The final report on the iTILT project has received a 9 out of 10 score, for which the Executive Agency responsible for Lifelong Learning Projects has congratulated the whole team on this “excellent achievement”. The evaluators rated multi-lingual website www.itilt.eu “of very good quality” for its combination of “several important and well-resourced functions: as a resource for materials with immediate application in classroom setting, awareness raising components with practical tips and suggestion for use and a teaching (tutorial) component”.
The evaluators also singled out iTILT’s evaluation processes and quality assurance methods, stating that: “As a whole the project applied rigorous procedures for ensuring the usability and the quality of all project products.” The range of dissemination activities is another iTILT strength, including social media, national and international conference participation, the iTILT Comenius course, the variety of published articles, and the website itself, which the evaluators cited as “well applied for dissemination purposes”.
As coordinator of this project, Linguapolis is especially pleased that the evaluators describe the management of iTILT as “particularly well conceptualised, provided with management tools, documents and procedure”.
iTILT is a European project for Interactive Technologies in Language Teaching, which focuses on the use of interactive whiteboards in the communicative language classroom. The Lifelong Learning Project started in January 2011 and ended in April 2013.
