TELL-OP is a transnational Strategic Partnership that involves 5 organizations from 5 different countries that seeks to produce innovative outputs in the fields of both HE & adult foreign language learning by addressing the new agenda on HE and lifelong learning & the needs for labour market skills.
The European Space of HE & the CEFRL demand new teaching and learning methodologies that promote more active participation of the language learner. Learning is increasingly turning into a learner-centered process where the needs of the learners are catered for and the teacher, if any, acts as a guide or facilitator while students become proactive subjects. Besides, learning can happen any-where any-time.
This “new” mobile learning is increasingly popular, & a cost-effective way to cater for the needs of masses of people. However, wouldn’t it make more sense if adult learners could personalize their learning & use their own language output (using their text & their own voices) to further acquire language skills? How can learners take advantage of their own mobile devices to input their own language & gain further communicative competence? Can we personalize language learning by taking advantage of Natural language processing (NLP) services & technologies already available? How can adult learners use their critical thinking, analysis & awareness skills to improve their communicative competence across different CEFR levels by using these OER tools?
