CLIL Canarias

  1. 1. CLIL in Spain: Willing to give communication, motivation and cognitive skills a boost Brief view of CLIL implementation in the Canary Islands AICLE en España: Buscando dar un impulso a la comunicación, la motivación y las destrezas cognitivas
  2. 2. 21th Century LANGUAGE LEARNING PRIORITY: COMMUNICATION rather than accuracy and grammar
  3. 3. CLIL implementation process * 1995: One of the first UE legislative references on CLIL cooperation is the Council Resolution of 1995 which refers to the promotion of new innovative methods and in particular teaching no linguistic subjects using a foreign language to facilitate a bilingual education. (Eurydice: 2006). White book of the Commission (1995): <<Secondary Schools should consider teaching contents through the first foreign language, as it has been done at the European Schools where the children of the UE workers are educated”. * 1995-2012: From 1995 European Programs and National Policies on Education have increasingly implemented CLIL in the educational systems (Eurydice 2012). * 2003: UE Commission establish a plan to promote language learning and linguistic diversity: measures to support national, regional and local authorities actions. * 2004: The Bureau of Education of the Canary Islands Government set new actions to promote foreign languages learning (mainly English) according to the EU plan.
  4. 4. CLIL implementation process Canary Islands Bureau of Education actions: 2004/05 Experimental project: Active Learning of Foreign Languages. (9 public pre & primary schools). 2005/06 7th June, 2005 Resolution: Bilingual Sections Projects for teaching non linguistic subjects in English in public High Schools. 21th July, 2005 Resolution: 12 High Schools selected to participate. (IES Vecindario among them) 2006/07 Resolution to add: 8 Primary Schools and 8 High Schools to the Bilingual Sections Project.
  5. 5. CLIL implementation process Canary Islands Bureau of Education actions: 2007/08 15th, December, 2006: Cooperation Agreement MEC - CCAA (PALE): Money for teacher training in CLIL. 1.Initial training: Linguistic competence for CLIL teaching. (First time that a legal resolutions uses the term CLIL / AICLE). 2.Continuous training: Different formats: - CLIL & language immersion courses in a foreign country during the academic year. - Courses on communicative competence for non linguistic subjects teachers (mainly at the official Schools of Languages). - Job exchange with teachers from UK and Ireland. - Job shadow in a Primary or Secondary School in UK or Ireland. - Training courses in UK or Ireland during summer holidays.

  7. 7. CLIL implementation process Canary Islands Bureau of Education actions: 2014/15 Playing CLIL project. Attempt to introduce new methodologies in CLIL teaching: Thinking Based Learning. Cooperative Learning. Game Based Learning. 2016/17 PILE: Plan de Impulso de Lenguas Extranjeras de Canarias. An attempt to extend CLIL to all students. Main difficulty: lack of CLIL prepared teachers (B2 in English and CLIL training)
  8. 8. Two ways of facing CLIL in the Canary Islands Primary Education: *The English teacher is the one in charge of teaching Music, Social Studies and Natural Sciences in English. Secondary Education: *The non-linguistic teachers with the help of the English teacher gives their lessons in English, at least an hour per week.
  9. 9. The beginning of CLIL in the Canary Islands 2005/06 Secondary Education Teaching practice: *Target students: 2º ESO (2nd Secondary year = low level in English) *Traditional teaching: Use of Spanish text book together with some self- designed activities. *CLIL strategy: Explain and introduce contents in L1 (Spanish) using the text book and design some worksheets in English to review and consolidate knowledge in L2 (English), or sometimes to introduce specific vocabulary in English. Main concerns of teachers & families: • Not to leave subject contents behind due to the use of L2. • Should we consider L2 when setting student´s marks? • Is going the use of L2 to affect somewhow student´s learning and succeed in subjects?
  10. 10. What happens in CLIL classrooms? CHANGE IN METHODOLOGY: MORE VISUAL AND COMMUNICATIVE * Flashcards: - Matching. - Memory. - Many other games. * Labelling:
  11. 11. DEVELOPMENT OF THINKING SKILLS * True or false. * Multiple choice. * Match the halves. * Linking. * Ticking * Ranking
  12. 12. FOREIGN LANGUAGES LEARNING STRATEGIES APPLIED TO NON- LINGUISTIC CONTENTS * Guessing what / who / when…. * Classifying. * Filling the gaps. * Underline the right option. * Communication: Find someone who… * Communication: Running dictations…
  13. 13. LEARNING NEW WAYS OF TEACHING * Crosswords and puzzles. * Scaffolding writing and creating sentences:frames.
  14. 14. CLIL Communication Content Cognition CLIL 4c (Coyle) Teaching & Learning through a foreign language Culture ?? Without forgetting the CLIL proposals
  15. 15. What are the main obstacles to improvement? Tradicional teaching strategy: Book focused & individual learning (communication is not a must of the teaching-learning process) Some group activities fostered communication, but… was it enough? What about students motivation when most of the tasks were worksheet centered? How to develop cognition skills? Any planned strategy?
  16. 16. How can we foster?… 1.- COMMUNICATION In L2 (English) 3.- MOTIVATION 2.- COGNITIVE SKILLS
  17. 17. Training in “New Methodologies” From the “operator teacher” (apply lessons) to the “architecht teacher” (design activities to learn): * Multiple intelligences theory * Thinking Based Learning * Game Based Learning * Cooperative Learning * Project Based Learning * Problem Based Learning * ITC (Information and Communications Technologies) in education
  18. 18. COGNITION
  19. 19. Thinking Based Learning Robert Swart: "National Center for Teaching Thinking" Boston. Thinking skills. David Perkins: Teacher at Education School Harvard. Thinking routines.
  20. 20. THINKING SKILLS
  21. 21. MOTIVATION: Game Based Learning & ITC
  22. 22. COMMUNICATION: Cooperative learning & ITC AICLE
  23. 23. Context: Teaching in the 21st C. 3 bases of the 20th C. classroom 3 bases fo the 21st C. classroom  Student´s passive reception of info (contents).  Unidirectional oral & written communication by the teacher  Individual learning- competition. AIM: Pass tests & exams to promote.  Critical thinking  Collaboration  Communication AIM: Competences adquisition & transfer to real life.
  24. 24. Context: Teaching in the 21st C. Learning process based on a student´s active role Teacher as a designer of learning situations, guide and facilitator Use of cooperative learning structures, where communication is a MUST Cognition: Moving from low to high cognitive demanding tasks (scaffolding) Culture: Significative & context embedded learning tasks and involve in European projects.
  25. 25. Training on CLIL right now in the Canary Islands From the “operator teacher” (apply lessons) to the “architecht teacher” (design activities to learn): Willing to give Communication, motivation and Cognitive skills a boost
