    • RESOURCES FOR ELL (ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNER) EDUCATORS T561 – Fall 2012 – Tomoko Matsukawa 1
    • Table of Contents  K-12 ELL education background 3 - 15  Relevant Web2.0/mobile tools 16 - 26  Resources for ELL educators 27 - 31  Reference 32 - 35 2
    • # of ELL learners continue to grow background  ELL population had continued to grow and is expected to grow even further  According to Consolidated State Performance Reports (CSPR), between 1997- 1998 to 2008-2009 the number of ELL in public schools (pre-K-12) increased from 3.5mn to 5.3mn. This is a 53% increase during a period in which general student population only grew by 8.5%.  According to National Education Association (NEA), ELL enrollment in US schools are expected to reach 10mn and, by 2025, approximately 25% of public school students will be ELL  Who are these ELL students? (by NEA)  Native born US citizens account for 76% of elementary school ELLs and 56% of secondary school ELLs. More than 50% of ELLs in public secondary school are second or third generation US citizens  2/3 of ELL come from low-income families and 3/4 are Spanish speaking.  There are achievement gaps in academic performance between ELLs and non- ELL students Source: (National Education Association, 2008) 3
    • Two types of English language skill  BICS (Basic Interpersonal Communication Skills)  Skills necessary for social interactions  Often easy to see for others  Involve listening comprehension and speaking skills sufficient to understand and respond to social interactions  CALP (Cognitive/Academic Language Proficiency)  Skills necessary for performance in academic situation  Skills encompass listening, speaking, reading and writing capabilities  Skills in relation to learning academic contents are important  Becoming proficient include both of linguistic and concept development  Involve problem solving, inferring, analyzing, synthesizing, and predicting background Source: (Cummins, 1981) 4
    • Demand for ELL learners are increasing background  Demand from ‘No Child Left Behind Act’ (NCLB) provisions  Under the law, each district and school needs to show academic performance for subgroups of students, which includes ELL learners. They need to not only show their English proficiency but also meet the same academic standards in reading and math as non-ELL students.  Implication of the Common Core Standards  “The standards define language as far beyond grammar and vocabulary and require important language functions, such as evaluating complex texts, constructing effective arguments, and conveying intricate and multifaceted information”  This implies that ELL learners need to be capable of performing collaborative, inquiry-based, task-based learning in each academic discipline with other non- ELLs. Source: (Hakuta from Stanford's “Understanding Language Initiative”, 2012) 5
    • Key elements in ELL education: 1  The idea of “Individualized instruction”, which is gaining traction in K-12 education today, stresses the importance of the following factors:  Recognizing each learners’ zone of capabilities and design activities that push them to be better and be challenged but not exceeding the capacity to grow  Make various choices available to adapt to individual learners’ learning styles (visual, auditory, tactile and kinesthetic), pace or learning, capability and appropriate goal  This idea is particularly relevant in ELL education whose learners are diverse in various aspects including below and need individual attention and instruction.  Prior educational background (explains where learners currently stand in terms of vocabulary level, understanding of language concept/academic contents and cognitive skills)  Cultural background  Language use at home background Attention to individual learners: Effective ELL educators would be able to monitor and provide feedback to individual learners who are very different from each other. 6
    • Key elements in ELL education: 2 background Choices for engaging classroom activities: ELL learners need activities that are engaging, shame-free and appropriate for their respective learning goals. Cooperative learning opportunities are also essential.  ELL learners learn from engaging themselves into hands on experiences that are provided in shame-free environment with appropriate aid:  Projects that develops visual-verbal connection by utilizing visual thinking skills  Opportunities for expression (i.e. with artifacts that are personally meaningful)  ELL learners also learn from interacting with others. Cooperative learning among learners provide a shared learning experience that are purposeful and adaptable:  Learners experience the process of clarifying and negotiating of meaning, comparing and contrasting views and jointly synthesizing information together through social interaction  During the process, varying level of language would input take place; Low level input=‘repetition of information’, middle-level input=‘stating of new information’, high-level input=‘integrating information and creating rationales for its use’ 7
    • Key elements in ELL education: 3 background Opportunities to learn anytime anywhere: Informal learning experiences of the ELL learners are as important as those in classrooms. Connecting those two effectively enhances the overall effectiveness of ELL education.  ELL learners could learn significantly from opportunities beyond ELL classes if they have easy access to resources whenever necessary:  Learns could access new contents or contents from previous learning for review at home, in which English might not be a dominant language in use  Learners would be able to learn English with their native language (i.e. dictionary) because improvement in native language skills is as important to be proficient in English  Educators’ access to how ELL learners learn informally would enhance the effectiveness of in-class activities:  Educators would understand where learners are, which will give guide to better use of the in-class face to face interaction time  By capturing both in class and beyond classroom activities of the learners, educators would be able to provide homework that are appropriate in level and quantity 8
