Introducing Zoom to English Learners -- including beginners

Hello colleagues, Given the current situation with COVID, many programs have opted to deliver instruction remotely. One of the most popular platforms programs are using is Zoom. Does that include your class? If so, what have you found helpful with supporting students to understand how to use Zoom?

Our colleagues at SABES in Massachusetts have made available a video tutorial for teachers on their website. This webpage also includes tutorials designed for English learners in several languages. Community Action, Inc. has shared videos for learners in  Arabic, French, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish as well as English. New Bedford Public Schools has shared learner videos in English, K'iche, Portuguese and Spanish.

It's wonderful that SABES and these programs have shared these helpful resources!

Let us know how your online classes are going!

Cheers, Susan Finn Miller
