Technology 


Ontario educators supporting English language learners (ELLS) teach Ontario curriculum while supporting the English language development of all students, including Canadian-born and newcomer ELLs.  Wherever possible, educators provide students in K-12 opportunities for literacy development in English and their home language. 


Ontario educators will adapt curriculum programming according to an ELL's current STEP OLB or OLLB level.  Some of the following online platforms and resources may offer tools to scaffold curriculum learning while ELLs continue to develop social and academic language proficiency. 


The following websites may not be endorsed by all Ontario school boards (for various legal, privacy, and IT reasons).  This list of tools may offer educators tools to engage all students in a space to develop oral, writing or reading skills in English or their home language.
