Supporting Multilingual Learners

While nearly 100% of all classrooms have one or more Internet-connected computers available for student use (Wells & Lewis, 2006), teachers rarely use them to meet the learning needs of their diverse students. This column suggests ways to: (1) use digital videos and animations to promote students’ vocabulary development and content knowledge, (2) use bilingual texts to encourage language and content learning across the curriculum, and (3) involve students in sharing ideas with the aid of digital tools.
