Questions

Give your response with an explanation and your reasons.

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

Enhancing students’ autonomy and making students responsible for their active role in the project, were big challenges to me.

I also dared to adopt an innovative method in my teaching daily routine (e.g. the Content and Language Integrated Learning method, just introduced by the Italian Ministry of Education) so to ‘bend’ the scenario on my teaching context.

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

The biggest benefit of participating in the CCL project concerns my professional and personal development, thanks to what I learnt from others, being part of an extraordinary European teaching community and adopting collaborative approaches. This widened my teaching horizons with a positive side-effect on my students’ learning styles and processes.

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

I have enhanced my students’ responsibility  in completing any given tasks with the flipped class method.

I am really proud of my students’ pride and self-esteem, having a leading role in the CCL project and being responsible to learn independently.

I am satisfied for having made the most of the learning place, thanks to the creation of a different ‘scenario’ (a CLPE - Classroom Personal Learning Environment).

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

I have already involved my school colleagues in the project and my students are ‘tutoring’ their schoolmates during the learning activities.

I have also presented the project at an International conference.

I have just planned a free training course for those interested in the CCL project.

I hope I’ll keep on enhancing learning through the use of handheld devices.

5. 2 Top Tips for other teachers 

 

From time time stop and reflect about the scenario, the lessons , the students and the teaching/learning process; try modifications and see what works and what does not. 

Try not to be inundated with the wave of the apps; handle them through a careful and appropriate selection.

Try to choose the most appropriate apps  for the different thinking skills and select them following the steps of the scenario. (Avoid the use of the app for the app’s sake!)

Enhance peer classroom observation using mobile technologies and share your reflections with colleagues.
