A must-read in our linguistically diverse digital age learning environments today!"

Our ELLs achieve their academic goals and learn the English language. ..Harnessing technology such as in flipped learning is a great way to help students succeed linguistically and academically”
"Frederick County is excited about the unique possibilities of a flipped classroom for its English learners. In truth, one of the greatest challenges that our school system and others throughout Maryland face is providing alternative pathways to a high school education for this student group. Many of our secondary ELs must work to help support their families; flipping classrooms for those students might have a tremendous impact on the lives of those students.

"Parris, Estrada and Honigsfeld have brought important attention to English Learners (ELs) as digital learners. This is the first book I have seen to provide support for educators as they are increasingly required to implement technology with diverse learners. The text is practical and provides encouragement for educators who are often just learning the technology themselves!
"Working in a setting where there is one-to-one computer access for students, I have been looking for information on the quality use of technology for English Language Learners (ELLs). ELL Frontiers provides a balanced approach to the theory and real-world implementation of digital instruction for teachers as they strive to help ELLs meet 21st century technology standards.
