OS INVITO A PASAR UN DIA CON SHAKESPEARE Y CERVANTES

Y como se que a los que "estáis" aquí no os faltan ganas de hacer cosas nuevas os dejamos esta invitación a una actividad que se va a realizar por primera vez en el CFPI, lógicamente por primera vez porque es la primera vez de los 400 años...(lol) pero por primera vez por el formato de la misma. Os animo a que os apuntéis.
El curso 400 years playing (with) Shakespeare and Cervantes incluye ruta y muchas actividades para clase...
Informad a vuestros compañeros de Inglés y Lengua (nivel B2 de inglés)

IES Las Salinas de Valladolid.



Hoy miércoles 16 de marzo, dos asesoras del CFP Idiomas, tuvimos la agradable experiencia de compartir la observación, dentro del Proyecto de Innovación OBSERVA_ACTION, con el equipo de profesores del IES Las Salinas de Valladolid.

Draw my life app


Interesting resource to use in class


Draw my life app

This is a great idea to read, write, draw, but above all, to speak in a multi-task exercise. Multiple intelligences are used here and students can cooperate or do it on their own. 

EXTENSION:Here is one about Shakespeare which you can use as an example and ask them to do it about Cervantes' life, or any or Shakespeare works they have read.



 









According to Wikipedia, "Draw My Life is a type of Internet video that began in 2013, following the upload of a video from YouTube celebrity, Sam Pepper.
The videos are shot in fast-motion photography and consist of someone drawing figures on a whiteboard, which represent events in the person's life.Often, the videos reveal previously hidden upsetting or unfortunate histories or stories, and end in the author thanking their audience for aiding in their success.

In December 2013 a Draw My Life video making iPad app was released on the App Store called Draw My Life App. "

Reflections during the job-shadowing

El IES Emilio Ferrari ha publicado este post en el BLOG TEAM 2 TEACH
Aquí os lo comparto. Muy interesante.
Gracias IES Emilio Ferrari






El CEIP LOS ARÉVACOS y el CEIP LA MORAÑA de Arévalo en Ávila UN TANDEM PERFECTO
¡Que fantástica experiencia!
Seguimos aprendiendo mucho unos de otros. Gracias a esta experiencia seguimos dando el máximo y «going the extra mile» incluso ahora a final de trimestre. Ya tengo varias cosas que quiero aplicar en el módulo AULA ACTION: usar un «timer», muchos juegos, estrategias de «classroom management» y una gran aplicación TIC llamada «class dojo» que ya tengo preparada para empezar prontito.            
En definitiva me alegro mucho de haber tomado la decisión de participar. 
Adjunto vídeo de uno de los juegos y 1 fotillo
Ánimo chicos y observad y no perdáis detalle.

INTERESTING REFLECTION ON BENEFITS OF JOB SHADOWING




Have you observed other teachers around your school? 

What benefits were you able to get out of the experience? 

Tell us about it in the comments below!

By Jordan Catapano. He  is an English teacher at Conant High School in a Chicago suburb. In addition to being National Board Certificated, he also sits as the District Leader for the Illinois Association of Teachers of English and serves as a school board member for a private school. 

 One of the best and most easily accessible ways we can witness other approaches to teaching comes from the colleagues at our schools. We share our teacher-to-teacher relationships with these colleaguesin the offices, copy machine rooms, and cafeterias. But these fellow teachers are often rich resources of perspectives, experiences, techniques, and materials that we fail to take advantage of.
Here are the top five reasons we should definitely take the time every school year to watch other teachers in our building to learn different approaches to teaching:
  • Interactions. Every teacher interacts with students in unique ways. Which teachers are inspiring, encouraging, positive and fun? Which teachers have that special way of working with kids that can truly make a difference? You don’t have to witness what these teachers teach; you only need to study how they teach.
  • Standards. You set your own standards for academics and behavior with your students, but what do other teachers do? Observing others gives you a chance to see if your standards may be too high or too low, and what other teachers do to set those standards with their students.
  • Lessons and Materials. Why reinvent the wheel? No matter what you’re teaching, someone else has already taught it. Snag a few good ideas, activities, and materials from others who might have just the approach you needed for your next unit.
  • Inspiration. It’s important to have someone around you whose behaviors are reminders to you that such a way of life and achievement can in fact happen. Hang out around those colleagues who inspire you to become a better version of yourself.
  • New Perspective. Sometimes experience and routines can work against us when we’re so entrenched into doing things “our way.” It is refreshing to see that learning can be just as effective from a different approach, and it ultimately makes us more versatile as educators.
One of the critical steps in the path of self-improvement involves becoming a student of those around us. Even though it requires extra effort and time that we ordinarily don’t have, try to take advantages of opportunities you may have for observing your fellow teachers in action. Follow these steps to ensure you get the most out of your observations of other teachers:

1. Identify the specific areas you’d like to see how others do things. These areas can be related to teaching specific material, prepping students for exams, organizing a classroom activity, or even just generally interacting with the students.

2. Identify the colleagues who have some of these attributes that you would like to witness. These can be individuals from your same discipline, but consider what observing teachers outside your discipline will yield. Talk to them in advance and set up a time that would be mutually convenient for you to be a guest in their classroom.

3. Come prepared to their classroom ready to take notes and watch for specific attributes you’d like as your “takeaway ideas.”

4. Have a follow-up discussion with the other teacher where you can ask questions and receive insights regarding their philosophy on what you witnessed them doing in the classroom.

5. Observe the same teacher multiple times, or watch a series of teachers.

6. Reflect on what you observed. What did you see that you would like to emulate? What were they doing that seems particularly effective?

You want to make sure that you have a humble heart when you observe other teachers. You’re not going into their classrooms to critique them or to find out what you’re better than them at. You’re doing this to learn!

Regularly exposing yourself to other talented, passionate educators helps you to more fully understand yourself as a teacher. When you take what others are good at and apply it in your own way with your students, magnificent results can occur. Then, it may not be long before other teachers are asking to watch you!

PRESENTACIÓN: LA OBSERVACIÓN COMO HERRAMIENTA DE FORMACIÓN




¿Y QUÉ HAGO YO DE ESPECIAL EN MI CLASE? 


A menudo los docentes consideran su trabajo como tarea sencilla y creen que tienen poco que ofrecer a la comunidad educativa y a otros profesionales de la educación.
En la enseñanza, como en el resto de profesiones, todos podemos enseñar y aprender.
La frase de  "yo no hago nada del otro mundo en mi clase"  es  nada más alejado de la realidad.
Lo que para ti es obvio puede ser sorprendente para otro, y por eso me gustaría compartir este vídeo en el que de manera muy sencilla se expresa  esta idea.




#OBSERVA_ACTION permite a los docentes poder compartir sus aulas para que a través de la observación y el diálogo podamos llegar a reflexiones enriquecedoras sobre la práctica en el aula de idiomas. El tener la oportunidad de ver "en directo" es una experiencia única ya que pasamos de la "teoría" a la "práctica" sobre espacios reales.
