Here’s One Relatively Useless Report On Using Tech With English Language Learners

| 0 comments

Technology-Driven Innovations for Teaching English Learners” is a relatively useless report from what is described as a “conservative think tank” — and it shows.

It highlights a handful of for-profit software companies, the Rocketship Charter School Network’s use of daily two-hour computer labs (which they announced last month they would no longer have), Voki (which is a nice tool, but not one many ELL teachers would call a key one) and the work of the Montgomery County public schools (which was the most interesting of the bunch, but still minimally descriptive).

Jeez, with everything else out there, and everybody else who is using tech with English Language Learners, it’s unfortunate they let their political agenda drive the report.
