The Use of Technology to Enhance English Language Learning

Teaching English Language Learners Through Technology

One of the most challenging aspects for educators of English language learners ELLs is accurately assessing language development over time -- oral language, in particular. Due to the conversational nature of language, it can be incredibly difficult to assess oral language while simultaneously engaging in conversation, not to mention recording the data as you go. While the speaking and listening domains can be the hardest to objectively assess over time, reading and writing shouldn't be overlooked. A few savvy strategies coupled with technology integration can enhance not only English language learning within the four domains listening, speaking, reading, and writing of ELD, but your assessment of language development over time as well. When you're facing the teacher time crunch, the in-flipped classroom can be your best friend. A traditional flipped classroom has students watch lessons at home and come back to school for practice. Unfortunately, not all of our ELLs have the resources at home to make this model work.
