Nanotechnology and Closed Captioned Videos: Improving Opportunities for Teaching Science to ESL Students
Kumar, David Devraj; Scarola, Kimberly
Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, v7 n2 Article 3 Dec 2006
This paper argues in favor of Closed Captioned Video technology for incorporating nanotechnology as part of teaching science to English as a Second Language (ESL) students. Nanotechnology deals with particles with diameters 1-50 nm and provides a macro-context for science instruction. Closed Captioned Videos provide an effective tool for presenting nanotechnology information in a meaningful way to ESL students. Implications for science curriculum and instruction are discussed.
