Workshop: Effective Cloud-Based Technologies to Maximize Language Learning

In this presentation, examples of cloud-based technologies useful for teaching and learning foreign and second languages are provided. They are designed to help teachers expand their repertoire of tools and facilitate the needs of 21st century learners. With Katya Koubek, PhD, Associate Professor of Education & Coordinator in TESOL, James Madison University, USA.

Thursday 8/10

09:00-10:00, D138
Keynote: Dr. Òscar Prieto-Flores:
Paths that lead students of ethnic and immigrant background in Europe on a college track

When speaking about the educational success of minority students (Roma and first and second generation migrants and refugees), in general, we usually only look at elements relating to the capacities of these young people, endogenous to their own culture or to their socioeconomic environment. Although this last element is important, this keynote emphasizes the situation of access of these groups in Higher Education and how some specific interventions are shaping positively the aspirations and expectations of minority students and widening their access to Higher Education. Are western societies promoting fairly their access to the university? What limitations and possibilities emerge from mentoring, outreach activities, and secondary inclusive education? These elements and processes will be discussed accordingly with evidence found in cross-cutting recent studies in the field.

Dr Òscar Prieto-Flores, Assistant Professor and Coordinator of the University of Girona Mentoring Lab, Spain.