    • Blended learning model as a solution Brick-and-mortar Online learning Blended Learning Blended learning:  A formal education program in which a student learns at least in part through online delivery of content and instruction with some element of student control over time, place, path and/or pace and  At least in part at a supervised brick-and-mortar location away from home (Staker & Horn, 2012) Traditional Instruction Technology-rich Instruction Informal Online Learning Full-time Online Learning particularly important for ELL education background 9
    • Brick-and-mortar ELL education and blended learning model Online learning Blended Learning Traditional Instruction Technology-rich Instruction Informal Online Learning Full-time Online Learning PC at home Cell phones anywhere background Improved attention to individual learners (richer and deeper interaction between educator and learner) More opportunities for ELL learners to learn anytime anywhere Greater choices for engaging classroom activities that encourage social interactions among learners PC in class Cell phones in class 10
    • Examples of ELL with blended learning model  Examples of extending learning experiences beyond classroom  Example of ipad introduction in High School (IL)  Reasons for device choice: ‘mobility, flexibility, screen size, instant boo-up, long battery life, app-based touch screen interface’  Frequently used application: dictionary, Kindle e-Reader app (includes instant interaction, dictionary and memo), SmartNote productivity application tor HW recording, writing assignments with Pages app and upload to iBook Library  Example of ipod touch introduction in Middle School (TX)  Reasons for device choice: ‘portability, capability to record at home, equip important tools such as translation and dictionaries, portability’  Frequently used applications: Voice Memo app enables student to create voice memo file and reflect/assess their own fluency, share with others in the iTunes library throughout the year (Demski, 201) background 11
    • Brick-and-mortar ELL education and cell phones Online learning Blended Learning Traditional Instruction Technology-rich Instruction Informal Online Learning Full-time Online Learning PC in class Cell phones in class PC at home Cell phones anywhere (*) Even in situations where access to one PC per learner in class/home or Tablet PC/smartphones are absent, there are ways ELL learners can still benefit from blended learning opportunities via their cell phones. background Improved attention to individual learners (richer and deeper interaction between educator and learner) More opportunities for ELL learners to learn anytime anywhere Greater choices for engaging classroom activities that encourage social interactions among learners 12
    •  More ELL learners now have cell phones  Lower hardware cost and running cost for usage compared to PC  For example.. 77 percent of 12- to 17-year-olds have cell phones, a major jump from 45 percent in 2004  For example.. In Brazil, 76% of mobile users access internet by feature phone  Its pervasive nature, durability and portability is appropriate as a tool to provide learning experience ‘anywhere anytime’  Cell phone are readily accessible for both learners and educators, makes customized contents delivery and progress checking easier. Learners can also revisit their learning later as many as they want.  “can be spontaneous, personal, informal, contextual, portable, ubiquitous and pervasive (so integrated with daily activities that it is hardly noticed)” (Kukulska-Hulme, 2010)  “enable enhanced connectivity with information and other users, thereby promoting the socio-cultural dimension of learning” (Hoven and Palalas, 2011)  “reinforces oral and aural skills” (Abdous, Camarena, & Facer, 2009) ELL learners and cell phones background 13
    •  A three-year project on m-learning suggest below observations in 2004. (One of the research was taken in Sweden for students learning English in a City of Stockholm school)  Mobile learning helped:  Learners to improve their literacy and to recognize their existing abilities; identify areas where they need assistance and support  To encourage both independent and collaborative learning experiences  Learners to remain more focused for longer periods  To raise self-esteem and self-confidence  A research project on ELL blended learning in Japan suggest below conclusions in 2005.  Mobile devices can be:  Effective in providing foreign language learning contents to learners  Helpful for new vocabulary acquisition because rich multimedia are effective in capturing their interest and text messages can push study opportunities at students Cell phones (even not smartphone) has merits background (Thornton & Houser, 2005) 14
    • ELL educators role still very important background  Technology is not always perfect  Some technical concerns  Device battery life  Device screen size  Access to internet influenced by signal availability, monthly plan, etc  Some other concerns  Varying level of digital literacy  Privacy and online security issues  Professional development  …particularly for ELL learners. ELL educators need to make sure that ICT tools are used in a way it is most effective in developing appropriate language skills  To make sure learners acquires correct writing style and grammar since not all of what they see today on the internet encourages the correct way (i.e. Tweets, casual web posts, etc)  To make sure subtle nuances associated with language use are taught in person and through social interactions within the classroom 15
