Engage your ELL students through technology!

When it comes to technology integration, don’t overlook the needs of your ELL students.  Introduce project-based learning into your classroom and utilize strategies to engage your ELL students and bridge the growing divide between technology and the ELL students that need it to thrive. Connected Educator John Spencer shows ELL educators how to combine technology with teaching in this easy-to-use guide to blended learning.  Get ready to:

  • Blend innovative technology with project-based learning
  • Strengthen your students’ English language skills
  • Engage your students through the intentional integration of digital tools

The Corwin Connected Educators series is your key to unlocking the greatest resource available to all educators: other educators. Being a Connected Educator is more than a set of actions: it’s a belief in the potential of technology to fuel lifelong learning.

"John Spencer is the kind of teacher that I wish my own kids had and that all students deserve. This book shows clearly and practically how technology can be used to give all students greater choice and a more powerful voice. This book inspired me to rethink my own approach and what I'm planning to do in my classroom tomorrow."
Philip Cummings, 6th Grade Teacher

"Spencer provides a clear framework for teachers to help students improve their language skills. A teacher can pick this book up and be provided with specific ideas and techniques which can be implemented in a classroom immediately."

I anticipated this book to have more practical resource suggestions for which digital tools would be useful for language acquisition students at the college level. Unfortunately, it did not, so it was not very useful for my purposes.
