Is technology a silver bullet for language teaching and learning? "There is no longer a four-walled classroom," says Dr Cecilia Goria, of Nottingham University's Language Centre. "Teaching and learning now extends beyond that." Technological innovations have changed language learning radically from the old-fashioned image of pupils learning lists of verbs out of textbooks. Although language teaching has a long history of using tech, dating back to the 1960s, recent developments such as social networking and easy-to-use video cameras have removed many of the limitations.

Over a decade ago, the landscape was quite different when learning technology was just beginning to make an impact. Since then, technologies such as VLEs have become mainstream and technology use has evolved with good access to digital resources on and off campus, offering more flexibility.
5 Steps to Behavioral Marketing Success As I mentioned in my recent post, “Behavioral Marketing: What It Is and Why It’s So Exciting,” many marketers have taken note of behavioral marketing and its power to connect with customers and prospects on an individual level, yielding unprecedented “return on relationship.” Still, the concept of building out a fluid communication system that twists and turns with each contact action can seem daunting to marketers just trying to get the next email out the door.

What is Behavioral Marketing? Explore the Strategy of Behavioral Marketing As you search through your favorite web pages, your eyes briefly drift to the side of a webpage. You suddenly notice the ads that have been sitting there all along -- ads that actually seem interesting to you for once.

This allows for a deeper level of ad customization, giving businesses insight into the habits and desires of consumers. Targeted advertisments are more likely to seem interesting to users, and take into account their individual preferences to display relevant content.
