Creativity and Innovation in Language Education

Series:

Carmen Argondizzo

This volume sheds light on Creativity and Innovation in Language Education as key issues for the development of personal, professional and social competences and aims at highlighting the relevance of such concepts which education at any level, in any sector and at any time should continuously stimulate and enhance. The prefaces and the interrelated sections explore the concept of creativity linked with issues such as cultures and language use, language teaching, business settings, technology. This is carried out following theoretical and practical perspectives which integrate with each other.
The volume is published in a historical moment in Europe in which the European Commission is celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the Barcelona Agreement (2002-2012), which emphasized the importance of learning two languages in addition to the mother tongue. The volume reflects on strategies for achieving these objectives, while underlining the belief that creativity is a skill which needs to be identified, stimulated and nurtured for the benefit of the entire society.
