    Several decades ago, the use of technology in language classrooms attracted only a small number of language teachers / researchers and curriculum / material developers. However, with the rapid growth of computer ap¬plications, communications technologies and open-access information available on the Internet, the role of technology in language instruction has now become an important issue confronting large numbers of language specialists throughout the world. Thousands of language educators have embraced technology as their useful instructional tool. Many believe that technology can be used as a catalyst for second language development. The major questions one needs to ask are these: (1) does technology really aid language teaching and/or learning process?; and (2) is there any connection between a theoretically-based understanding of the language learning process and the implementation of technology-based materials?. To answer these questions, in this presentation, I discuss the intersection between technology and second language acquisition (SLA) that is how the principles of Instructed SLA proposed by Ellis (2008) can be useful in the development and evaluation of technology-related materials.
