Letizia Cinganotto

Abstract


The paper aims at describing an online training initiative (Learning Event) promoted by eTwinning on CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) and technologies within an international community of practice. The discussion starts from a brief conceptualization of experiential learning with reference to teacher training for continuous professional development. Self- re ection on the learning outcomes and the added value of the experience in terms of competence development (referred to language, technology and subject content) are key issues.
After explaining the reasons why nowadays it is deemed essential to use technologies for CLIL and language learning, the paper will try to describe the processes of discovering, learning, experimentation and socialization activated in the participants during the training pathway, by mentioning some data from the surveys and by describing some digital contents produced by the teachers.
