Description of the activity
In the recent years we have seen that many schools have opted to include English in subjects such as mathematics or science, which has been effective in improving the competence of students in both areas.Throughout this process of implementation of these practises it has been generated a theoretical framework from different research and experiences, in order to ensure effective development and quality.This course provides a methodological basis for CLIL (Content Language Integrated Learning) and ICT resources (research, mind maps, presentations, audio and video editors…) always related to the different aspects presented.
This course will be done in English and it is not only addressed to English teachers but also to all educators interested in discovering a new and effective methodology.
