More than ever the world needs young people who are internationally-minded and able to participate positively in an interconnected and interdependent world. This means promoting a step change in our approach to multilingualism and cultural awareness. We held a workshop on Wednesday 11 March to explore what we might do to promote new ideas in language learning.
At the event we also launched our new ‘Think differently’ project. The British Council will be inviting teachers to join an international network of incubator schools engaging in a series of micro-projects to explore new approaches to language learning. It will be a great opportunity to ‘Try something new!’
At the workshop we explored examples of innovative teaching from around the world. Presentations were followed by group discussions and opportunities for networking. At this special event we brought together people from different fields, including informal educators, technologists and change leaders, as well as teachers, to share perspectives and experiences.
