European Union language education project Secondary schools participation needed.

Recommended Posts

ARGuing is a Comenius project funded within the European Union Lifelong Learning programme for the promotion of language learning for secondary school students (ages 13 to16).

ARGuing is an innovative project that addresses two needs in European education in a totally new way:

1.How to bridge the widening technological gap between educators and their students.

2. How to motivate students to understand the benefits of learning languages at a level that impacts on their existing personal lives.

The project has created a special collaborative, multilingual game, called an Alternate Reality Game, that has been piloted in 3 schools across Europe, extremely successfully. Language teachers have said, 'The students responded extremely positively and have taken a renewed interest in language learning'.

We are now looking for further secondary schools that would like to participate in the final piloting of the project. Every participating teacher and school will receive official certificates of participation from the project. You can read much more about the project on our website at: http://www.arg-education.eu

Places are very limited for the pilot, but educators and teacher trainers can also join the game as Observers. You can reply to this message and we will send you further information so you can understand how you can be involved.

The project will produce a methodology, teacher guides, case studies and use case scenarios so that educators can understand how similar games can be used in learning.

Thank you for your interest.

Best regards
