Tools for CLIL teachers TOOLS has developed a free online tool, which enables you to create media rich webpages for language learning. The unique feature of this free online tool is the way it treats embedded texts, at the touch of a button all words are automatically linked to our bespoke dictionary interface Multidict, which places online dictionaries in +100 languages at the user’s disposal, thereby enabling them to interrogate the text at their own pace and according to their own personal need. The fully online tool has been optimised for mobile devices (e.g. iPads, smartphones etc.) thereby ensuring that content can be created and enjoyed on the move. Once you have created your webpage you can make it available immediately for free via the online service Clilstore (or other systems like, or save it for upload to your own website or VLE. The online service exploits two tools developed in a previous project, pools-t Register for the project newsletter here Back to Top Clilstore - Guided Tour.

Teaching Math With Art Teaching math with art is an excellent strategy. The connection between the two is often overlooked in articles about teaching math, but the truth is that using art in math significantly improves retention of key concepts and vocabulary. Once you see the relationship between the two, you will no doubt begin to see opportunities everywhere to use art in your math classroom. Benefits All students are gifted, and teaching math with art gives artistically gifted children a chance to shine. When and How to Include Art in Math Instruction Related art projects are perfect for centers. It doesn’t have to cost a lot of money, either. Along with math word walls, teaching math with art is the best strategy I know for helping children understand and remember math concepts and vocabulary. The brain works in cycles and remembers beginnings and endings best. Math Stories Remember the story about the “sick” (improper) fractions?

Peter Sansom | Art, education and language com -- Discussion Questions and Projects for Use With Any Film that is a Work of Fiction Note: In some of the questions we have used the term "major characters."

I Quaderni della Ricerca #18 Il progetto “E-CLIL per una didattica innovativa”, promosso dalla Direzione Generale per gli Ordinamenti scolastici e la Valutazione del Sistema Nazionale di Istruzione del MIUR, ha inteso accompagnare l’introduzione della metodologia CLIL nelle scuole secondarie di secondo grado attraverso un’iniziativa di Ricerca-Azione, finalizzata a guidare e supportare i docenti nella progettazione e realizzazione di moduli CLIL sullo sfondo dei più recenti sviluppi in ambito di innovazione didattica e tecnologica. […] La sfida del progetto “E-CLIL” è stata accettata e portata a termine con successo, mettendo in luce le criticità e le potenzialità della metodologia CLIL, attivata anche con modalità digitali e offrendo, al contempo, utili spunti di riflessione e suggerimenti per possibili aree di miglioramento futuro. Letizia Cinganotto è Ricercatrice presso INDIRE (Istituto Nazionale di Documentazione, Innovazione e Ricerca Educativa) dal mese di ottobre 2014. Sfoglia o scarica il PDF del Quaderno

The Right Way to Show Movies in Class I like to think of myself as a proponent of using multimedia in the classroom to better engage students in the curriculum. I’ve amassed a large collection of movies from youtube, teachertube, itunes podcasts, and commercial DVDs that I show in frequent short bursts in the classroom with adults and children to help make my points and show visual examples of what I’m talking about. I think it’s time to clarify how to show movies effectively. 1. 2. 3. 4. Content. Delivery. Behavior. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Teaching Reading and Writing with Technology: Phases of the Moon For the last few weeks, I've been mentoring a fabulous student teacher. She has been gradually taking over more subject areas, and later this week, she'll be teaching everything. I really enjoy having the opportunity to work with student teachers because they bring a lot of enthusiasm to the classroom, and they often have really creative lessons. My current student teacher is no exception. Recently, we studied the phases of the moon, and I was blown away by her visual model. To use this model, students would actually put their heads in the cut out part of the middle (and I wish I'd taken pictures of that before she took it home!). I'm not sure where/how she came up with this idea, but I will definitely be building my own version of this model to use in future years!
