In many schools across the country, finding ways to help English Language Learners (ELLs) has been presented as an either-or option at the expense or detriment of other programs. Too often we are given the impression that money and technology will be the silver bullet to solve the achievement gap. In this presentation, participants will have the ability to see that rather than a decision of where to split limited resources, strategies in ELL classrooms or with ELL students can be used to support and lift ALL student achievement. Participants will engage in TEK-aligned, low-tech methods of allowing students to work at a reasonable pace and differentiate large groups of students with ease. Participants will walk through various low-tech solutions, such as six-station tutorial sessions, hallway video safaris using QR codes and YouTube videos, and GIF makers for more complex concepts. Participants can expect to learn how to win student's attention and dedication using readily available resources to create a winning combination of visuals, individual accountability, and technology to increase learning regardless of linguistic or socioeconomic background.
