E Learning to support New Entrants Literacy

I have started my inquiry around how can the use of ipads support children's literacy skills in a new entrant setting. I have downloaded a range of apps and worked through them. I have chosen a Maori and Pasifica child to monitor on their key word recongition through flash card games such as eggy words.

Through teacher mentoring and encouraging peer collaboration to support reading and writing.

My inquiry is how can i lift the baseline achievement of the ESOL, Moari and Pasifica students for reading by using digital media to support their daily reading and word work.

Digital Literacy = utube, ipads, computers, photographs, music, song, dance.


These children had a vocabulary age of between 2.8 and 3.11

With a word recognition of stanine 1 or 2.

I will retest at the end of the year.
