Background of the project

Language education is an area where open-access resources, online courses, virtual classrooms and social networks based on information and communication technology (ICT) are being increasingly used to give learners access to information, promote interaction and communication, and enhance digital literacy skills.

However, the rapid development of tools and resources presents both opportunities and challenges. In order to maximize the potential of ICT in language teaching, it is crucial that it is used in a pedagogically sound way that corresponds to the individual needs of the learners. It is also important that the use of ICT is introduced and supported in a sustainable way and in a range of pedagogical approaches that promote lifelong learning.

Would you like to learn more about using various online tools in your classroom? Are you interested in using YouTube, wikis, forums, Audacity, SurveyMonkey, Moodle, audioconferencing, podcasts, quizzes, blogs? Would you like to find out how teachers use these tools, and share your experiences with them? And, of course, you would like to be able to do it all quickly, without bulky technical explanations, and with hands-on examples? Then visit this course!
