Technology-Based Biliteracy Centers for the 21st Century Learner
Mercuri, Sandra; Ramos, Laura
GIST Education and Learning Research Journal, n9 p196-216 Jul-Dec 2014
The purpose of this reflective article is to present an alternative that incorporates the four language skills in all content areas through technology-based dual-language centers for emergent bilinguals at the elementary level. The authors propose a matrix to plan the centers and include three examples to facilitate language transfer in English and Spanish to foster biliteracy. The planning of the three projects is discussed as well as results from their implementation with elementary grade learners.
