Technology has been widely used in the education field, especially for teaching language. Many teachers and students believe in the advantages of technology to enhance language learning. There have been many studies investigating the use of technology in secondary language classrooms. Some studies approve that technology can be applied to increase students' language competence. This paper comprehensively analyzed the use of technology for English language teaching in the secondary level based on empirical studies. Fifty-seven selected articles from reputable journals and publishers were reviewed to identify the trends in technology use, types and purposes of technology use, and challenges and solutions encountered in the implementation of technology in ELT secondary levels are scrutinized in this study. Results have indicated that the study on technology use in ELT secondary level is consistently growing over the time, but future studies need to conduct more in qualitative or mixed-method research and there is also an urgency to examine the effectiveness of technology in listening, speaking, and reading skills. To sum up, the need to emphasize on the integration of technology,pedagogy, and language content in proper ways should be taken into account in order to obtain more meaningful future studies. Some potential topics for future research are discussed further in this study.
