Empowering ELLs & their Parents: Bridging the Digital/Language Divide via Technology

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The cell phone is the most quickly adopted consumer technology in the history of the world. According to new research from the Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project, 61 percent of Americans own a smartphone while 91 percent of the adult population owning some sort of mobile phone.
 
Also, using the Internet is becoming a necessity across more and more facets of life. It’s used to complete homework, search for and apply for jobs, connect with family and friends. Yet, nearly one-third of U.S. households (32 percent) lack broadband service. Teachers of the lowest income students are more than twice as likely as teachers of the highest income students (56% v. 21%) to say that students’ lack of access to digital technologies is a “major challenge” to incorporating more digital tools into their teaching.
 
In this interactive hands-on workshop, participants will leave with research-driven strategies and digital tools that empower ELLs and their parents. Follow us on Twitter @CAellchat & @tovaralms
