2011 blended learning through podcasts, videocasts and screencasts

  1. 1. Blended learning through podcasts, videocasts and screencasts in CAL courses and CLIL projectsAlberto Lanzat García CETA Conference lanzat@hotmail.com   Córdoba, May 7th 2011
  2. 2. What would be our starting point?¿Cuál sería nuestro punto de partida? Quel serait notre point de départ? Was wäre unser Ausgangspunkt? Public  bilingual  schools  in   Andalusia   762   693   57   12  
  3. 3. CLIL Content and Language Integrated Learning It goes way beyond the mere translation of contents.CLIL: a Foreign Language is used as a TOOL in the learning of a NON-LANGUAGE SUBJECT in which BOTH language and the subject HAVE A JOINT ROLE. (D. Marsh)
  4. 4.

  6. 6. When the first CLIL projects started being implemented in our schools, many arose…•  Participating teachers: –  language / NLS teachers / both? –  language assistants –  Minimum level of competence in L2 required?•  Syllabus design?•  Level of students upon completing CSE: A2- A2+- B1?•  Design of own materials (graded, podcasts, videocasts, …)•  Evaluation criteria and tools (language-based, NLS, …)•  Available resources (graded texts, authentic texts, audio, video, podcasts, videocasts, web, LMS, IWB…)•  Attention to diversity…

  9. 9. …and “blending” is directly connected to diversity.

  11. 11. And if we talk about the teachers, we have to refer to their training.
  12. 12. A large percentage of of content subjectteachers are currently attending /have attendedC.A.L. courses at Official Schools of Languages. With very clear needs
  13. 13. Among these demand, we can mention…-­‐  Specific  aAenBon  paid  to  the  content  subjects  they  teach    -­‐  AcBviBes  to  improve  their  listening  and,  above  all,  speaking  skills  -­‐  Examples  of  the  design  and  exploitaBon  of  acBviBes  and  tasks  for   their  didacBc  units  -­‐  Mock  oral  presentaBons  in  CAL  lessons  for  their  real  teaching   pracBce  -­‐  Frequent  use  of  WEB  2.0  and  ICT  in  CAL  lessons  
  14. 14. Is this common practice? Listening clips from the A1-A2 and B1 level textbooks with aLet’s see an example… clear connection with NLS •  Classroom  language   •  Tolouse-­‐  Latrec   •  Music   •  Film  reviews   •  School   •  Women  inventors   •  Diets   •  Football   •  News  reports:  figures  &   percentages  
  15. 15. …which leads us to talk about resourcesin both CLIL projects and CAL courses…
  16. 16. What  is  the  atmosphere?   Visual scaffolding•  The  atmosphere  is  the  air  which   surrounds  the  Earth.  Air  is  a   mixture  of  gases.  It  is  mainly   nitrogen  and  oxygen.  There  are   also  small  quan))es  of  carbon   dioxide,  ozone  and  water  vapour.  •  The  atmosphere  is  essen)al  to  life   on  Earth:  it  has  the  oxygen  which   all  living  things  breathe.  It  also   has  carbon  dioxide  which  plants   Vocabulary: need  for  photosynthesis.  Carbon   To surround dioxide  and  other  gases  are  like  a   Mixture blanket  which  retains  the  Earth’s   To breathe heat.  Ozone  filters     Blanket harmful                                                ultraviolet  rays.   To filter bad Harmful
  17. 17. Visual and textual scaffolding + Linguistic simplification and elaboration   Rocks   are   conglomera)ons   of   minerals,   and   they   form   the   bulk   of   the   Earth.   The   main  classifica)on  of  crustal  rocks  is  based  on  their  origin.  Igneous  rocks  form  from  molten  rock  called   magma,   which   is   emplaced   into   and   onto   the   crust   during   volcanic   ac)vity.   Uplib   and  exposure  of  rocks  at  the  Earths  surface  can  be  affected  by  weathering  causing  the  rocks  to  break   down   into   smaller   grains   which   are   transported   and   deposited   as   sediments.   The  sediments   are   lithified,   and   sedimentary   rocks   are   formed.   Changes   in   temperature,  pressure,   and/or   rock   or   fluid   chemistry   can   allow   igneous   and   sedimentary   rocks   to   change  physically  or  chemically  to  form  metamorphic  rocks.  At  higher  temperatures,  metamorphic  (or   any   other   rock   type)   rocks   may   be   par)ally   melted,   and   crystalliza)on   of   this   melt   will  create  igneous  rocks.  Uplib  and  erosion  can  expose  all  rock  types  at  the  surface,  re-­‐ini)a)ng  the   cycle.   The   approximate   volume   propor)ons   of   these   three   rock   types   throughout   the  Earth’s  crust  are:  igneous  65%:  metamorphic  27%;  and  sedimentary  8%.  
  18. 18. Rocks are accumulations of minerals and they form the main part of the Earth.The crust is the outside layer of the Earth. Rocksfrom the crust of the Earth are called crustal rocks.The main classification of crustal rocks is based on their origin.Igneous rocks come from molten rock. This moltenrock is called magma, and it is moved into and onto the crust during volcanic activity.When the rocks come up to the surface of the Earth and they are exposed, they can be affected byerosion. Then the rocks separate into smaller grains and these smaller grains are transported and deposited as sediments. The sediments arecompressed, and sedimentary rocks are formed.
