TESOL English Language Bulletin

Graduate Online TESOL/Bilingual Education adjunct professor Beth A. Crumpler is a regular contributor to the TESOL English Language Bulletin.  Her recent contribution is on ESL Teacher Electracy.

"Electracy (computer literacy) provides an inquiry environment for teaching and learning.  It also provides a format for students to engage in multimodal learning, hands-on learning, investigation and self-reflection.  Electracy provides a means for students to become multimodal active learngers rather than flat passive learners."
