EUROVOLT via VLE

This project fully supports the e-learning initiative of the European Commission, encouraging language teachers and trainers to make full use of the new media and information and communication technologies (ICT) and the new media for learning scenarios which may be independent of place and time. There is a general and specific need to familiarize language teachers and trainers with the use of ICT and to show them how to use these to their best advantage in different vocational training situations. Research conducted by the International Certificate Conference (ICC) for the European Commission, the experience of different members of this consortium in related work have shown quite clearly that there is an urgent need to develop the new literacies (scientific, digital, practical, linguistic and cultural) if vocational language teachers and trainers are to take full advantage of the possibilities offered by virtual learning environments. A major shift of paradigm in the cultures of learning is called for in current publications and surveys on this subject, (see "The impact of new information technologies and internet on the teaching of foreign languages and on the role of teachers of a foreign language", a report commissioned by the Directorate General of Education and Culture in 2003).
