HAPPY EVER AFTER… with best memories from Belfast

April 17, 2014

On the 7th of April “Tools for CLIL teachers” project team gathered in Belfast for their final meeting. For three busy days the team enjoyed the working atmosphere and the hospitality of the Belfast campus of The University of Ulster. As usual, Kent navigated the team directly and clearly towards the goals of the meeting, with everyone accounting for their past activities and presenting plans for the final months of the project action. Perfection has no limit – this can be easily said about Caoimhin’s (Skye) attitude towards the software of the project. We must always be alert not to miss one of his latest improvements, which can be seen as far and away from the initial obligations of the project, with the clilstore system even user-friendlier than we expected it to be. It is obvious that the project outcomes have a good future ahead, as we enjoy the growing number of units in the Clilstore, created by our end-users.

The project team was warmly welcomed by Professor Ailbhe Ó Corráin – Director of the Irish and Celtic Studies Research Institute and Professor Alastair Adair – Provost of the Belfast Campus of the University. This kind attention from the part of the university authorities demonstrate overall positive attitude and support for IT tools in language teaching and the use of the software developed by the project in order to boost the learning of Irish and Scottish Gaelic languages.

There is no doubt that the project website and all social networks will be active after the end of the project lifetime. Not only because other projects of languages.dk family have been using them and there is always a new one at the end of the line. We have just announced a call for Tools on-line courses and during the first hours at least 5 participants, coming from Luxembourg, Greece, Indonesia, Japan, and France have registered. Long live Tools4CLIL!!!
