As I shared a few months ago (see Beginning A New “Best” Series Of Interest To ELL Teachers), I’m beginning to create an updated series of “Best” lists for Beginning English Language Learners. They will ultimately replace the resources I have on my outdated website.
I’ve done quite a few so far, and you can find them all at All My Thematic “Best” Lists For Beginning ELLs – In One Place!
I’ve got several more to go, however, and here’s the latest one – on computers. This one is a little different from others, however. Several of my ELL students are very motivated to learn more about technology. And, though I have several other related “Best” lists, it’s been difficult for me to find sites that have computer-related tutorials in English that would be accessible to Beginning ELLs.
These are what I have found so far, but I would love to get additional recommendations from readers:
The audio support that the BBC’s Dance Mat Typing provides makes it the best way for ELLs to learn keyboarding.
Computer Literacy Lessons from MacMillan are dated, but are still useful and very accessible. You can also access them here.
ESOL Courses has some good basic resources.
Digital Learn has great resources, though they may be beyond the language reach of Beginning ELLs.
GCFLearnFree.org has wonderful videos but, again, they may not be accessible to Beginners.
In Pictures may be in the same boat.
