This article presents a review of the integration of ICT in language teaching. This text is structured into three sections which promote the educational use of new technologies as cognitive tools, in other words expand the functions of cognitive tools, enhance and reorganize the capabilities of students not as a mere container or transmitter of information. In addition, this article presents an analysis of educational software from the pedagogical approach, focusing on those that promote reflexive learning. Finally, three proposals are discussed for the integrating of ICT for teaching languages through simulators, WebQuest and Wikis.
