Upskilling, lifelong learning and co-creating: key driver in the society of innovation

Upskilling, lifelong learning and co-creating: key driver in the society of innovation

by Cristóbal Cobo
          Widespread access to digital technologies has enabled millennials to access, create, share, and disseminate new knowledge in innovative and diversified ways. Today 21st century learners can work together in virtual environments by conducting online collaborative practices. Two relevant dimensions that have been deeply affected by the emergence of the current digital landscape are new facets of knowledge generation and new models of knowledge circulation and distribution. Despite the potential transformation of these novel practices and mechanisms of knowledge production and distribution a significant transformation will take place only if a new set of skills and practices are adopted by educators and learners.

Talking to learn: learning to talk. CLIL for all in the multilingual school

TALKING TO LEARN: LEARNING TO TALK. CLIL FOR ALL IN THE MULTILINGUAL SCHOOL

by Itziar Elorza
          This talk will highlight the need for a general language enhanced education approach in the multilingual school, defending that the Content Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) perspective should be shared by all the teachers in the multilingual school, no matter the language used.
          We will focus specially on oracy skills related to academic achievement, trying to prove that dialogue is not only a must to ensure appropriate language development in any language, but is also a key tool for the construction of knowledge, which depends strongly on verbalizing one’s own ideas and confronting them with others.
