Designed for teachers of English Language Learners, Empower English Language Learners With Tools From the Web demonstrates how to use the powerful tools of Web 2.0 to motivate students and increase student learning.

Focusing largely on Web 2.0 tools such as wikis, social networking spaces, and blogs, Lori Langer de Ramirez grounds her discussion in the framework of second language acquisition theory, constructivist learning theory, and the acquisition of 21st century skills. The book explains how technology tools can support learning goals while meeting TESOL standards and offers clear examples of how teachers can integrate these technologies into the classroom.

This research-based guide is filled with samples of student work, helpful strategies, and sample activities, projects, and lessons to help primary and secondary ELL teachers maximize technology with ELL students, not only for language, but also for improvement in other subjects and acquisition of 21st century skills.

"This timely, user-friendly book provides inservice and preservice ESL teachers with the background and tools needed to implement Web 2.0 technologies in their classes today. The ELLs in these classrooms will benefit from learning English (and content) through rich and motivating technologies such as blogs, wikis, podcasts, visual media, social networking, and Second Life. Designed for teachers who need some guidance in using technology as a teaching tool, this handbook is very easy to follow and provides step-by-step instructions for even the most inexperienced `digital (non)natives'!" -- Holly Hansen-Thomas, Assistant Professor of Bilingual and ESL Education
"An excellent overview of the potential of Web 2.0 for ESL and other language teachers or administrators who are new to using Web tools. This book offers concrete suggestions, addresses concerns about using certain tools with younger learners, and provides alternatives for the K-12 setting when appropriate. If you want a resource that will help you determine which of the powerful Web 2.0 tools are best for your setting, then this book is for you!" -- Elizabeth Scaduto, ESL Director
"This book provides great examples for teachers looking to enhance their practice through technology. These strategies can help not only English language learners, but ALL students!" -- Jacie Maslyk, Elementary School Principal
"Teachers and students are increasingly separated by a technological divide. This quick read will bridge that divide. Nineteenth-century schools cannot effectively prepare 21st-century students. After this quick read, teachers will be ready to jump into Web 2.0 technology with skills every student will envy." -- Denise Lewis Harlos, Educational Program Development
"I thought the examples and stories that are presented throughout the text were great. Showing how people have used these technologies successfully with ELL students is very motivating and encouraging for the reader." -- Faith Chaney Grant, ELL Teacher
"Fills a niche for technology rich communities striving to meet the instructional and social needs of ELL students." -- Library Media Connection Magazine
