Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics

Meeting Description:

This training and consultancy activity will help bridge the attainment gap between these learners and non-migrant pupils by drawing on a wide range of successful ECML projects and resources which focus on the linguistic integration of these learners. In addition, this initiative will expand the online inventory of Open Educational Resources – one of the key outputs of the previous initiative, ICT-REV, – through the inclusion of resources in languages other than English in support of multilingual classrooms.

Target Groups:

The workshops will offer support on how to value children’s home languages as well as on how to draw on these languages as a rich resource for learning.

These workshops will be offered to:

- teachers
- teacher educators
- administrators
- school leaders


The long-term objective will be that learners with a migrant background are better integrated into national education systems, leading to better educational achievement, which in turn will contribute to improved self-esteem, better employment prospects and a more cohesive society.
