Designed to support equitable access to engaging and enriching digital-age education opportunities for English learners, this book includes
- Research-informed and evidence-based technology integration models and instructional strategies
- Sample lesson ideas, including learning targets for activating students’ prior knowledge while promoting engagement and collaboration
- Tips for fostering collaborative practices with colleagues
- Vignettes from educators incorporating technology in creative ways
- Targeted questions to facilitate discussions about English language development methodology
Complete with supplementary tools and resources, this guide provides all of the methodology resources needed to bridge the digital divide and promote learning success for all students.
