guidelines for using technology for ells
Guidelines for using Technology for ELLs

ELLs need to be active users of technology to access, evaluate, organize, synthesize and disseminate information.

ELLs need to use technology that encourages and assists them in interacting with native speakers in both instructional and social contexts.

One way to understand limitations of any commercially available piece of software is to try to identify which language domains (listening, speaking, listening, writing) it is targeting, and whether it relies on language learning or language acquisition activities.

Computer software should never be used as the primary source for the learning of a second language.

An understanding of the types of supports (sensory, graphic, and interactive) needed by ELLs at different levels of language proficiency can be used to match the learner to the appropriate technology [see page 191 for more information]
