Introduction to Pools-3

Pools-3 (Producing Open Online Learning Systems -3) has been approved for an EU grant in the period 2013-2015. POOLS-3 is coordinated by Sabhal Mòr Ostaig (SMO), the teams come from Belgium, Catalunya, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Northern Ireland, and Scotland. EfVET has been chosen as dissemination partner with access to thousands of vocational colleges across Europe.

Pools-3 is a Transfer of Innovation (TOI) project which will exploit the results from the "original" pools project and pools-2, which developed materials for language teaching and learning as well as teacher training courses. Pools-3 will transfer the core outputs of pools and pools-2 to three new languages: Catalan, Czech, and Irish

The POOLS-3 project target group is teachers of the LWUTL (Less Widely Used and Taught Languages) in technical colleges. Due to the limited range of ICT materials for these languages the teachers often have to develop materials themselves if they want to exploit the many advantages of eLearning.

The final products are:

1. Pools of online Copyleft symbol copyleft materials to be used during in-service teacher training courses and in teaching.
2. Flexible competence based language teacher course modules on ICT methodologies and development of ICT based teaching resources.
3. A DVD with step by step instructions and examples on how to create multimedia online material.
4. A course book (downloadable .pdf file) with description of language teaching eLearning materials and methodologies

Project background

PhyEmoC practice

The use of CALL tools and techniques is relatively underdeveloped in LWUTLs, particularly in a VET context. POOLS 3 will address this gap in the new languages identified, producing pools of online source materials that can be used in learning / teaching, using new eLearning tools and techniques and enabling teachers to use ICT in their lessons. (“In upper secondary education, in most countries, there is a significant difference between the percentage of students learning two or more foreign languages in general education (59.4 %) and in prevocational/vocational education (39.4 %)” – Key Data on Teaching Languages at School in Europe 2012, Eurydice, p2.)

In particular, the project addresses recommendations 2 and 5 of the Languages for Jobs report, by promoting new methods of teaching languages to motivate learners to keep languages in their study programmes (2) and developing specialised language training modules and methodology for teachers and trainers in VET (5).

In the UK the project is ideally placed to address the challenges outlined in the 2008 Review of Irish Medium Education and the 2012 Languages for the Future report by supporting teachers in the development and sharing of CALL materials and in the adoption of effective language learning and teaching pedagogy, Task-based Learning and Content and Language Integrated Learning in particular. The proven track record of success in POOLS will help to ensure buy-in by key stakeholders and provide a clear routemap of how the broad transnational aims of POOLS 3 can be successfully married with existing regional and national concerns in the area of language learning and teaching at a range of levels.

The 2005 Uteacher survey revealed these needs for Czech: "Majority of teachers who use computers in class have not been able to change their attitudes to teaching and use computer as an effective educational tool…Initial teacher training provides knowledge about the existing ICT tools, SW and applications, but does not provide instructions on methodology and modern, computer-aided teaching methods."

Census statistics underline the urgent need for support for non-native speakers of Catalan, immigrants to the region from other parts of Spain or elsewhere. (31% of VET students are Catalan speakers.) The 2011 census shows a rise in speakers but the 2012 analysis by Centre d'Estudis Catalans comments that the school environment is "vital when creating new speakers outside the family".
