Description This paper offers an insight into how information communication technology (ICT) is integrated into EFL teaching in school classes. By means of inductive content analysis of online versions of scientific journals on EFL and ICT published in from 2010 to 2016, I attempt to understand the underlying associations between the use of individual ICT and class activities, including teacher roles. In the end, I offer an interpretation as to which ways the processes of ICT integration in EFL helps enhancing learning processes. The main finding, based on research viewpoints, was that ICT in an EFL class situation is associated with innovative changes in teaching-learning processes, as the use of ICT accelerates class dynamism and teacher roles.
