In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen the importance of the capacity of schools and families to use the potential of digital technologies to ensure learning continuity (in case of disruptions of formal learning), but also enhance inclusion. The use of digital technologies in language learning provides opportunities to foster plurilingualism in a diverse classroom through the integration of students’ home language(s) into instructional practices. In addition, digital technologies can become tools enabling teachers to support all students in a multilingual classroom setting, as they may not speak all (or any) of their students’ home languages.
In this webinar, we will further explore how online language learning tools can be used in multilingual settings and help multilingual children succeed, featuring the instructional tool Studi/Binogi as an example.
Webinar panelists: Emmanuelle Le Pichon-Vorstman (University of Toronto and University of Utrecht) and Jim Cummins (University of Toronto). Discussant: Nathalie Auger (University of Montpellier). Moderator: Kristina Cunningham (European Commission, DG EAC, Schools and Multilingualism unit).
