FREMONT, CA: What is in the district’s store for those children who have overcome immeasurable suffering and unspeakable trauma while facing uncertainty and disruptions in life? Technology has the answer to the question! Refugees might not be familiar with the language of the place they seek shelter in, or have questions about the educational system and the culture. So, it is hard for educators those tasked to instruct refugees and to make up to the issue students can be met with the few education technology tools.
There is no data or research on the specific educational technologies that work best for refugees. But a recommendation is to deduce from other studies of which kinds of technology are efficient, particularly for those children who are language learners.
Learning a new language can sound too much of a task for anyone. A way to support the newcomers in speaking the language of the classroom is by offering them numerous opportunities to learn and practice the speech mediated by technology.
Many applications facilitate educators in building their personalized classroom where pupils can post images and videos. The platforms help classmates to respond to the posted video and then share their own video. As pupils can practice and review their video before posting, the apps help students to ease their oral communication and assist in relieving them from a little stress. Additionally, students can watch a classmate’s video multiple times if they want to understand it.
Education technology reaches refugees even before they are settled down. Today, there are many programs that intend to educate pupils through digital learning platforms, even when they are in refugee camps. Although such programs are difficult to set up and administer, they play a vital role in ensuring that learners do not have gaps in their schooling history due to their refugee status. The platform will prevail when schools and institutions that take in refugee children coordinate with the program. Despite coordination, the tools give the students a head start in learning a new language or any other subject matter.
