Hi Heike

The situation in Greenland as a former colony of Denmark is that English is the third language after Greenlandic and Danish. So these are the main languages taught, although we do occationally teach German, French and Spanish typically to people working with tourism.

For the e-learning part we have set out with Greenlandic since Danes who come to Greenland to work are typically well educated (->good learnings skills and already knowing several languages) and have good ICT-skills, thus representing an "easy" target group for e-learning. And the courses are actually very successfull with very active participation from the learners and less than 5% dropuot.

We are now moving on to the much more difficut target group of low skilled Greenlanders in distant areas, typically with quite poor ICT skills, who want or need to learn Danish. It is going to be done mainly by mobile learning. This is gong to be an interesting challenge :-)!

How about you? What are you doing in this interesting crossing area with language and ICT?

Hi Heike,

And thanks for your welcome. I'm a teacher trainer on CELTA, YL Extension to CELTA and other TT courses with British Council here in Singapore. I found out about your website through valentina Dodge whom I follow on Twitter and who was my tutor on the CertICT.

I look forward to knowing more about the virtual round table and the group!

Hi Heike

I would have done this days ago, but when I signed in last week, the email with the activating link went to my junk mail and I only realised today what had happened!

All the best

Thank you Heike,
for the idea of organising the Virtual Round Table on Demand.
You have really made my dreams come true!
The Live Online Meeting with Henry Emery today has been a great challenge and a wonderful experience!
I hope there will be more such events in the future!

Heike,
You got it wrong I guess. May be I gave the wrong clue. This is not a profession. I think I should have stated "Research Scholar". Does that sound more of academics than work? I'm researching the use of case-based pedagogy to promote reflective practices among pre-service teachers. This is done as part of my MPhil degree. Any way thanks for the enquiry. I will make the change.
