ABSTRACT
College English teachers should vigorously promote the integration of the latest information technology and curriculum teaching. The application of modern information technology to college English teaching has not only modernized, diversified and facilitated the teaching methods, but also changed the teaching concepts, teaching contents and teaching methods. The ultimate goal of integration is to promote the development of students’ informationized learning ability. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to investigate college English teachers’ development of students’ informationized learning ability in the era of big data, and explore a motivation system that motivates teachers to develop students’ informationized learning ability. A questionnaire survey was conducted in three universities with different degrees of informationization. It is found that the universities do not make enough investments to accommodate the future development needs of smart education; the teachers show weak ability to use the software, do not master the use of software and fail to implement the design, development and the nation has not issued institutional policies and offered enough time and opportunities for teachers’ training. It is advised that the development of teachers’ informationized teaching ability is to strike a balance between promoting the development of teachers’ teaching ability and enhancing the development of students’ learning ability; China should make dynamic adjustments to the assessment and monitoring system of teachers’ informationized teaching ability and China should keep pace with the times in terms of investment in education teaching cause, and gradually improve its policy supports and incentives.
