Friday 3rd July 2009
Institute of Education, MMU
This is a one day international conference demonstrating the use of new technologies in language learning in Primary Schools. A high profile keynote speaker will outline the broader national and international context of the role of technology in language learning.
The aim of the conference is to promote and celebrate the outcomes of a European project involving England, Spain and France. Please visit the website www.tellp.org.
The Collaborative Technologies in Languages Initiative (CTLI) is an international project in which the six primary schools, the three initial teaching training (ITT) institutions, local authorities and regional governments in England, France and Spain are working together using a shared curriculum to develop and improve the teaching and learning of languages.
The project aims to ensure that the integration of foreign languages does not create a burden on the existing curriculum, but enriches existing work in all three countries. The use of technology creates a resource base for teachers, trainees and pupils, and real communication gives meaning to language learning. Further details can be found at www.tda.gov.uk/ctli. Speakers include Marie Noelle Lamy, Professor of Distance Language Learning, Vice-Chancellor, Open University.
Who should attend?
Primary School MFL Coordinators, Secondary School MFL colleagues, MFL advanced skills teachers, MFL advisors/consultants, MFL HE academics, also colleagues in Secondary schools with responsibility for KS2/3 transition. This conference may also appeal to colleagues with responsibility for ICT.
