We are pleased to announce our first Gamified Intercultural Telecollaboration for Foreign Language Learning Seminar, aimed at secondary school and further education modern languages teachers. The event is organized by the Erasmus + TeCoLa project members.
The project (https://sites.google.com/site/tecolaproject/) harnesses gamified telecollaboration technologies to enhance foreign language teaching and learning. Virtual world interaction, video communication and online games are deployed to support online pedagogical exchanges between secondary school students throughout Europe.
Special attention is given to
• Authentic communication practice in the foreign language,
• Intercultural experience, awareness raising and competence development,
• Collaborative knowledge discovery in contexts of content and language integrated learning,
• Learning diversity and differentiated pedagogical practices.
The conference/workshop will take place at University of Roehampton on Saturday 9th September from 10.30 to 14.30 CET and the event will also be live streamed, so those of you who cannot travel to Roehampton on that date will also be able to follow the conference through our YouTube channel (http://www.tecola.eu/streaming) and to ask questions via chat. As you will see on the programmes (see webpage), the hands-on workshop will only run for the face-to-face conference and will be replaced with additional presentations for the audience following us online.
Face-to-face seminar and Streaming programme:
You can register (for free) for both modes of attendance here
We would like to encourage those of you attending face- to-face to register as soon as possible, as there are limited spaces.
Our upcoming conference/workshop will be the perfect opportunity to meet the whole TeCoLa team and to learn more about how gamified telecollaboration can be used for intercultural language learning.
