ClipFlair presentation at One Voice for Languages

2/8/2015 - Laura

ClipFlair was presented to an audience of language teachers working in secondary schools and third level education (universities and institutes of technology) at the Dublin Institute of Technology on Saturday 7th February, 2015. It received an enthusiastic reception and a great suggestion was made: organize a competition among secondary school pupils and present their work at an upcoming Language Fair in Dublin (early June 2015).
Any other school (even outside Ireland) wishing to join in is more than welcome. Watch this space for updates.

9/23/2014 - Laura

The Department of Education and Skills in Ireland has recently  published the Framework For Consultation on ''Foreign Languages in Irish Education'':
http://www.education.ie/en/Press-Events/Press-Releases/2014-Press-Releases/PR-%202014-%2008-%2029.html

This is an opportunity for us and our Associate Partners to highlight the importance of the multimedia literacy in language teaching and the advantages of introducing audiovisual translation activities as part of the curriculum, especially since the European Commission is placing much emphasis on the Digital Agenda for European citizens.

A meeting of One Voice for Languages is scheduled for Oct 18th in Dublin and this issues will be raised. I have already sent written suggestions to OVFL along those lines.

Fingers crossed!
