Education and Training Go Digital B1C has always recognized the importance of English proficiency for immigrants success and integration into our community As our in person programs came to a brief halt during COVID 19 we were determined to find ways to continue our English Language Learning ELL program Almost immediately our participants and volunteers came together to adapt our traditional in person teaching to a digital learning format Ron our first online volunteer tutor together with his student Alejandro shared with us this experience and what makes it work amid a pandemic I consider Ron not only my teacher but my friend I m learning a lot from him and I m motivated and inspired by what I can achieve It s nice to see him in person finally Alejandro English Language Learning ELL Student Ron quickly found a way to create an engaging curriculum Students of his like Alejandro recognize the importance of learning another language and are grateful to be able to participate in digital classes every week Ron and Alejandro both spoke about how they enjoy the online sessions where they share lively current events discussions translate documents and play games The online programs have created unexpected and lasting friendships between teacher and student A bond where they are all learning from each other It also allows even greater flexibility Perhaps a silver lining of the pandemic B1C continues to tackle the digital divide facing low income immigrants The pandemic brought to the forefront the inequalities surrounding digital access Our team helps to raise awareness and to find solutions to make remote learning within reach for everyone We look forward to providing digital access for all of our programs and services in 2021 and beyond A special thanks to our video production team Emily Tang Baldwin Tang and Jeff Um To watch a video please scan the QR code 10 www B1C org
