Questions

Give your response with an explanation and your reasons.  

 1. What did you find most challenging during the CCL project? 

  1.             I summed up in three aspects the greatests difficulties felt during the project:

        a)    The CCL project was seen by me as a challenge, because there was a need to prepare the  students for a national examination, so I had to be cautious about the change;

     b)    A demanding project, either in the planning of activities and the constant search for resources to be worked and shared, both within the classroom space, which has become much more demanding when monitoring the students.

     c)    The integration of technologies and the wide variety of apps on pedagogical scenarios tested

2. What was the biggst benefit of participating in the CCL project?

           On the one hand, the work done under this project has, in some way, reflected on the learning models tested vs "traditional" model, and verify the virtuality of the application of these pedagogical models in this age group and educational level, second, the sharing of knowledge and extremely enriching experiences for students and teachers involved in the project.

3. What have you been able to achieve? What are you most proud of?

                 Knowing how to articulate the premisses of the project, the experiences and the work done,  with the necessary balance, in a way that would not compromise the final evaluations of the students in a national examination and always believing  that this project would be an added value for a good performance in the national examination and in the communication teacher/student, providing a pedagogical aproach 1:1, with obvious gains on the learning and teaching process.

4. How will you take the work forward? How will you disseminate your work to others?

               Promoting and participating in events, at school and outside of it, that lead to reflection of the advantages and disadvantages on the introduction of classroom technologies and, obviously, keep on working and exploring the several technologies, apps and pedagogical scenarios inside the classroom with my students.

5. 2 Top Tips for other teachers 

 One simple recipe:

  • one dose of will and courage;
  • two motivating work doses;
  • balanced use of equipments and apps
  • keeping the students connected and motivated during the proccess

          and the result is...

an enriching professional experience and extremely valuable to the proccess of knowledge acquisition by students.
