    E twining & CLIL E twining & CLIL Presentation Transcript

    • Why this presentation? As eTwinning ambassador, on September 18th I organized a regional conference in my town about eTwinning and CLIL. In Italy this issue is crucial especially in high schools, as since next year CLIL lessons must be given to all the pupils attending the last year. And this is the right time to show how CLIL can be useful to teachers in their every day activity and for their professional development.
    • eTwinning & CLIL CLILCLIL stands for Content and LanguageContent and Language Integrated LearningIntegrated Learning and it was promoted by the European Union in 1995 to reform Member States' education systems by introducing innovative methods for teaching in a foreign language with a non-linguistic discipline.
    • The 4 Cs ● Content (about the disciplines involved) ● Communication (production both in written and oral form) ● Cognitive ability ("think" in the other language) ● Intercultural awareness (contacts with other cultures)

    • Why a teacher should use eTwinning? ● Desktop and partner finding tools ● TwinSpace (safe and reliable environment) ● Professional development with conferences, seminars and Learning Events ● Teachers rooms where to exchange ideas and experiences with colleagues from all over Europe, pose problems, ask for help, find material and information, find out that he/she is not alone ...
    • But eTwinning is much more... eTwinning helps the teacher to achieve: ● pupils' teaching skills and their certification ● internationalization of the school ● creation of a portfolio that records some creative learning experiences ● use of new technologies to make researches and to produce new materials ● enhancement of multiple intelligences ● ….
