Abstract

The current study examined possible creative and innovative models of English Language Teaching (ELT) in response to Industrial Revolution 4.0 in which things are all digitized and integrated into one well-managed Learning Management Systems (LMS). Historical perspectives of the digital era were revisited in order to arrive at the most suitable teaching methods, strategies and assessments. Further highlighted in the core findings were issues related to digitalization of teaching materials, online mode of learning (e-learning and blended learning), types of language learning assessments in support of the cyber-learning management, characterized as paperless, minimal face-to-face teacher-student interaction and more independent learning. With the abundant open access to learning resources, the current study also discussed learning strategies to maximize the use of IT-based learning technology. Developments of literacy concepts were also touched upon to predict the future demands for competencies to counteract the future challenges that are not at all easy unless things have been prepared for such a haunting future. The study concludes that mapping opportunities and strengths to minimalize weaknesses and threats are things we cannot miss to undertake.
