Wijekumar, Kausalai; Meyer, Bonnie J. F.; Lei, Puiwa – International Association for Development of the Information Society, 2014
Reading in the content areas of science, social studies, and current events is a difficult task that is even more elusive to Spanish speaking English language learners. There is a huge increase in children transitioning from their L1 (e.g., Spanish) to L2 (e.g., English) in classrooms across the US. These ELs face challenges due to a lack of…

Knezek, Gerald; Christensen, Rhonda; Fluke, Ricky – 2003
The Will, Skill, Tool (WST) model of technology integration (G. Knezek, R. Christensen, R. Hancock, and A. Shoho, 2000) postulates that enhancing an educator's will, skill, and access to technology tools leads to higher stages of classroom technology integration, which in turn leads to greater student achievement. In this paper, regression…
