MultiBrief: Effectively incorporating technology with English learners - 2 views

  • Perhaps the first consideration is the instructional purpose of the lesson, and how the technology will enhance that purpose or help students to achieve the goals and objectives of the lesson.
  • Technology, as mentioned earlier, has the power to increase student knowledge and skills in various content areas. Yet another consideration that must be taken into account when working with English learners is how the technology is increasing academic language knowledge and skills.

    It is critical, then, that teachers take into account not only the content goals and objectives for the lesson, but also the language goals and objectives as well as the linguistic demand of the tasks students will need to accomplish in the classroom.

  • English learners need additional instructional supports or scaffolds, including providing students with necessary background knowledge that other students may possess, using graphic organizers, pictures/visuals, demonstrations and realia, and providing redundant information and differentiated instruction based on students' language proficiency level.

    When researching various technology tools, it is critical that we investigate how the tool addresses these principles.

  • The use of technology in the classroom is quickly becoming not only commonplace, but also essential for helping students gain the 21st-century skills they will need to be successful in the future.
  • when implementing technology in the classroom, an important component of instruction is to teach students how to use technology effectively and responsibly. Students may need guidance and instruction on how to use technology appropriately given the task and learning at hand, how to avoid distractions with technology, and how to effectively navigate the digital world.

News in Levels: How to Use - For Teachers - 7 views

  •  
    This page offer tips on using leveled news and other stories, such as:

    - having students take turns reading (aloud to one another) and translating (interpreting) the whole text (aloud to one another), sentence by sentence (Reading, item 2, 2013.06.04); and
    - playing the media over and over during a subsequent lesson, until every student understands (Reading, item 6, 2013.06.04).

    It doesn't explain the leveling system.

    To create a time line
  •  
    I've found this tool to create timelines. I haven't give it a try yet but I think it can be promising, especially when learning tenses. Or maybe, at the beginning of the year, make students do a timeline with the objectives they would like to reach until the end of the year. Just ideas. Hope you find it useful,
