It has been time to explore the potential of web 2.0 in the implementation of CLIL.
We went through new tools and we expertised the social nature of Web 2.0
We received more than "some suggestion" on webtools and language skills!!!
Edmodo is one of my favourite webtools. It's a platform which allow teachers to create a digital classroom and to quickly create groups, assign homework, schedule quizzes, manage progress and so on… It’s the safest and easiest way for educators to connect and collaborate with students, parents, and each other. It's “learning made social”.
The course is becoming more and more interesting and this week we've planned and implemented a CLIL path.
We had the opportunity to approach some very useful resources in order to learn how to plan a CLIL lesson
We discovered very functional tools in order to plan and assess a CLIL pathway, particulary I think that LEARNING DESIGNER is a great tool!
A very intensive and absorving week: we've explored the potential of Extensive Reading to conceive a CLIL lesson.
We attended great webinar: I particularly loved Donatella Fitzgerald's one
" Students must learn to read, so they can read to learn"
...and last but not least Manuela Kelly Calzini's one on READING in CLIL
We discovered very engaging tools which can help teacher create an incusive classroom and stimulate reading even in kids with learning disabilities, but of course, all students can benefit from them: Rewordify.com; TelescopicText:org; Newsela; Snappy words and much more!
Immediate benefit: my Graded Readers have become a library for my classes. All pupils are enthusiastic about reading in English, first of all becouse they're free to choose!!!
After exploring texts and tools we tried our Extensive Reading in CLIL lesson plan
Reading enhances general language compentences and makes you speak better and more fluently.
Enjoy your reading: the more you read, the more you know!!!
While waiting for week four badge, we've started reading and working on flipped classroom and on new innovative CLIL resources!
I've found veri interesting resources on assessment: it's always a difficult point in a lesson plan!
Then we've discovered our last task: make an audio/video-narration of a Techno-CLIL lesson or activity
And then the end-of-session-survey
...it's not finished yet...
...now it's time for...
