Support English Language Learners & families with free @MicrosoftEdu translation tools for #RemoteLearning

Microsoft has free tools (in 65+ languages) to communicate to English Language Learners and their family members that speak languages other than English.

This is essential in places like New York City where nearly half of the population speaks a language other than English at home (census bureau data).

These tools are great for student learning, parent/teacher conferences, group discussions, and more while engaging in remote learning and beyond when teachers incorporate digital learning into their classrooms.

The video below provides a taste of how this works.
