Answers to questions

1. Webquest
WebQuests are a wonderful way of capturing students' imaginations and allowing them to explore in a guided, meaningful manner. WebQuests are designed to use the students' time well, to focus on using information rather than looking for it.

Example for Arts: POP ART Webquest

2.  Core CLIL Activators
'Core CLIL Activators' represent a synthesis of key elements of good pedagogy and good CLIL practice.
 3. CLIL Matrix
This Matrix is a 4 dimensional core framework built around the core elements of CLIL: Content, Language, Integration and Learning. These four elements are realised through a set of four parameters: Culture, Communication, Cognition and Community. This results in a matrix array of 16 indicators. These indicators are the basis for ensuring quality CLIL in learning and teaching of both content and language.

Hi everybody!!

I´ve been searching the web to find something about CLIL and I´ve found this site of the European Community with useful information. I hope it´s useful for you as well...


I´ve also found this Cambridge PDF with useful information about CLIL, it´s a glossary but full of explained information... Here you can find the names of a lot of charts that we used... In our work group, we were talking about this very charts on Thursday... Go ahead!!

Hello to everyone

I'd like to start my contribution to this blog with a website that can turn out to be very useful for Science and Technologies teachers. Have a look at phet.colorado.edu and check the bundle of simulations you can find there.
In 1º ESO I have found to very useful the CIRCUIT CONSTRUCTION KITS, that enable us to do impressive demonstrations in our electricity lessons (aware technology teachers!)
