Integration of Technology Into Instruction
NELRC’s work on the integration of technology is focused on fostering practitioners’ ability to tap the potential of information and communication technologies. Our work ranges from helping teachers use basic computing and the Web to social media and the use of cell phones. Over the years, NELRC has produced a number of workshops, publications and online collections to inspire and guide adult literacy practitioners in their efforts to make optimal use of technology.
Here are some examples:
A book and accompanying website that includes health care case studies, multimedia and projects for English language learners.
Under Construction: Building Web Sites as a Project-based Learning Activity for ABE/ESOL Classes
A guidebook providing adult literacy and ESOL staff developers and teachers with some simple, user-friendly advice on building Web sites as a classroom activity.
