View this presentation on the INTENT project and our European survey which was presented at the University of Limerick on 1 June 2012 by Robert O'Dowd.
Many primary and secondary schools around the world have benefited from networks such as etwinnning (http://www.etwinning.net) and ePals (http://www.epals.com/) to bring their learners into contact with partner classes using Web 2.0 communicative tools. This activity, often referred to as telecollaboration or Online Intecultural Exchange, is also practised at university level but practitioners often encounter many practical and administrative barriers, including difficulties in finding partners, misalignment of academic calendars, differing assessment procedures and divergent attitudes to ICT.
With this in mind, this presentation introduces our INTENT project (www.intent-project.eu) which is funded by the European Commission’s Lifelong Learning Programme.
