Resource of the month

Inventory of ICT tools and open educational resources

 

Language education is an area where open-access resources, online courses, virtual classrooms and social networks are being increasingly used to give learners access to information, promote interaction and communication, and enhance digital literacy skills. Language professionals need to know not only how to use these tools but how to review them according to pedagogical criteria.

Resources:

  • Web inventory of online, interactive materials with search engine filtering tools according to language skills, type of interaction, pedagogical functions, etc.
  • MOODLE workspace for learning more about using online tools in the classroom.

Target users: teachers and teacher trainers, language policy makers, multipliers.

Authors: Mateusz-Milan Stanojevic, Martina Emke, Pauline Ernest, Ursula Stickler, Joseph Hopkins, Aline Germain-Rutherford, Sarah Heiser, Regine Hampel.

Languages: English, French.
