September 2016: NEW GRANT! LinguaCuisine
As a follow-on to the European Digital Kitchen project, Newcastle University has just received a grant from the European Union’s Erasmus Plus programme, which will run 2016-2018. The new project is called Linguacuisine and will promote learning of digital literacy, languages, cuisines and cultures. It will do this by co-design of downloadable apps and social recipes by means of an authoring tool to develop an online community of practice. We aim for mass adoption of these learning materials with a focus on social inclusion…
