Using Computers with Bilingual Students.
Smith, Glenys
Adult Literacy and Basic Skills Unit (ALBSU) Newsletter, n45 insert 1992
Computer applications in working with bilingual students are reviewed in this newsletter. A variety of practical ideas are presented to support teachers in their instruction. They include the following: (1) software to supplement vocational training; e.g., materials that introduce the use of word processing, databases, and spreadsheets in an office environment; (2) supplemental materials for English for Speakers of Other Language (ESOL) students, including instruction in the mechanical skills of handwriting as well as cognitive skills; (3) software that supplements traditional educational programs; and (4) data free programs, which help exploit the student's languages and may use a concept keyboard to extend the possibility for using a student's own language. Some of the software mentioned includes Workroom, Newtown, Context, Allwrite, Multilingual Scholar, and Advanced Folio. (LB) (Adjunct ERIC CLearinghouse on Literacy Education)
