Abstract: This session will describe how undergraduate and graduate students in the Rural Inclusive Special Educators (RISE) program and the Bilingual ESL Special-education Training (BEST) program learn to empower English Language Learners (ELL) by using technology and constructivist methodology. The poster will show how teachers can successfully blend content, technology, and assessment to help ELL students achieve at higher levels in content areas to meet NCLB standards. Using current computer technology for research and presentation, ELL students or student groups learn to be responsible for developing an in-depth understanding of the content, and then they utilize technology to teach that content to their classmates.
