TELLConsult winter 2017 activities
TELLConsult’s key activities these past months were mostly related to the current EU grant ErasmusPlus programmes KA1 and KA2 and included:
Contributing to the dissemination and exploitation of the EU project 'Interactive Teaching in Languages with Technologies' iTILT (2014 -2017) on the use of mobile and interactive classroom technologies.
In addition to promoting the project on various social media we ran a workshop on the use of student response systems and formative assessment at the project’s second multiplier event at Antwerp university. For more information about this seminar see iTILT's latest Newsletter.
Also we got invited to contribute the presentation 'Mobile devices in Modern Language Education. Get inspired by strategies and resources developed in related EU projects' at the annual Tablet conference Mobile Schule organised by Oldenburg University in Germany.
Attending the kick-off meetings of 2 new EU projects on the use of tablets to support differentiation & inclusion (TABLIO) and the innovation of HE courses (REDESIGN) in Cyprus.
Considerable time was also spent on the final definition of and acquisition for TELLConsult’s ErasmusPlus courses on themes including Interactive classroom technologies, video, response tools, mobile devices and more. For an overview see the course description pages: http://www.koenraad.info/content/current-courses
The current offer was also published in the EU course catalogue at SchoolEducationGateway.
Finally, this year again, we were invited to join a number of new EU project KA2 initiatives. Topics include: tablet-based innovation in teacher education, gamification, implementation of TBLT and ICT-based innovation of language teaching in Adult Education. For his latter project idea we suggested to also include the International Language Association that we are a member of.
