Targeting Active Adult Literacy in the Community (TAALC) - Applications now open
“Without good literacy skills, individuals have fewer opportunities for success.”
Our workshop aims to raise awareness of the link between literacy and social inclusion across Europe, and the benefits of promoting a literate society. The seminars and topic-specific workshops will begin on Monday morning and span 5 days to finish on Friday afternoon. The week will feature:
Delegates will also look at the effective use of ICT to support the development of literacy skills, where all learners can benefit from the use of software; learning and teaching with talking books that everyone can use; how to use simple communication devices to support literacy; learning with sensory stories and enriching literacy with video and animation; symbol support for literacy and best practice examples.
We will also arrange a selection of cultural visits that will reinforce the learning objectives.
