Abstract [en]

The tools that we have developed, namely the Internet, online games, and social networks, have drastically changed the world we live in. Furthermore, after years of studies, discussions and research, it has been concluded that English as a Second Language study is an important tool for the mediation and proliferation of information across the globe. The aim of this study is to combine the models of Sociocultural Theory, Interaction Hypothesis and Connectivism to provide insight about the use of ‘new media’ by English as a Second Language (ESL) students and the potential of its use in the ESL classroom in Sweden. However, its applications can also be used in countries with second language curriculums similar to Sweden.
