What assumptions about language and communication are embedded in our tools? Do the tools we use reflect our students, their communities, and their language goals? How do broader social contexts shape how students interact with tools?
This past year, bilingual educators have relied greatly on technology to support language, literacy, and content development in the partner language and English. This session prompts educators and policymakers to move beyond questions of mere access to digital tools when considering issues of digital equity for emergent bi/multilinguals.
Speakers will consider digital teaching and learning in dual language bilingual education programs, including Indigenous language programs. They will discuss the importance of going "beyond the tech," and will critically consider how technology affords the potential for both inclusion and exclusion in dual language bilingual education programs.
