Recent dissemination activities for the CAMELOT project

on Fri, 08/07/2015 - 23:23

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


also rekindled my interest in the didactics related to video in language teaching we gladly supported Nick Peachey's crowdfunding initiative in 2013 for the production of an e/i-book about the potential of digital video in language education.


Also having contributed by providing feedback while it was being developed, it is a pleasure to see it is available for Apple users as of August 6 and will be soon downloadable for devices with other operating systems.

TELLConsult's time and effort was spent on a broad range of activities in July. On the very first day of the month  we joined the group of delegates of the Comenius course 'Pedagogical Use of Interactive Whiteboards' and its course director Diana Barrister at European Schoolnet HQ in Brussels.

Aveiro edition of iTILT summer course cancelled due to closing of all University buildings

on Mon, 06/03/2013 - 22:27

Regrettably we had to cancel the Aveiro edition of the Comenius summercourse 'Using Interactive Whitebords in Language Education' offered by the EU project iTILT

Last week we were informed by Prof. António Moreira, director of the Faculty of Education, that ' [...]  the University Dean decided to completely close the University from 5th to 16th August... ' 

This measure was apparently taken to reduce local expenses in reaction to budget cuts due to the (inter)national crisis. 
 

Having explored alternative solutions (same week but in other location in Aveiro, different week at the
