Planning eLearning with English Learners in Mind

As educators and parents, eLearning appears to be coming from every direction, and we’re trying to keep our wits about us! Nonetheless, we find ourselves getting used to this new reality and ready to tackle initial problems related to remote learning and English learners.

Thank you to everyone who has sent their questions and challenges our way. We see a few themes emerging, and we’d like to address them in this and future blog posts.
