Event description

Description

ACOE invites teachers, administrators, ELL Specialists/Coordinators and others to the ELL Tech Carnival this Thursday Nov. 15th 2018.

In this full day event, participants will explore various tools and platforms to address the language needs of English Language Learners working at all proficiency and grade levels. This workshop will be hands on and follow a playground format, where attendees decide what tools to try and what to experiment with at their own pace, in collaborative groups or individually as needed.

We will also cover strategies for integrating these tools into instructional settings and how to use tools and apps to increase access to the materials students are already expected to use. The majority of the technology options presented will be web-based and will be either free, or freemium, although honorable mentions will be made to iPad apps and high quality paid options. Many of the strategies and tools are also designed to support the learning of any student, not just ELLs.

We will offer:

  • Vocabulary building sites and apps
  • Grammar tools
  • Google Chrome extensions and apps
  • Fluency and comprehension apps and sites
  • Finding leveled texts
  • Games for building language
  • Strategies for using video and audio tools
  • Using google tools for ELL progress
  • more!

Please bring a laptop (iPads are optional, to explore apps). We will provide iPads and chromebooks for those who request them prior to the session.

Workshop delivered by Francisco Nieto, EdTech Program Manager at ACOE.

Breakfast and Lunch provided. Free parking onsite.
