iTELL

The purpose of the iTELL initiative is to train teachers to use technology to implement best practices in the classroom that will enhance the learning experience of ELL students. Many teachers have access to remarkable technological tools but have not had adequate access to professional development opportunities in order to make purposeful decisions in using that technology to enhance instruction.

 
Content Dictionaries, Image Banks and Digital Narratives are specific strategies that are taught during the iTELL training. Some samples created by participants are hosted on this site for other teachers to preview. Lessons integrating technology with the focus of enhancing skills for English Language Learners are featured as well.
