Tech Tools for Language Learners (Microsoft)
As teachers, we need to provide effective instructional support for the increasing number of multilingual learners in our classrooms. Free edtech tools used in concert with best-practice language acquisition strategies can increase student achievement while providing an engaging, accessible, and supportive learning environment. In this session, we’ll explore tech tools and activities that foster independent learning and facilitate vocabulary building, writing, comprehension, reading fluency, and access to curricular content. Join us to learn how to integrate technology to effectively serve linguistically diverse learners.
As a result of this session, teachers will:
1. Identify language acquisition strategies that support multilingual learners in your classroom;
2. Explore tech tools that foster independent learning; and
3. Plan for the use of these strategies to support multilingual learners.
