Welcome to the ELL database for innovative projects in language teaching and learning.
This database contains projects that have received the European Language Label since 1999
(for the pilot phase 1998-99, please refer to "The European Label:
catalogue of projects 1998-99").
The database aims to inspire practitioners, stakeholders and policymakers by presenting "best practices" in the field of
language teaching and learning.
The European Language Label is awarded to local, regional, and national projects that have found creative ways to improve
the quality of language teaching, motivate students, make the best use of available resources to diversify the languages
on offer, and other innovative initiatives.
You can search the database according to a number of different criteria:
■ Year of the award
■ Projects by country
■ Educational sector(s)
■ Pedagogical theme(s)
■ Target language(s) of the projects
You can also combine up to all of these criteria to conduct a more focused search.

Enjoy your search!

A multidisciplinary approach, international collaboration and ICT
Hässelbygårdsskolan is a nine-year compulsory school in Hässelby outside Stockholm. The project at Hässelbygårdsskolans is aimed at promoting the use of ICT as a tool for communication, documentation and experience. Together with pupils from the UK the students worked with the theme Shakespeare. The project is an example of collaborative learning within a group of students as well as between schools. It is also an example of a multidisciplinary approach where both academic and practical-aesthetic subjects are part of the project as well as Performance-Based Learning. The project has been built and run by a very committed teacher who has inspired other teachers to work in a similar way in their subjects. There are, for example, plans to use the same approach in social studies, using English as the working language.
