Registration to Techno-CLIL 2018 training course for teachers is in the final phase!

Techno-CLIL 2018 is an entirely online and free training course, promoted by an international practice community, EVO, Electronic Village Online. Every year EVO organizes training sessions on different themes, which mainly revolve around English language teaching and technologies for language teaching.

The course will be delivered completely in English and therefore a level of linguistic competence at least B1-B2 is recommended. However, the enrollment is unlimited and can be attended by both foreign language teachers and NLD teachers (Non-Linguistic Discipline) from every school level.

The moderators as usual are Letizia Cinganotto and Daniela Cuccurullo, both experts in CLIL and learning and teaching technologies. The course is promoted by ITI Giordani-Striano in Naples and at the end of the course a special certificate will be issued for use as part of the National Plan for Training of Teachers. The initiative is totally voluntary for the moderators and free for the participants.

CLIL – Content and Language Integrated Learning – is a “dual focus” methodology, fostering the development of language competences and the delivery of subject content at the same time. It refers to the learning of a curricular subject in a foreign language, with great advantages in terms of students’ learning outcomes and cognitive processes. CLIL is spreading more and more, as an integrated part of school curricula in many countries. In order to implement this innovative approach, the role of teacher training is essential. This EVO session is aimed at spreading CLIL methodology, combining teaching strategies and technical tools and eliciting reflections and discussions among teachers from all over the world. It is important to share good practices from the different countries and learn from other colleagues through synchronous and asynchronous web meetings. Webinars with national and international CLIL experts will be a highlight of this session. A Moodle platform will be used for this course.

Target audience:
