Her blog provides an insight into a sharing good practice study visit to a school in Ireland. This study visit has grown from bringining together educators from different countries together in EU Commission events.
Here is the link to the blog I had written about the same school with great enthusiasm after meeting the headteacher, Deirdre Kirwan, and seeing her presentation at a Rethinking language education event in February this year.
Many thanks to Kristina Cunningham, Ana-Maria Stan and their team for the energy, connections and learning their events have generated!
The visit was organized thanks to Dina Mehmedbegovic, whom Letizia had met during a meeting at the European Commission. Healthy Linguistic Diet, illustrated during that meeting, seemed to be a very interesting approach, that is why the Italian researchers decided to work on a case study on the school in Dublin, which was told to be implementing HLD.
The researchers received a very warm welcome from the present and former school principal and from the teachers: they could interview them and also observe some very interesting and engaging lessons. A group of children was also interviewed by the researchers and they expressed their enthusiasm and passion for being allowed to speak and even teach their peers their mother tongue.
After the study visit, the Italian researchers would like to further investigate HLD with the help of Dina Mehmedbegovic and possibly experiment this method in a sample of Italian schools both from the EFL perspective and the Italian as L2 one, especially in consideration of the multiethnic and plurilingual characteristics of Italian classes.

Offer expires July 31, Contemporary societies place challenging demands on individuals, who are confronted with complexity in many fields of their lives. A research question triggered our study: what do these demands imply for key competencies that individuals need to acquire in an ever-changing society? This project, carried out under the leadership of Switzerland and linked to PISA Programme for International Students Assessmentbrought together experts in a wide range of disciplines to work with stakeholders and policy analysts to produce a policy-relevant framework.
Individual OECD countries were able to contribute their own views to inform the process. The project acknowledged diversity in values and priorities across countries and cultures, yet also identified universal challenges of the global economy and culture, as well as common values that inform the selection of the most important competencies.
As explained in the report:. First, individuals need to be able to use a wide range of tools for interacting effectively with the environment: both physical ones, such as information technology, and socio-cultural ones such as the use of language. They need to understand such tools well enough to adapt them for their own purposes — to use tools interactively.
Second, in an increasingly interdependent world, individuals need to be able to engage with others, and since they will encounter people from a range of backgrounds, it is important that they are able to interact in heterogeneous groups.
Third, individuals need to be able to take responsibility for managing their own lives, situate their lives in the broader social context and act autonomously. OECD,p. Even then, the focus was on fostering interaction, dialogue, mutual recognition and engagement with others, in heterogeneous groups.

In the workshop, language teachers from different educational levels and teacher trainers discussed their needs and challenges regarding the use of CLIL approach in the language classroom.
CLIL concepts and methods were presented and teachers reflected on techniques for achieving sustainability of results related to the integration of CLIL approach.

They shared their experiences with other participants and discussed what makes a successful activity.L'arte di argomentare - Stefania Giannini - [email protected]
Both days were a good combination of theory and practical tasks. The participants were encouraged to send project proposals to the Danish National Centre for Foreign Languages based on implementation of CLIL and a pluriliteracies approach for learning.
The National Centre organised a follow-up seminar on 3 June with participants to discuss their experience with CLIL and pluriliteracies approach six months after the training. Learn more about A pluriliteracies approach to teaching for learning here.

The opportunity to have a workshop run by ECML experts is always a great advantage for participants to learn something new and to enhance teaching skills and get more motivated in work. Although the target group represented various educational backgrounds such as in-service teacher training institutions, primary and secondary school teachers of English and other non-language subjectsthe particpants all benefitted from the content presented and the activities carried out during the workshop.

The workshops led by ECML are always of the greatest standards and value, so it is always worth applying for one! They became aware of the fact that the pluriliteracies approach enables teachers to facilitate deep learning across languages, disciplines and cultures for all learners, including those who do not speak the official language spoken in the school Greek, in our casethus enhancing their performance in the different subjects and acquiring a good command of academic language.To browse Academia.

Changes in teaching and learning practices are especially relevant due to the high dropout rates in secondary education and the recent PISA low-test results. SinceINDIRE has been carrying out research activities with the goal of identifying practices that could represent a disruptive and radical change in the traditional classroom pedagogy.
In particular, similar to the US studies on the impact of TEAL, Italian schools have pointed out that by using TEAL, students improve their learning experience and outcomes, feel more engaged, satisfied, aware of ICT pros and cons, and take more responsibility over their learning. Teachers remark that a TEAL-style pedagogy helps them work closely with their colleagues because the problem-solving approach forces them to rethink their subject curriculum.
Moreover, by using TEAL, the education setting is rearranged, the uses of technologies require making conscious pedagogical choices and flipping the classroom becomes more natural. Even if other publications describe the TEAL Model, this paper reflects on the positive results of its impact on the Italian school system, underlying strengths and weakness of the process of innovation in schools.

In several school curricula visual literacy is not supported or integrated in the different stages of life-long learning. In addition we discuss, through CLIL Content and Language Integrated Learning methodology, how drawings can contribute, as a part of visual literacy, to competencies development from childhood to adult education. Drawings were first means of communicating and writing human experience.
In the first stages of learning drawing-to-learn is associated to writing-to-learn, and children experience this communication tool for expressing and creating knowledge. During the following stages, drawing becomes a sort of personal talent, associated to artistic skills in the educational curricula.
In the last decades qualitative research and adult learning activities have explored and revealed opportunities of drawings, above all as reflective tools and active methods for expressing latent aspects of reality and to enhance life skills. Drawings can function and serve as stimuli that create a balance between cognition and embodied cognition.
However, in the last three years some authors have highlighted a new approach emphasizing their contribution as a part of visual literacy, which could support different learning outcomes both in the scientific field and in humanities.
