The 21st century invites a perhaps begrudging acceptance of the role that technology plays in almost every aspect of daily living. Nevertheless, when it comes to incorporating it into language classes, even the most accepting and forward-thinking teachers may not be able to make the right choices all the time. Indeed, every language teacher could benefit from asking the following pertinent questions (Berk, 2010): How do you decide which technology to use in your classroom?; What criteria, if any, do you use to make an informed choice of technological tools?; Are these criteria related to the learners’ features, pedagogy, and learning outcomes? After reflecting on these questions, the next step should be to examine the research that has so far been conducted on the use of technology by Generation Y learners.
