Demographers have declared that North Carolina is in "the midst of a demographic transformation" that has caught the state off guard. Hispanic students are both the fastest growing population and the fastest growing faction of dropouts. In order to prepare teachers to teach diverse populations of students, we need to gain a better understanding of teacher abilities and practices with regard to technology and ELL students. The teachers we surveyed allowed us a glimpse into their classrooms by describing their uses of instructional strategies and technology with ELL students. These classroom views revealed numerous highly creative and unique practices along with weaknesses to address in teacher preparation programs. For this presentation we will share numerous effective instructional practices using technology when working with ELL students.
