College using iPads to help teach children English as a second language
from The Trentonian
With the growing Latino population — and a young one at that — many institutions are thinking about new ways to teach children English while also reinforcing their Spanish native language. One local college pioneering innovative ways to teach bilingual lessons is the John S. Watson Institute for Public Policy of Thomas Edison State College. TESC is using iPads to increase language skills and math literacy in New Jersey preschools that serve children from homes where English is a second language. The project, which is administered by Watson Institute's English language learners) Summer Institute and Mentoring Program, is currently being piloted in Head Start programs in Trenton and Hunterdon.
