|Hey, guess what! Truth or Dare for English Language Learners has been nominated for an ELTon. Now I’m sure you’re wondering what that is. Think Oscars for English-language materials/program design. The ELTon Awards is a program of the British Council designed to “recognise and celebrate innovation in the field of English language teaching,” hence the ELT. And we made the short list for 2012. That means a panel of some of the world’s foremost authorities in educational materials design took a close look at Truth or Dare for English Language Learners, giving it the thumbs-up and a nod towards the short list. Pretty cool, huh?
Truth or Dare for English Language Learners was nominated in the Innovation in Learner Resources category.
Nominated learning resources are assessed on the basis of three criteria: innovation, practicality and effectiveness. The 2012 ELTons will be awarded at a ceremony in London, England on May 23, 2012. Keep your fingers crossed!
From the British Council website: “The ELTons, sponsored by Cambridge ESOL, are the only international awards that recognise and celebrate innovation in English language teaching (ELT). They reward educational resources that help English language learners and teachers to achieve their goals.”
