PluriDigit: Plurilingual, Decolonial and Digital Pedagogy

PluriDigit Project: Supporting and assessing language teaching and learning through plurilingual, decolonial and digital pedagogy

The PluriDigit project has two main goals: 1) equip language teachers with relevant plurilingual and decolonial pedagogy, and digital tools for improving language learners' speaking skills; 2) assess the effectiveness of PluriDigit on students' speaking skills and plurilingual competence from a bottom-up approach. PluriDigit has allowed language teachers feel supported and secure using VoiceThread, an online platform, with learners in their online teaching during the COVID19 pandemic. It has also allowed adult language learners to become empowered plurilingual users. This page contains pedagogical resources used in the study. Results will be published soon and available here.
