- The Language Learning Magician – a project co-funded by the Erasmus + programme of the European Union, including ten partners from four European countries. One of the main aims is the development of a computer game that can be used as an assessment tool for learning languages at primary school level. See more information and videos about the game at www.thelanguagemagician.net . Click on the trailer at the bottom right of the homepage for an overview of how the assessment works (submitted by ELL-ReN member Louise Courtney, a member of the Project).
- Aspectos Culturales Ciclo 1 (Cultural Aspects in the first cycle of schooling): The video aims to give English teachers working with children in the early grades ideas about how to incorporate cultural elements into their classes. The video is the result of a project carried out in the kindergartens of public schools in the state of Aguascalientes, Mexico. The project was completed by a team of researchers from the University of Texas at San Antonio, Barry University, USA and the ITESO Guadalajara in Mexico.
