The CEFR Descriptors and Framework
– Online Interaction and Digital Tools in the Language Classroom –

As action-oriented language learning settings are very much focused on real-world relevance, competent use of digital environments and mediation are now seen as key modes of responsible and effective communication. Thus, digital tools are seen as an essential ingredient in language education. During this webinar, we look at the relevant CEFR descriptors and suggestions as to their impact on how digital tools can and must become a resource for language learning as common as textbooks.
