Computer displaying an English Now! media guide

Technology in English Now! is founded on the principle that it is primarily a tool to help the teacher
deliver instruction. This principle is operationalized through: (a) professional development, and (b) classroom instruction and assessment.

I. Professional Development Technology

A. Online Training for English Now! AB and C

Online training comprises step-by-step guides for instructing students in English Now! AB and C. Each lesson type is demonstrated on video by a teacher and students. The online training, if followed sufficiently by the teacher, provides what is necessary for immediate and effective classroom implementation of the program.

B. Quick Start DVDs for English Now! AB and C

A Quick Start DVD is included in each English Now! AB and C Kit. This is for teachers who may not have access to the online training described above. The DVDs have video demonstrations of specific lesson types.

C. Presentation/Media Guide CD-ROMs

The English Now! C, Prep, D, and E units all come with Presentation/Media Guide CD ROMs used during instruction, but also valuable as prep-time tools. These CD-ROMs contain lesson content and procedures, enabling the teacher to teach reliable content without much training and preparation.
