TOOLS – an Erasmus+ project!

The project TOOLS (Technologically enhanced online opportunities for language learning in inclusive education) aims to prepare in- and pre-service English teachers to face diversity and inclusion in the classroom in the digital age. Inclusive schools are effective in countering discriminatory approaches and attitudes toward students with disabilities if teachers are aware of the variety of needs and can cope with them in their classrooms. We believe that foreign languages, especially English, form a powerful platform for enhanced education and personal development for learners with different individual needs. The project examines how learning settings in schools can be further established, improved and enhanced with the help of digital technologies.

With the support of the European Union and Erasmus+, 7 partners across 5 countries combine skills in the areas of inclusion, ICT and teacher training, along with their different cultural perceptions. The project deals with questions of inclusion and diversity in the digital age, more pressing than ever in light of Covid-19, and will provide an online platform with an e-learning and blended learning course as well as an inventory of materials on inclusive learning. The platform will assist teachers in implementing a more inclusive approach to teaching and can start a conversation on what diversity and inclusion mean in the context of foreign language education today.

In Münster, the Zentrum für Lehrerbildung (ZfL) and the team of English language education at the WWU as well as the Zentrum für schulpraktische Lehrerausbildung (ZfsL) are working on the project.

Tools: Keeping up the good work!

After a short hiatus over the summer, the Erasmus Plus Project TOOLS has taken up work again in its partner meeting on September 22nd. Due to the Corona crisis, this meeting had to take place via Zoom (see photo).

During the meeting, the different partners of the project provided a short update on their work in progress and arranged a timeline for their contributions in the upcoming weeks. The project, which deals with questions of inclusion and diversity in a digital age, has just entered the phase of materials development. The team of English language education at the WWU Münster (represented by Frauke Matz, Daniel Becker and Anika Marxl) will also contribute some learning materials to the project. The materials to be developed aim at assisting teachers in dealing with different forms of diversity in their classrooms and will be collected on a project-platform soon.
