PLENARY SESSION WITH DAVID MARSH
Eyes on the horizon, feet on the ground: How CLIL is bringing added value for students, teachers and communities
Research shows that individual teachers can have a huge impact on achieving high student learning outcomes. What they need are the resources, guidance in using these resources, and a belief in their ability to enhance the quality of student learning. In this presentation we focus on ‘how we do it’ when blending content learning with English through CLIL, whilst keeping our feet on the ground and our eyes on the horizon.
Making the most of the collaboration between language and content teachers in CLIL with Víctor Pavón Vázquez
In CLIL, as in any other type of bilingual education, two languages are used to promote cognitive and language learning. Although in CLIL the foreign language is the minority language employed, the benefits of combining both languages cannot be underestimated. In line with this, the collaboration between language assistants and content teachers can result in the development of strategies that contribute to improved learning of the content matter and also to development of language skills.
Art for a new generation: the journey of imagination with Ana Isabel García Abellán & Sergio Ramirez
Teaching Art & Craft in the bilingual primary classroom can be very challenging. A new generation of students with different learning styles require new methods of teaching. Methods that make the most of their creativity and imagination offering also a connection with other subjects and a language development approach. In this workshop we will explore new resources to go beyond creativity.
Bringing experiments to life in the Science classroom with Blanca Morote Fernández
In this workshop Blanca Morote will discuss how to incorporate real experiences and collaborative work into the Sciences classroom using experiments.
The Art and Craft of a creative English class with Izabella Hearn
In this session we shall experience how we can make both teaching and learning enjoyable and allow each and every child to fulfil their potential without jeopardising the needs of a school situation. With references to the teachings of Howard Gardner (Multiple Intelligences theory) as well as NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) we are going to explore an alternative way of looking at our aims and objectives, and a more successful way of getting there.
The challenges in teaching Science in English and some practical ideas on how to meet them with Jane Cadwallader
“An obstacle is often a stepping stone” (Prescott). Being clear about the challenges we face in CLIL and specifically in teaching natural and social sciences in English puts us on the right road to achieving our ends. In this session we will explore 3 challenges: covering the “contenidos básicos” of the Spanish syllabus, using as much English, and as little Spanish, as possible and using a child based approach.
We will focus on using a child based approach and what this means, looking at some basic principles: building on what the children already know (constructivism) taking different types of learning styles into account (multiple intelligences) and cyclical learning. We will see through practical examples of activities how we can include covering the “contenidos básicos” and using as much English as possible in this approach.
Hands-on Learning with Nina Lauder
Children are curious and full of energy, and they internalise information best when they are actively involved in meaningful activities. In this session we will look at different aspects of hands-on learning for Social Sciences and Natural Sciences and will discuss activities, games, projects and group work tasks which help children learn through discovery. We will examine CLIL activities for 1st, 3rd and 5th years and see how language and subjects can be integrated to make successful and enjoyable lessons.
Learn all about the latest innovations in CLIL methodology with the most recognized specialists: David Marsh, Nina Lauder, Jane Cadwallader, Blanca Morote Fernández, Izabella Hearn, Sergio Ramírez, Ana Isabel García Abellán and Víctor Pavón Vázquez.
