When it comes to express my own idea of ER, I would definitely suggest a definition of this reading technique within a TECHNO-CLIL approach: ER in contemporary learning contexts may be defined as a teaching-learning approach that can engage learners with information, involvement and the use of technology in order to ensure the 4Cs occur in a CLIL classroom. The empowering concept is, in short, that of the learner as an explorer trying to understand the world though reading. Firstly, ER is a fully student-centered approach as learners are put in charge of their own learning and can develop autonomy as well as achieve 21st century competencies (especially collaboration and learning to learn skills along with cultural awareness, critical thinking and creativity). Moreover, ER proves to be a means to improve language proficiency as students can acquire vocabulary, practice grammar and synthax by being exposed to interesting, task- based readings. At the same time the language supports the content learning. Being young and very young learners the so called digital natives, the task of involving them in reading may sound one of the most challenging teachers have to face. Yet, technology itself seems to offer those great aids that can help teachers tackle such a challenge. As I have tried to do in my lesson plan entitled “Child labour: yesterday and nowadays”, the teacher plays a crucial role in promoting an effective use of this approach in the classroom. Teachers guide and monitor the process by helping learners to find readings that are appropriate for their language and cognition level and respond to criteria of authenticity and immediacy (readings should come from the real world and the focus must be on the learners themselves). Then teachers offer a variety of tools and activities. I have taken advantage from the tools suggested in the course (tools to increase readability, vocabulary building, writing as well as reading comprehension tools) and activities, such as discussion and debates, reports, outlines, summaries and paraphrases, word clouds, e-posters, collaborative writing and multimedia presentation, to allow my students collaboratively explore the topic. All of them can support my learners in their effort to critically respond to the text and help fuel their passion for reading.
