Meeting the Adult ELL Challenge


Screen Shot 2014-05-09 at 1.33.20 PMAccording to U.S. Census information, an estimated 25 million people in the United States do not speak English well or at all. For educators, engaging this population of non-English speakers requires a different set of services, including adult education programs. Unfortunately, such programs suffer when districts face resource constraints.  In the Using Technology for Language Instruction community’s May webinar, Tiffaney Barnes of Orange County Public Schools (OCPS) in Central Florida shared how they used technology-based learning to help improve learner outcomes for beginning and intermediate adult ELLs. Tiffaney explained how OCPS extends English Language Learning beyond the classroom, increases engagement and participation by complementing classroom instruction, and improves CASAS scores with the help of an adult-engaging technology solution.  View the webinar to learn how to meet the adult ELL challenge at your school or district.

Using Technology for Language Instruction is an online community where educators can collaborate on how to prepare students to succeed as global citizens and to expand their horizons. Our PLC provides a place to explore all aspects of using technology to improve both world language learning and English language learning of English Language Learners (ELLs).  This program is sponsored by Rosetta Stone.
