Abstract

In recent years, technology has become increasingly important and has had a significant influence on education. It has played an important role in many disciplines, including English language teaching and learning. The application of technology in English language education is also a widely researched subject in all countries around the world including ASEAN. This study aims to identify research articles on technology in English language teaching and learning in ASEAN countries published between 2012 and 2021. Data consisted of 298 research articles retrieved from the Scopus database which were analyzed by using content analysis. The articles were examined according to three categories: (1) the number of research articles published in ASEAN countries, (2) English language skills or areas that these articles focused on, and (3) types of technology used and their effectiveness in English language teaching and learning. The research found 298 such articles published in ASEAN countries. The most common research area was perceptions of technology in language learning. Most of the studies reported positive effects of technology on students’ language skills, motivation, engagement, and autonomy. Such knowledge will provide an overview of current research as well as insights for future research directions and development in the use of technology in English language education.
