Throughout U.S. history, bilingual education has fallen in and out of favor. But today, due to an increasing number of emergent bilingual students, or English language learners, and a growing body of research demonstrating the individual and community benefits of bilingualism, more and more schools have begun to reframe their thinking regarding dual language learning.

During this edWebinar participants will:
Learn about the bilingual advantage—the benefits of learning more than one language
Review the state of today’s dual language education programs
Find out how bilingual education can strengthen communities
Discuss how edtech can support bilingual education and make for stronger communities

This edWebinar will be of interest to K-12 teachers and school and district leaders. There will be time to get your questions answered at the end of the presentation.
