The Digital European Language Portfolio

The digital European Language Portfolio (ELP) is part of a Minerva project funded by the EU with main goal to adapt the ELP in an electronic format. Recent EU policies promote the language teaching and learning as a key element for European integration and mobility. EU underlines the necessity of a sort of language passport, called European Language Portfolio- ELP, which would be a personal document of the European citizen illustrating a detailed picture of all his/her language experiences and certifications. So far some ELPs has been validated and edited in a hardcopy format. These hardcopy editions present several limitations such as maintenance and long term updating. This paper will discuss the rationale behind the development of the digital version of the ELP, its technological and pedagogical aspects, and its advantages over print-based counterparts. Prototype examples of the digital ELP will be presented and discussed.
