Looks potentially useful for collecting and  learning phrases, idioms, etc. but haven't played with yet.

If you are looking for specific, but new phrases to use, this may be of interest to you.  People collect their own phrases, idioms and collocations and use them in sentences to show how they are used. It's much like a vocabulary list, but instead of words, there are phrases.

I believe that the role of the teacher is really beginning to change and technology has a large part to play in this. Students now have access to lots of additional information on the internet and via e-books as well as through many resources. Therefore the role of the teacher is to help students make use of all this additional information.

Gianfranco Marini's curator insight, February 6, 10:17 AM

Articolo di Gianni Marconato pubblicato su Folio.net, anno 3, numero 5 e dedicato al problema di come sviluppare le competenze attraverso compiti autentici. Si tratta di un articolo scritto in modo molto chiaro e comprensibile, a differenza di tanti altri dedicati a questi argomenti, ma ch enon risulta per questo banale.
Ne suggerisco la lettura a tutti coloro che fossero confusi su questi problemi, tra cui annovero anche me stesso. Infatti l'articolo fornisce un quadro teorico efficace nel qual inquadrare competenze e compiti autentici.

 

STRUTTURA ARTICOLO

L'articolo è composto di tre parti:

 

1. Le competenze, queste sconosciute
In questa prima parte si cerca di fornire una definizione di competenze, le ambiguità di questo concetto ma senza rinunciare alla sua complessità e ricchezza:
# Si parte dalla definizione del parlamento europeo, piuttosto povera e schematica, per cui le competenze sarebbero il momento applicativo di conoscenze, abilità e capacità
# integrandola con la definizione di Gut Le Boterf che ne sottolinea il carattere contestuale, la dinamicità e sistematicità, la doppia valenza "di processo" e "di prodotto".
Personalmente ritengo che tra momento teorico e attuativo concreto, quindi tra conoscenze astratte e competenze operative, non vi sia un rapporto causale per cui le prime determinano le seconde, ma un complesso processo di retroazione continua. Ritengo anche che questa concezione risponda meglio agli sviluppi delle scienze cognitive e ai modelli di intelligenza proposti nell'ambito delle teorie della "Mente Estesa", dell'intelligenza incorporata (embodied) e dell'intelligenza situata (embedded).

 

2. I compiti autentici per le competenze
Molto interessante la stretta conessione che viene individuata tra "sviluppo delle competenze" e "compito autentico". In questa parte della'rticolo si sottolineano:
# i vantaggi dei compiti autentici
# le condizioni alle quali questi si traducono in apprendimento significativo
# le caratteristiche cognitive dei compiti autentici
# il rapporto tra compiti autentici e contenuti disciplinari

 

3. Come identificare e sviluppare compiti autentici
In quest'ultima parte si cerca di rispondere a una domanda che molti docenti si fanno quando sentono parlare di cpompiti autentici e/o di realtà: come diavolo faccio a tradurre contenuti, concetti, problemi, etc. della mia disciplina in termini di compiti autentici? Marcontato da indicazioni preziose per chiarezza ed efficacia:
# far lavorare gli studenti come esperti di quella disciplina
# sfruttare come spunti gli eventi che si verificano a scuola e intorno alla scuola

Vengono però anche riconosciute (una volta tanto), le difficoltà che il docente si trova ad affrontare quando affronta queste situazioni, senza quella spocchia ministeriale o da fondamentalista dell'innovazione che, a mio modesto parere, caratterizza l'atteggiamento dell'autore verso i docenti.
