From Liceo Vittorini
In September, after having hosted the international meeting with our partners, we held a course for 15 teachers in cooperation with ETI Malta. One of their teachers taught us how to improve our use of the Clilstore by producing interactive units and embedding web3 exercises created through some specific sites.
On 21st and 22nd November 2019, the three teachers in charge of the project, held a two-day workshop, 6 hours on the whole, for a small group of fellow colleagues who were trained in creating Clilstore units and web3 exercises.
Both courses, the English one by ETI Malta and the Italian one in November, have been quite successful. Our teachers have got very interested in the Clilstore and they have found Multidict particularly useful.
Two levels of tests have been made:
- The language specialist teachers have been testing the Clilstore units produced in Italian to check the level of quality.
- Tests on Clilstore lessons in English have been carried on in class.
The best units are shared with our colleagues so that a first feedback is provided. Cooperation and dissemination inside our school is the way to get more and more teachers involved and interested in the project, the task being to have a larger number of Clilstore units authors and users.
As an output Liceo Vittorini has published fourteen units about Art, Italy, literature, sport, science and Italian fashion. A choice of exemplary units will be soon ready for the partners to test.
The Liceo Vittorini headteacher, Dott.ssa Albalisa Azzariti, took part in a meeting held by Invalsi, the National Research Institute for Education, in Viterbo in November.
Here she met teachers, headteachers and researchers from all over Italy, working in all different kinds of schools. She had the opportunity to disseminate the Cool project and she got a lot of participants interested.
