Theories Applied to Multimedia Network Foreign Language Teaching

Yanping XIA, Sheng TAO


The widespread application of network information and multimedia technology in teaching brings great changes to foreign language teaching environment and teaching objectives. The traditional teacher-centered teaching mode changes into the learner-centered one. Modern teaching theories provide powerful theoretical support for foreign language teaching in the context of multimedia network information. This paper probes into constructivism theory, communicative teaching theory, input and output hypotheses which are applied in multimedia network foreign language teaching and their practical use in teaching.
