directed language learning, and flipped or blended classrooms now fill the marketplace. This presentation will demonstrate how a teacher's role is influenced by these trends, and how a teacher can and should engage in the modern language learning experience. Teachers will be introduced to the author's definition of the language learning ecosystem, and will be invited to conceptualize how a teacher might engage in this model both as a learner and as an educator. The presentation will identify pitfalls in online language learning, and how educators may misunderstand the advantages present in the online community because of these pitfalls. Recommendations on how to engage in online learning systems will be given, as well as implications for educators and learners on the growing trend of self-directed language learning.
