- We can order this
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.
