Resumen

Computers have had a significant presence in language teaching since the 1960s, while the obvious emerging development of “educational technology” can be established in the early 1980s. By then, this term began to obtain significant popularity, since instructional media started to get a wider impact on educational practices. Since then, terminology has shifted significantly, from the initial Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL) to Technology-Enhanced Language Learning (TELL), subtly considering the fact that present computers are transforming less obvious “on the surface” while, at same time, being completely necessary. Computers lead other kinds of technology, such as audio, video and the World Wide Web, so that the current focus is on the communication which is facilitated by the computer rather than the machine itself.
