Take part in the ECML webinar "Covid-19 and language education: Making home schooling motivating and fun”| Thursday, 11 March 2021at 16:00 - 17:00 CET

ECML webinar for parents/carers, teachers and others involved in supporting the home learning of children and young people, especially those whose first language is not necessarily the language of schooling.

Déirdre Kirwan, ECML expert within the projectInspiring Language Learning – why it matters and what it looks like for children age 3 to 12 yearsand co-author ofEngaging with Linguistic Diversity: A Study of Educational Inclusion in an Irish Primary School (2019), will present a range of practical ideas, many of them from the ECML’s Treasure Chest of Resources for learners, parents and teachers, which help ensure that home learning:

  • is learner-centred, motivating and fun for everyone involved
  • develops learners’ plurilingual repertoires - not only the language of schooling, but foreign languages and children’s home languages
  • supports young people’s wellbeing despite social isolation
  • gives parents/carers confidence in supporting their children’s learning
  • includes self-management tools to develop learner autonomy and track progress


    Please note: the webinar will be held in English only
