VirtuLApp products available
The VirtuLApp project ran until 31 December 2021, and therefore, this website will no longer share news and new items. All project results and products remain available on this website for you.
The VirtuLApp (Virtual Language App) project group addresses the needs of teachers concerning multilingual education, and supports them to gain more knowledge about and tools for multilingual education, integration of migrant languages and less language separation. VirtuLApp aims at contributing to motivation and self-regulated (collaborative) learning for students in the classroom and provides a toolkit for teachers on how to deal with the multilingual situation in the classroom.
Therefore, VirtuLApp has developed an innovative multididactic approach which teachers can use in the classroom in any situation, by providing knowledge on multilingual didactics, application of that knowledge and tools to use in the classroom.
