The European Centre for Modern Languages (ECML) of the Council of Europe is pleased to announce the launch of a new resource website of particular relevance to language teachers, subject teachers, teacher educators and headteachers at a time when schools are cautiously reopening across Europe.
This website which is available in English, French and German, provides a wide range of tools to create whole-school learning environments where languages are at the very heart of learning and teaching. This holistic approach supports and enhances cooperation and professional development of all actors involved and embraces all fields of education – learning, teaching, schools and education systems.
The EOL tools and resources can help develop and strengthen quality language education which celebrates linguistic and cultural diversity and is so essential today to ensure intercultural dialogue and social cohesion in our societies:
- EOL matrix – a dynamic tool to create a language friendly learning environment in schools;
- Moodle online professional development course;
- examples from EOL partner schools which can easily be transferred to other contexts;
- research within EOL.
This open-access resource website has been developed within the framework of the ECML programme “Languages at the heart of learning” (2016-2019), through expert cooperation in the field of language education across geographic Europe and beyond. All the tools have been tested by partner schools involved in the EOL project between 2016 and 2019.
