Prior to the pandemic, the public discourse on early childhood learning and digital media was primarily centered on "screen-time." When the pandemic struck and devices became the sole connection to the education system, these types of health recommendations took a back seat to a new reality: mandatory remote learning.
As with any shift in policy --even abrupt ones--, remote learning came with its own advantages and disadvantages for young multilingual learners.
Join the Dr. Kathy Escamilla and Annie Duguay of the Center for Applied Linguistics as we examine this topic through the lens of digital equity.
Each episode of our 30-minute webinar series, “Research to Policy: Critical Conversations in Language Education,” examines education for multilingual learners and culturally diverse populations through the lens of digital equity. Topics range from student assessment, teacher education, students with disabilities, early childhood education, and more.
