2. Digital solutions for language learning and teaching

In sub-project 2, means to increase the efficiency of teaching and learning that utilise digital solutions will be developed, trialled, and investigated. We focus on a range of digital resources that learners can use independently or after receiving tips from their teachers (e.g., self-assessment tools, a dictionary for advanced learners). Another goal is to innovate new application solutions, such as applications that help tie language learning to the learner’s work, study and living environment (also known as context-aware applications).

In addition to producing materials, the sub-project strives to promote digital materials’ usability in the broader context. We will update and activate outdated digital learning materials and provide pedagogical support to other ongoing projects.
