resources focus on technology integration, emergent bilingual learners.
Early childhood educators looking for ways to develop a
supportive learning environment for children who are emergent bilingual (or
dual language) learners, while also seeking to meaningfully integrate
technology tools into their programs, now have two new EDC resources. Both
resources were funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Emergent Bilingual Children in Early Learning and Integrating Technology into Early Learning draw
on current research into how children learn, giving educators promising
practices for supporting the diverse needs of young learners. These resources
also provide easy-to-use classroom checklists to aid educators in effectively
implementing these practices. The resources, available in Spanish, Chinese, and
English, are applicable to all early childhood professionals, working in all
types of learning environments, with young children from all backgrounds.
