Abstract

Prior to developing an appropriate technology model of communicative course design, key terms and important issues in the appropriate technology literature are identified and defined. The paper (a) provides a rationale for considering ESP in terms of appropriate technology, (b) surveys the philosophical and intellectual underpinnings of the appropriate technology movement, (c) defines key terms and clarifies them with language teaching examples, and (d) briefly considers some objections to the notion of appropriate technology.
