Abstract

With the development of audio-visual education researches, researchers and educators have revealed advantages of applying technologies for educational purposes. Digital applications and tools are also developed to play positive roles in classrooms. Nonetheless, there are still obstacles impeding the further development of educational technologies. This paper tries to discuss three common concerns by reviewing previous researches and articles, which are: 1) the lack of qualified teachers mastering both teaching and computer skills, 2) students’ less developed digital literacy in their early stages, 3) a long-lasting problem of extremely large class size. This article also tends to provide solutions of the three common accepted obstacles, aiming at the students’ early digital literacy development, trainings about education technology on in-service teachers, policies on solving the large class size problem and how could introductions of educational technologies be carried out during that process.
