One of the main goals of the meeting was to finalize the iTILT2 Handbook, which focuses on better understanding of the notion of task and taskbased language learning, and offers related practical guidelines for the creation of technology-enhanced language tasks.

    The spring term of the iTILT2 project has seen the beginning of filming and teacher workshops, for all partner countries. The UK partners at Cardiff Metropolitan University have been continuing their work with the four participant teachers at Llandaff Primary School. They successfully led two teacher training workshops hosted at the school. The first workshop was designed to educate teachers about the use of technologies in Task Based Language Teaching (TBLT), and the second, to work in collaboration with teachers to devise, plan and construct resources for authentic language tasks to later be carried out by their students.

    We were very pleased to be granted funding to take forward the ideas developed in the first iTILT project (2011-2013). The original project looked at using the interactive whiteboard (IWB) in second language teaching. but we are very excited to extend our work to look at the whole range of technology available to language teachers from primary school to university. The central objective of our new iTILT project (2014-2017) , is to promote effective foreign language teaching and learning by supporting teachers in their integration of a variety of interactive technologies into communicative classroom practice.
