This book seeks to investigate a dialectical relationship of technology, intercultural communication, and foreign language learning. Research has shown that the development of information and communication technology should not be considered in isolation. Members in a community of practice typically think together using various types of media, regardless of whether they are located. Emerging technologies are not only seen as one of the effective means that enhance a better cross-cultural understanding, but also evidently foster language development by providing various tools and mediators for social interaction, communication, and collaboration. It is argued from the book that technology, cross-cultural communication, and language learning are related to each other in a dialectical manner, which promotes various opportunities for curriculum development and syllabus design in language education. The book ends with a series of sample lesson plans that integrate technology and culture into a foreign language syllabus. This book therefore aims at language teachers and teacher trainees who are looking for prospects of integrating technology into intercultural and language development.
