Recent dissemination activities for the CAMELOT project

As our participation on behalf of TELLConsult in the EU project CAMELOT (exploring the potential of videos shot in 3D worlds),

Had interesting opportunities to share information about the Euroversity and Camelot projects the past month. The first chance was at the annual conference of the Dutch national Association for language professionals 'Levende Talen'  

The event in Utrecht was 

well attended, as usual. I distributed flyers during breaks and was contacted by various interested teachers.


Marja Ritterfeld, a member of the German department,  was very much interested in 3Dvideo-based materials to support German literature highlights and invited me to run a workshop at the AEDE conference in February 2015.

A most motivated group of 7 teachers (fancy doing your CPD activities on Saturday & Sunday!) met at the venue of the Irish project partner FIT on 18 & 19 October. Delegates particpated in an intensive programme, based on a brief needs analysis. It included items on interactivity in learning and teaching and the implications for f2f & blended contexts. They actively explored related ICT-applications and created or customised digital content for their classes.
