During the expert meeting in October 2017, the e-lang team was joined by the two project associate partners from Canada. The extended team had the opportunity to analyse the feedback from the participants who attended the project workshop which took place in the days prior to the meeting. This feedback, which was overwhelmingly positive, focused both on the workshop itself and also on the pedagogical framework and the existing training modules developed by the project team and reviewed by the participants.
Based on this feedback, the team drew up a list of modifications to be applied to what was already produced and changes were also proposed to improve the layout of the training platform. The second phase of the training module development was scheduled. As initially planned, this phase will be carried out throughout 2018.
The team also decided that the pedagogical framework should be published shortly, this decision was endorsed by the ECML. The framework details the main principles of the socio-interactional approach (which guides the entire project) and explains what real-world tasks are.
By the end of 2017 (or beginning of 2018), it will be possible to freely access the first training modules on Moodle. These will be offered to teachers interested in developing their digital literacy. The pedagogical framework will also be available for download in both French and English on the project website.
See you soon on our various platforms!
