Learning with digital technologies: US 0ffice of Ed Tech 2016

Technology can be a powerful tool for transforming learning. It can help affirm and advance relationships between educators and students, reinvent our approaches to learning and collaboration, shrink long-standing equity and accessibility gaps, and adapt learning experiences to meet the needs of all learners.
 
Our schools, community colleges, and universities should be incubators of exploration and invention. Educators should be collaborators in learning, seeking new knowledge and constantly acquiring new skills alongside their students. Education leaders should set a vision for creatinglearning experiences that provide the right tools and supports for all learners to thrive.However, to realize fully the benefits of technology in our education system and provideauthentic learning experiences, educators need to use technology effectively in their practice.
 
Furthermore, education stakeholders should commit to working together to use technology to improve American education. These stakeholders include leaders; teachers, faculty, and other educators; researchers; policymakers; funders; technology developers; community members and organizations; and learners and their families

LACS - Language Associations and Collaborative Support: Terry Lamb, 2013

LACS is a project of the European Centre for Modern Languages (ecml), a Council of Europe institution based in Graz promoting excellence in language education in its 34 member states (http://www.ecml.at/).

 

It originated in the ecml 2008-2011 programme Empowering Language Professionals, which in this project means not only those who work in schools and training institutions, but those who work to support the profession in language teacher associations.

 

Dissemination is the key word when it comes to bridging the gap between ecml projects/publications and the implementation of the material in practice. Experience shows that experts from member states need sustained support from the ecml in order to fully develop their multiplying function. This project targets regional ecml multipliers in order to build up, support and sustain regional networks engaging in, adapting and implementing the results of ecml work, paving the way from innovation to sustainability.

 

The lacs Project aims at supporting the work of language teacher associations in Europe and beyond. The project is now in its second term: lacs/1 ended in 2011, lacs/2 will go on at least until 2015.
