We are pleased to invite you to the closing conference of the ERASMUS+ project “ENGaGE: Digital English and German task bank for 4th-8th class dyslexic learners” to take place on the 17th January, 2020, at the University of Miskolc, Hungary.
Our conference aims to raise awareness of the educational needs of dyslexic learners in foreign language learning, and introduce the resources produced in the framework of the project to facilitate individualised instruction in mixed-ability classes. The principal undertaking of the project, the ENGaGE Task Bank offers a flexible, thematically organised English and German digital task bank for primary school learners with dyslexia and the inclusive classes they are educated in. The Teacher Training Programme accompanying the Task Bank provides information about dyslexia and foreign language learning, the benefits of digital technology, the possibilities of differentiation and inclusion, as well as project pedagogy.
The project is realised in the cooperation of the following seven partner institutions: the University of Miskolc, the University of Szeged, Lingua-Met Gp. and Navigates Ltd. from Hungary, Lancaster University (UK), Masaryk University (Czech Republic) and Warsaw University (Poland). You can find out more about the project, the partner institutions and about the results of the project on our website http://engage.uni-miskolc.hu/ .
