On 15 and 16 October 2018, the kick-off meeting of our new project VirtuLApp (Virtual Language App) takes place in the Heritage Room of the Fryske Akademy.

An international consortium, existing of Fryske Akademy/Mercator Research Centre (The Netherlands), ATiT (Belgium), Luca School of Arts (Belgium), Trinity College Dublin (Ireland) and Universidad del Pais Vasco (Spain), will develop an innovative multididactic approach which teachers can use in the classroom in any multilingual situation.

The needs of teachers (more knowledge about and tools for multilingual education, integration of migrant languages and lesser language separation) will be addressed with the development of a multi-player augmented and virtual reality app about multilingual education and the development of a digital handbook and toolkit with video-based documentation of best-practices of schools already using the heteroglossic approach in the classroom.

The project VirtuLApp is supported by the Erasmus Plus programme of the European Commission and has a running time of three years.
