Effective methodologies and approaches that educators can use in their professional work, equipping them with evaluation tools and evaluating educational activities, as well as discussing ways of motivating and involving adult learners in educational activities, and leading an informed path of professional development of educators throughout the project.
Various effective, innovative methodologies and tools that can be used in foreign language teaching (based on a communicative approach to language learning and drama techniques). They are all based on the principles of non-formal education and will promote active participation and learner involvement as well as readiness to learn as one of the core approaches.
Developing language skills as one of the ways of solving problems related to linguistic and cultural diversity in communities that create a common ground for the communication process. By improving the quality of language learning opportunities, the project will contribute to the development of communication skills in general and in English in particular of adult learners, providing a foundation for well-being and integration in culturally and linguistically diverse communities, as well as better job opportunities and greater job opportunities. employment opportunities.
The project "Language learning to support active social inclusion" is a long term initiative, which created by 3 international partners: Fundacja Active Kids (Poland), A.D.E.L. - ASSOCIATION FOR DEVELOPMENT, EDUCATION AND LABOUR (Slovakia) and ASOCIACIJA TAVO EUROPA (Lithuania).
Upon completion of the project, the overall and most important expected result corresponds to our highest expectation: a paradigm shift in thinking that can be seen both in behavior and in attitude.
This shift involves a shift in perspective from a traditionalist approach to language education and teaching while the learner is viewed as a receptor for a more progressive communicative approach that takes into account the needs of the participants and the motivation to learn the language as the primary source for further follow educational activities as well as cares about the development of communication skills in general, which are necessary in the 21st century.
The project is financed by the Erasmus+ programme.
Short-term joint staff training events
The Language learning to support active social inclusion project includes 3 short-term joint staff training events.
Task based teaching
CLT - Communicative Language Teaching - as an approach both on a conceptual and practical level. The principles of CLT will be of key importance as this seems to be the approach at present well known, but not so many educators take into account the basic principles of CLT. Besides, they learn about the methodology of task learning as one of the basic ones CLT methodologies and will practice a lot in this area of using this type of techniques. In addition, they will have the opportunity to exchange good practices in working with various groups of adults in their local communities.
English through drama and art
This activity will allow teachers to learn and practice the use of theater techniques as a methodology for learning adult languages. Thanks to this, educators will get
language teaching skills through integration games, improvisations and stage studies with particular emphasis on the use of non-verbal communication as complementary to verbal.
Social inclusion through English
The last activity will focus on learning more about social inclusion in education. Participants will learn how language competences can serve as a tool for social inclusion, and will also consider ways to ensure social inclusion when teaching languages to different groups of adult learners
(including rural areas, social differences, cultural diversity, migrants, refugees).
