I've been thinking for quite a while about how to incorporate the use of technology tools and reading instruction for English learners. I know that I can demonstrate how to use certain apps on your iPhone or smartphone to find new words, definitions, and/or synonyms for words. Then, stories can be read on an iPad or similar tool. What other ideas are out there? What have you tried? What was successful? Or, not?
