Questions

Give your response with an explanation and your reasons.

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

 

In the first part of the CCL project, I found it really challenging to plan the scenario in detail and to identify stimulating and meaningful activities for the students. The assessment was also a critical issue. Directing and guiding the students to a responsible use of tablets during the performance of the activities, and leading them to improve their ability to self-evaluate their outputs and outcomes were also difficult aspects of the project. 

 

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

 

Thanks to the project, I’ve started to think more deeply on the impact of innovation in methodology, introducing learning activities by which the students become active protagonists.

It’s been extremely important for me to “open a window” on international experiences and to access the CCL website, with all the interesting and valuable resources and materials that offer points for reflection as an incredibly interesting and valuable suggestions.

 

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

 

I’ve gained a lot of experience in using and managing the iPad in the classroom, thanks to the  definition of the single learning activities. The students have become more careful and responsible in using the tablets, and the project has engaged and empowered them with learning experiences, leading them to be more autonomous in their learning.

 

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

 

In our school a teaching approach based on scenarios has become a well-established methodology and a wide group of colleagues works in this direction. The various experiences are shared and documented in training opportunities and are also published on the school site.

 

5. 2 Top Tips for other teachers 

 

Teaching with tablets cannot be improvised and teachers must have a clear idea of the objective they want to reach, in order to avoid easy distractions. That’s why I think that all teachers should enforce compliance with precise rules of use, trying also to integrate innovative practices and workshops working procedures with more traditional tools, such as books, copybooks, scissors and glue.
