Margie's insight:

This post was kindly donated by Annette. Avind Gupta's Fun Science Toys project uses trash to create toys for teaching about Science. It's inspiring and I think would be a great angle for future talks on CLIL, for teachers who are now looking for fresh ideas.

Film English

Film English | Insights and Tools 4 Teaching (1) | Scoop.it

 

FILM ENGLISH contains lots of short videos which can be exploited in the English language classroom. What's more, there are ready prepared lessons at all levels which can be downloaded for instant use. The levels and materials appear to fit well with academy set ups but can easily be adapted for other types of schools.  

 

Margie's insight:

Here's a great blog by Kiren Donaghy who teaches English at the UAB in  Barcelona.  I'd say it's one of the better resources I've come across in a good while!
