Novembre Numérique is the perfect opportunity to discuss new and innovative ways of learning!

#4 – Improving cultural immersion
What is a café? How is daily life for a French schoolkid: the canteen, the school courtyard, pain au chocolat,… Beyond speaking, language learning is also about discovering a different culture, as well specific vocabulary related to it. How can we rethink new technologies to improve the cultural experience which comes with language learning and to enrich vocabulary?

#5 – Distance learning
The emergence of the Internet and smartphones and the advancement of digitalisation have revolutionised the channels of communication over the past couple of decades. How can we make use of our tools for efficient distance learning for each student, based on numerous, adapted and customised interactions amongst teachers, amongst students and between teachers and students? What opportunities do these technologies offer for education in developing countries?
