    There are two sides which force teachers to exploit technology in their teaching activities. The technological advancement and students’ ICT literacy are demanding teachers to utilize technology for their English classes. Some studies found that many teachers still have not maximized the use of technology for their teaching activities yet. Meanwhile, students expect their English learning integrated with technology. However, it was found that teachers have eagerness to implement information and communication technology to their classes. Moreover, it was also found in some studies that technology can enhance students’ learning achievement and motivation which are very important to increase student’ English learning progress. Technology keeps developing its tools for education especially English. There are many technology tools which can be utilized, such as: computer, internet, interactive whiteboard, online dictionary, etc. However, it is not easy to have teachers implement technology to their classes.

This paper is intended to present some technological tools which can be employed by teachers of English in increasing their students’ English proficiency.
