My students need access to technology. There are so many technological applications that can assist with learning another language that would a beneficial addition to their education.
My students are very inquisitive for five and six year old. I am a dual language teacher that teaches children from different cultures, ethnicity, socioeconomic backgrounds who are eager to build their bilingual, problem solving, and critical thinking skills.
According to The Fred Rodgers Center: Dual language learners are the fastest growing segment of the population in the United States, currently representing about 25 percent of children under age 6.
There are many activities that will have children memorize random words and these activities include context that are useless tools for early learning. This why it is so important to teach our students to think outside of the flashcard box. These tablets will provide my Kindergartners with the opportunity to do this such thing.
Tablets are a necessity with this generation of students. These tablets will assist my students in gaining hands on experience with the language that they are learning. These tables will assist in instruction that will prepare students to become bilingual and biliterate and promote high academic achievement in two languages. Students will be able to hear fluent native speakers to understand how to correctly say and spell words that are not native to them. These program will assist in building knowledge in sentence structure, vocabulary, sight words, and much more.
Hearing familiar words is very effective in bridging a child’s developing understanding of content in English and Spanish when learning the non-dominant language .
As the diversity of languages grows, Spanish and English speaking families are increasingly requesting more bilingual programs so that their children will be competitive in a global economy.
We as teachers are faced with growing burden to find culturally and linguistically appropriate resources and activities to help support dual languages. Technology can open up a world of resources for early childhood programs and families. These tablets would be a great asset to my students learning.
