My Students

The students from Puerto Rico in my class are adjusting well and trying hard, there is a language gap that causes frustration for them.

High-quality early education can help children develop critical skills like social-emotional regulation and communication, which promote lifelong learning, technology will help the English Language learners have this experience in a foreign classroom.

In post-disaster settings, returning to school can represent a return to order and familiarity. The re-establishment of a school setting is one of the practices that is most highly endorsed by educational agency leaders with disaster experience.

My Project

Software, online tools, and other technologies help students hone basic language skills they can later apply in authentic social settings. Students spend most of their day listening and not interacting with the foreign language as much. But technology mixes things up, captures students' attention, and engages them in a way traditional classroom instruction doesn't.

Educators strongly recommend individual computer programs and other technologies because they say they accelerate the acquisition of phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and reading-comprehension skills and other language building blocks in English Language Learners.

The key is to use technologies that allow learners to focus in on text and to engage with real-life audiences and issues. The biggest problem related to English-language learning is not so much developing oral-conversation skills, but gaining academic written-language skills. One of the things that has been shown is that when students talk about things in online discussions, they use more complicated vocabulary, because it is easier to see what's been written by others and incorporate it into their own writing.

Basic Internet, word processing, and presentation technologies can facilitate authentic connections to the world
