Literature review and needs analysis

Key messages

  • However ESL is a common problem in most of the European countries, the composition of reasons and the necessary interventions have to differ according to contextual facts.
  • ESL Portal’s main target groups are:
    • policy makers (from country context)
    • practitioners (from environmental and local context and school context)
      • teachers
      • school leaders
      • administration staff (service providers, local authorities and non-teaching school staff)
  • Good practices’  main target group is practitioners who need practical solutions.
    • Cooperation has to be the focus of the good practices.
    • Good practices can’t be interpreted without knowing their contextual background.
    • Adaptability of a good practice depends on the educational system, the institutional circumstances and school leaders’ and teachers’ competencies as well as the teaching methods commonly used in local cases.
    • Standardized form for good practices is essential.
    • Personal invitation is the most effective way to find good practices and to build a network.
    • In order to do proper adaptation, good practices on the ESL Portal should be linked by tags to the relevant country profile, ESL Library materials, etc.
  • Defining categories and tags is a challenge – let’s be flexible and start with an initial group of tags, later amend them considering experience.
  • Language barriers have to be handled somehow.
