Leveling the playing field for English Language Learners
LoomVue helps English Learners understand texts and learn academic vocabulary by flipping the hardest words into their native language.
More even ground, in any classroom
Let LoomVue worry about speaking the native languages of your students, even when you can’t. LoomVue automatically transforms your English text—from online science articles to history book excerpts and more—into diglot weave text, an accessible blend of English words with words from a student’s native language.
Increase classroom equity
LoomVue’s translations and recorded audio are integrated into the texts, reducing the frustration and workload of English learners.
Provide scaffolded language support
LoomVue automatically flips the hardest English words back into the student’s native language. For ejemplo, this sentence blends palabras from two languages together.
Support subject-area teachers
Students can understand academic content while teachers focus on teaching their subject, regardless of their respective language skills.
"That's what we need right now in our class, in our school. That's what we're asking for!"
LoomVue examines full sentences to make sure it knows the right meaning of each word before translation. It uses a custom state-of-the-art machine translation and word alignment engine.
Adjust the difficulty level of translated words, percent of words flipped on a page, and the visual design of flipped words. Easily search our database of articles or create your own content.
Closing the language achievement gap
LoomVue is designed for English Language Learners in middle and high schools who struggle with academic vocabulary and reading comprehension.
LoomVue makes it easier for students and teachers to accomplish their learning objectives by creating more even ground for students of diverse language and literacy backgrounds.
Research-Backed Language Learning
LoomVue is funded in part by a Department of Education IES SBIR grant. An external evaluation of LoomVue by WestEd, showed that middle school English Language Learners (ELLs) significantly increased vocabulary knowledge after using LoomVue for just a week. Students reported that LoomVue was “fun” to read with and called the word quizzes “addictive.” Teachers said LoomVue was “what we need right now in our class, in our school.” Teachers found the focus on learning vocabulary critical: “That is my biggest struggle as a teacher, the vocabulary in science can cause a roadblock for ELL students.” They especially liked the Aided Reading Mode, because it “allows for students to choose what they’re really interested in and already have some [reading] support.”
We are committed to help you in your quest to support your students learning English by making it as natural, effective, and fun as possible.
