Teaching and Learning about Language Differences

Do you learn from watching videos of teachers using effective practices? Having access to multimedia resources with rich content can help practitioners improve their practice in order to serve culturally and linguistically diverse students.


The Media Lab is a multimedia resource center for professional learning. It allows you to see examples and reflect on your own practice with help from dialogue guides that discuss:

  • Dispelling myths
  • Facing practice dilemmas
  • Designing optimal learning environments
  • Applying effective strategies to support learning.
