Capturing Technology For English Language Learners

My students need Chromebooks and a projector to help them enhance their language skills.

My Students

I feel so fortunate to be arounds all the diverse backgrounds that represent the makeup of my classroom. My students come from Columbia, Guatemala. Haiti, Brazil, Dominican Republic, Sudan, and Somalia. Most of them come with many challenges. Their parents are struggling to find housing, jobs, and transportation. They are facing these challenges with the added challenge of not speaking English at a fluent level.

The students feel so fortunate to be in the United States and come with such enthusiasm for learning.

I see the struggles they face and I always try and think of ways to keep them progressing in academics and learning English. Their positive attitudes will bring them far in life. They just need a little help along the way.

My Project

The access to the technology will make a remarkable difference in my classroom of English language learners. Many of my students are at the beginning levels of English proficiency. Having Chromebooks and an InFocus projector will help develop their English language.

My students will have Google translate at their fingertips to help them translate vocabulary or directions to begin assignments.

They will also be able to use Google classroom that provides pictures and translations for difficult vocabulary. Also, there are many wonderful online learning sites that they can use. These sites help foster language skills, literacy, math skills, and written language. Some of these sites include Raz Kids, Ten Marks, Vocabulary.com, Read Theory, and Extra Math. My students have very limited access to these sites. Having this technology will make some incredible changes to the learning and teaching in my classroom.
