Project Objectives
The TILA project seeks:
  1. to innovate and enrich language teaching programmes at secondary schools and make them more motivating and effective by stimulating telecollaboration for intercultural awareness with peers of other cultures;
  2. to empower language teachers and teacher trainers and contribute to the development of their ICT literacy skills and organisational, pedagogical and intercultural competences for telecollaboration, by promoting experiential learning in telecollaboration tasks development, implementation and evaluation;
  3. to study the possible added value telecollaboration might have in language learning for intercultural understanding of younger learners.
TILA aims to offer actual practice and hands-on experiences in telecollaboration activities. It promotes professional development by addressing digital, intercultural, pedagogical and organisational concerns for the successful integration of telecollaboration practices in language education.

The target languages of the project are English, French, German and Spanish.
