Nowadays, many teachers try to use digital materials to supplement language materials. However, ready-made digital materials do not always suit students’ needs nor meet teachers’ aims. In this talk, I will explore ways of creating digital materials for language learning in meaningful and creative ways by presenting the contextual and pedagogical realisation of the materials, the principles behind the writing process and by sharing activity samples as part of technology-enhanced lesson plans.
