Have you been lured into using technology that promises a fast track to EL language skills?Let’s face it:almost every tech tool makes promises that can be hard to deliver for every kind of learner.In this session, we will introduce you to a rubric that evaluates tech tools in terms of how they meet the needs of our fastest growing population, English Language learners.This rubric, which is based on the EEE model and the WIDA Ten Essential Actions for Academic Language Success, evaluates Instructional Technology in the context of an ESOL lesson.Join us as we analyze a technology lesson to determine whether the lesson and the tool meet the needs of EL learners.
