Tuesday, April 27, 2010 Newsletter - April 2010

The e-learning Newsletter brings you news about current issues, open calls, forthcoming events and e-learning resources.
Take a look at this interesting line-up below.

OPEN FORUM on Social inclusion, social media and the future of language education. Rethinking social inclusion through Web 2.0. What’s in hold for the future of language education? For the EU-funded Network “Language learning and social media: 6 key dialogues” (LS6 network), social media is a genuine field of transition, evolution and exploration of boundaries between social networking tools, human activity and learning, namely language learning. We would now like to extend this debate further. Please join the discussion and share your views with us in this open forum!

The main purpose of the ELBEP project is to solve communication problems of European prison staffs with foreign prisoners in Germany, Belgium and Greece. Prison staff learning a native language of the foreign prisoners shall initiate steps for mutual understanding and intercultural dialogue. Through their second language education via an e-Learning environment (second language portals: Russian, Polish, Spanish, Greek and Turkish) the staff shall promote social cohesion as regards both rehabilitation and lives after release.
