2. Implementing a 1:1 device program for students. Our world has fully embraced the digital transformation the pandemic sought onto us. It’s time our schools also join in on this and identify resources to create a 1:1 device program for students. This type of program has been shown to have many benefits in student learning and success as it allows students to gain control over how they learn and explain their knowledge. Also, students can use their devices across classes and from home or at school, which creates more consistency in their learning.
3. Providing ELLs with accommodations that will allow them to succeed. ELLs can benefit from edtech tools that are designed with their needs in mind. Edtech tools can provide support for students who are at all levels of acquiring the English language, from those being introduced to English for the first time to those who are proficient in conversational English, but require additional support because of the complexity of the language. For instance, tools that help with vocabulary attainment, reading and working with text, collecting and organizing information, and drafting and editing writing can be extremely beneficial.
4. Using data to set goals and target interventions where ELLs need them most. Access to dynamic student data is critical to identifying students who may need support. When teachers have a holistic picture of each student – including academic, behavioral, attendance, disciplinary data – they can better target appropriate resources and interventions. Additionally, multi-faceted and timeline student data also enables educators and parents to have informed conversations about students’ learning paths.
