Mobile and other technologies make possible anytime, anywhere learning to extend education to previously underserved adults and to expand learning beyond classroom walls. Technology can also accelerate outcomes through personalized instruction and practice. In this webinar, our EdTech Center experts Heide Wrigley and Alison Ascher Webber will highlight emerging best practices and innovative program models that organizations across the country are using for distance and blended ESL instruction for immigrants and refugees at all skill levels. They will share the range of critical supports the organizations provide to meet the needs of specific demographics as they recruit, train, and coach immigrants for educational success, career mobility, and increased civic engagement. Though the examples in this webinar will primarily be from ESL programs, the best practices discussed apply to digital learning in any topics and with all demographics.
