This summer, for the first time, there will be a special event designed to bring immersion and CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) educators together. The Inaugural NICE conference will take place in Seville, Spain in July through a collaborative effort of several educational enterprises. This three day professional development conference will provide engaging interactive sessions led by master educators to meet teacher needs in all areas of instruction.
The NICE Conference is also aiming to do something that will have a broad impact on globalizing immersion learning efforts. As one of the main goals of the conference, NICE will incorporate facilitated networking aimed at developing international project based learning plans and ongoing classroom digital exchanges. The objective is to have participants develop partnerships that will grow beyond the conference and collaborative projects that will advance digital international learning.
"We want to provide a unique creative learning experience where educators, who are working so hard to make the future of globalized immersion education a reality, can connect, collaborate, and share with their counterparts from many places and focused on many languages around the world," Amanda Seewald ~ MARACAS Learning Kaleidoscope
Beyond this one of a kind opportunity for learning, the NICE Conference will also invite all participants to take part in cultural excursions in and around Sevilla. By working with Spain Prep and Naturanda, experts in educational experiences in the Andalusia region of Spain, the NICE Conference is able to take advantage of the exceptional beauty and history of the area and share that with attendees.
All attendees at the NICE Conference will receive valuable tools including a copy of The Bilingual Revolution by Fabrice Jaumont, courtesy of The Center for Advancement of Language, Education and Communities (CALEC). The Bilingual Revolution is available in 10 languages and attendees will be able to choose their preferred version.
