This event introduces the handbook "QITA - Quality in bi- and multilingual early childhood education. Handbook for language and multilingualism" which was developed in the context of the QITA project funded by the Robert Bosch Stiftung. We discuss ideas on how to implement the QITA handbook in early childhood education and will present the QITA toolkit. The focus of this talk will be on factors influencing bi- and multilingual language development, in particular the role of input quality and quantity and interaction. https://www.fmks.eu/veranstaltungen-mehrsprachigkeit.html
