My students are the most talented, the most capable students out there. They have the knowledge of other languages and cultures. Together, we are working hard on overcoming language barriers to create not simply functioning, but successful members of American society. As a former English as a new language learner myself, I was taught to look at my background as a mine of meaningful knowledge and skills, that I can use to enrich the lives of people around me. I tirelessly work to create the same attitude in my English language learners.
In my English as a New Language class my students use technology to access knowledge in a new to them language. Luckily, there is a wealth of digital resources they can use to speed up the process of learning, by overcoming language barriers.
Sony MDR-ZX110 Noise Cancelling headphones will let my students to work on assignments with audio recordings appropriate to their own language development levels while being in the same room.
Technology serves students by empowering them, and I want to empower my English language learners. With new over-the-ear headphones, students can work individually or in small groups with immersive reading apps, listening to authentic English pronunciation.
