Eight experienced Chinese language teachers met for 12 roundtable sessions and used a web forum as a supplement to discuss the role of information and communications technologies (ICT) in Chinese language instruction. They proposed a list of instructional activities that may be carried out more effectively with the help of ICT. The activities are presented under three categories: reading instruction, writing instruction, and general teaching tasks. The teachers also pointed out the necessity for a dedicated Chinese language teachers' web site and specified the essential features for it. Another two issues discussed by the teachers concern provision of computing facilities and ICT training that they expect from the school administration.
