Technology-Based Materials for ESL Learners. Empowering Learners Project.
Lists of resources are presented that were developed as part of the Empowering Learners Project (ELP), a collaboration of five United Way agencies in the St. Paul, Minnesota area. One of the goals of the project and its Technology for Literacy Center was to identify computer software and other media materials that would support the acquisition of basic skills and familiarize adult learners with new technologies. The items, including English-as-a-Second-Language materials, represent learner needs identified by the ELP agencies. The list of technology-based materials includes the material/product title and information on vendors, type of media, hardware required, and one-to-three word description of content. A list of vendor sources is also provided. The following agencies were part of the project: Chicanos Latinos Unidos en Servico, Guadalupe Area Project, International Institute of Minnesota, Labor Resource Center, and Lao Family Community. The Technology for Literacy Center is a program of the Community Education Department, St. Paul Public Schools. (LB)
