ICT and e-Learning
E-learning through the effective use of information and communication technology presents a multitude of opportunities that support the teaching and learning of additional languages:
- making connections - students exploring new learning environments, overcoming barriers of distance and time
- shared learning - linking communities of learners that extend well beyond the classroom
- supportive learning environments valuing individual, cultural, or developmental differences
- enhancing learning opportunities through virtual experiences and time-saving tools.
Due to the dynamic nature of the online environment and the sheer scope of e-learning opportunities for Learning Languages, the following links focus on Ministry of Education supported sites. Subject association websites often provide comprehensive links to websites and resources relevant to specific languages.
