Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and collaboration skills are important both in 21st-century learning and ESL. A body of research shows that ESL learners can benefit from collaboration and technology to improve their oral and written production. 

 

Due to the novel coronavirus, most classrooms shifted to online teaching and teachers need support to adapt their teaching in an online platform. Through online collaboration, ESL teachers can promote both their students' development of 21st-century skills and second language learning.
