Meknes – MoRCE-Net (Moroccan Resource Centers of English Network) launched its first annual conference under the theme: Creating Spaces and Opportunities for Learner Development, Creativity and Engagement. The conference was held from 16 to19 April, 2013 in a luxurious hotel in Agadir and hosted teachers and researchers in the realm of education from Morocco and Turkey and the United States.
Plenty of varied presentations and workshops were exposed ranging from new theories of approaching HOTS (Higher Order Thinking Skills) for learner autonomy, ICT (Information and Communications Technology) skills for learning, communication and networking, managing educational projects and cross-cultural exchanges etc., to practical experiences shared by professional teachers and researchers.
The rationale behind the conference is to provide participants with new opportunities to question their methods, approaches and to display new alternatives to be in the level of students’ horizons of expectations and current world challenges. Its ultimate goal is to reach deep learning that generates future leaders and charismatic figures who are excelling in schooling and civically engaged.
To transcend the traditional teaching that is holding back students’ skills and silencing his/her innate talents, MoRCE-Net is creating new spaces for learners equipped with recent innovations in the teaching arena to voice out their talents and to sharpen their skills.
Since it is a serious and a promising project that seeks to develop the learner’s abilities and self autonomy, MoRCE-NET has found reliable partners and sponsors. Hence, it aims by the end of 2013 to cover 100 resource centers/English clubs all over Morocco.
