Abstract: This article will discuss the use and application of multimedia technologies in the Japanese classroom, both at a high school level and at an undergraduate university level. With reference to English language teaching and applied English language courses, the effect of using multimedia in the classroom on students' learning experience and attention rates will be discussed. Also research into teacher's opinions on the adoption of new technologies will be compared with definitions of traditional teaching methods. Correspondingly, with the adoption of new technologies in the classroom being common place in universities and increasingly in high schools, what implications will this have on teachers required skillsets and access to effective training and employment. The empirical research in this article has been carried out at a number of public and private universities across the Kanto region. Although the participants are anonymous, a mix of native English speakers and Japanese nationals took part in the questionnaire. (*see appendix 1.1)
