Language learning and social media: 6 key dialogues
Start date: Jan 1, 2010,

By placing “language learning and social media” at the core of the network, the 13 partner institutions of national, European and international reach will examine 6 key dimensions of this combination. These fundamental dimensions are:1. Language learning, social media and social inclusion2. language learning, social media and development of language resources 3. language learning and teaching through social media in new EU countries: the case of Romania, Latvia and Poland4. Language learning, social media and multilingualism5. Language learning through social media : evolution of teaching practices6. Language learning and teaching in formal and non formal contexts through ICTThe survey of these dialogues will be supported by a set of key players: world known media companies, pan-European e-learning portals and publishers, social partners, universities, vocational training institutions and public bodies. Special focus will be given to unexplored areas (new EU countries, informal learning and disadvantaged youth).Activities will result in policy making reports, selection of best practices, a comparative study, 2 annual reports on the state of innovation in each area of activity, public debates and an awards competition. The sustained activity of periodic face-to face and online debates on the 6 key dimensions will be instrumental in connecting individuals and in bringing about prolonged exchange between experts and European citizens. The community will be hosted by the vibrant EU portal The real challenge of the network is to engage interaction between key players and the world outside, to enhance interaction with people that wouldn’t benefit from exchange if the network approach would have been less inclusive.Key findings of every key dialogue will be published in EN, FR, DE, ES, PL, FI, LV & RO. Network impact Is guaranteed through the dissemination potential of partners and especially big media companies engaged in the network.
