English Learners (ELs) bring significant assets of language and culture to enrich their classrooms and schools, and their backgrounds and experiences inform different educational technology needs. 

Objectives:

  • Learn how the selection of educational technology can best meet the needs of ELs as they learn academic content and at the same time make gains in reaching English proficiency.  

 

  • Explore various free forms of technology that can engage and motivate students while at the same time provide additional linguistic supports. 

 

  • Digital learning resources for beginning ELs will be shared to offer first language scaffolds as students transition to learning in English.
