Tech-savvy Teaching: Keeping Up with the Latest Technologies

As I concluded my modern technology class, I stressed the importance of staying up-to-date with the latest advancements in the field of language learning and technology . Then a student asked :

"Where do I find references to keep up-to-date with technology?"

Her question was an eye opener to me as I had always thought that staying current with technology was a given in today's world. But then I realized that not everyone knew where to start when it came to finding reliable sources of information.

So, I decided to put together a list of the most interesting and informative sources I knew of.

Here is a list of websites, blogs and academic Journal that will keep you up to date in terms of language teaching and Technology:
