Are you part of the eTwinning community? If so, why not join us tomorrow, February 9th at 4 pm GMT (5 pm CET) for an interactive online seminar entitled “Supporting multilingual classrooms”?
What is it all about?
Linguistic and cultural diversity is now the norm in European classrooms. What does this mean for teachers, both language teachers and teachers of other subjects? How can teachers adapt their methodology to ensure that this linguistic and cultural capital becomes a rich resource for learning? This seminar will encourage teachers to question their own beliefs as they discover for themselves the answers to these questions and the wide range of free resources developed by the European Centre for Modern Languages of the Council of Europe (ECML) in support of an inclusive, plurilingual and intercultural approach to teaching and learning.
The seminar will be led by Sarah Breslin, Executive Director of the ECML and by Professor Terry Lamb, Co-coordinator of the ECML-EU Training and Consultancy Activity “Supporting Multilingual Classrooms”.
How will taking part benefit your work in eTwinning?
The goal is to raise awareness of the support which is available via the ECML to help teachers adapt to the new reality in ways that will be beneficial to the learner and professionally fulfilling for the teacher. In the specific context of e-twinning, teachers will be better equipped to understand the different contexts and challenges facing teachers across Europe.
