Abstract

Developing foreign language skills as well as information communication skills belong among the key competences defined by the EU. We do realize that the current generations are digital natives and they live in the world that is different than was ours. Even though we are ready to use technologies to simplify our life, to make some processes more efficient, our children use them naturally. The article presents information gained in the research realized among elementary school teachers who teach 6-7 years old children. The focus group consisted of the teachers who use internet to support their teaching and their pupils use the net for their home preparation and practice.
