What's the status of digital learning resources for English learner students?

Using digital resources for English learner students

In the 2015-16 school year, there were about 5 million English learners in U.S. public schools grades K–12, according to the U.S. Department of Education (ED). Many teachers, including those in small and rural districts, have 1 or more English learners in their classrooms—or soon will. These teachers may often use technology when instructing these students.

To date, there is no national data to inform on whether and how teachers are using digital technologies to instruct English learner (EL) students. Westat is conducting the National Study of English Learners and Digital Learning Resources (NSELD) for ED to look into these questions. We are working with our partners SRI International, OneWorld Linguistic Consulting LLC, and Educational Systemics.
