ECML webinar for parents/carers, teachers and others involved in supporting the home learning of children and young people, especially those whose first language is not necessarily the language of schooling 

Dr. Déirdre Kirwan

The Covid pandemic continues to dominate our lives and although schools in some countries are open again, there are still many young people who are learning from home, on a full or part-time basis. Linking to the theme of learner autonomy from the previous ECML webinar, Covid-19 and language education: Two challenges, one response, this latest webinar will focus on resources for the home-schooling of children and young people and how these can be successfully adapted to meet the needs of learners whose first language is not the language of schooling.

Déirdre Kirwan, ECML expert within the project Inspiring Language Learning – why it matters and what it looks like for children age 3 to 12 years and co-author of Engaging with Linguistic Diversity: A Study of Educational Inclusion in an Irish Primary School (2019), will present a range of practical ideas, many of them from the ECML’s Treasure Chest of Resources for learners, parents and teachers, which help ensure that home learning:

  • is learner-centred, motivating and fun for everyone involved
  • develops learners’ plurilingual repertoires - not only the language of schooling, but foreign languages and children’s home languages
  • supports young people’s wellbeing despite social isolation
  • gives parents/carers confidence in supporting their children’s learning
  • includes self-management tools to develop learner autonomy and track progress

Please note: the webinar will be held in English only
