IDEAL (Integrating Digital Education in Adult Language Teaching)

Erasmus+
Project number: 2019-1-DE02-KA204-006523

Between October 2019 and December 2021 GexCALL (UEx), will be working together with partner organisations from France, Poland, Great Britain, Spain and Italy in the Erasmus+ project IDEAL (Integrating Digital Education in Adult Language Teaching) dealing with digital competences in language learning. The Digital Competence Framework for Educators (DigComEdu 2017) and the updated Common European Framework for Languages (CEFR) serve as a basis for the development of the project.

Modern language teaching does not only involve a range of digital tools, but the updated Common European Framework for Languages (CEFR) also incorporates the area “online communication” – therefore, the question arises on how to support language teachers to systematically use new media and tools and how to successfully promote the acquisition of necessary competences in online communication among learners.

The IDEAL project supports this by:

  • researching the current state of language teachers’ competences in the participating countries and collecting good practice examples;
  • developing a European Competence Profile for language teachers based on DigCompEdu and CEFR;
  • providing free, innovative materials, good practice examples and video tutorials online that favour practical implementation in class.
