Local organisation: Hanne Wacher Kjærgaard and Ana Kanareva-Dimitrovska, The Danish National Centre for Foreign Languages, Aarhus University

Participants: 25 language teachers and teacher trainers
On 25-26 April 2019, the ECML Contact Point Denmark, The Danish National Centre for Foreign Languages invited ECML experts in Aarhus to provide a training and consultancy workshop on Developing online teaching skills for the 21st century classroom (ICT-REV).
In the workshop, teachers and teacher trainers discussed their needs regarding the use of ICT (Information and Communication Technology) in the language classroom. Teachers and teacher trainers also explored various activities that they can use, and they reflected on techniques for achieving sustainability of results related to the integration of ICT tools. Participants explored the ICT-inventory, a database of freely available online tools and open educational resources for language teaching and learning developed by the ICT-REV project, and teachers prepared activities and tasks based on these tools. They shared their experiences with other participants and discussed what makes a successful activity. Both days were a good combination of theory and practical tasks. Some materials from ICT-REV project and the workshop will be adapted/modified to fit a particular institutional context.
