Edesign evaluation

Hello everyone!

In this challenge I had to choose one CLIL eProject and evaluate it; it is the time to use a rubric and become an evaluator!

I choose a blog developed by three students from last year. In my opinion is one of the best ones!

In my review I used the rubric given by our teacher @mjgsm and it reflects all the aspects that a good blog needs. Therefore, I can conclude that the blog I evaluated is perfect and has many resources and it is very funny to read it. I learn few things about their last year work.

I used to present my evaluation because it is a new webpage, created by Spanish developers and I think is really good, they can be improved, but it is fresh and original.

I hope you enjoy it and take a look their blog!

Developing an eProject!


I am developing an eProject! In this challenge we had to create a project where the use of ICT is essential.

Therefore, I want to spread why is it important to know what is around us and with this project I think we can learn more about our city and also about us. I tried to show that we move around the city, we walk through many places that we do not know anything about and they are important.

Here you have the clip of the idea, I have to say thanks to my technical support @Salvador1987lop that helps me with this record:

The video was edited with Wondershare Filmora, it is an easy tool to create videos. I recommend you to use it. The audio was made with an online tool where you can write a text and choose who is going to say it and in which language, and then you can download this record for free.

If I had to develop it in a class, I would do in this way:

This template was given by our teacher @mjgsm. It is located in Google Docs, one of the best online tools, it allows you to create and storage documents, files, etc. You only need a Google Account.

I hope you like this eProject and please buy it!

Good morning!
We had been asked to become content curator and create a webmix to have materials at hand at any time with the collaborative bank. I think is one of the most useful resources I found and I am going to continue using it, it is like a desktop but with your favourite webpages.
You can have it on any computer because it is an online resource and you can take your favourite tools everywhere with Symbaloo. It is easy to use, clean and colourful. Here you have my webmix, it will be improved along the year. I am not going to explain which CLIL resources I am going to use, try to discover them on your own and perhaps you would like them.
Enjoy it!

Pinterest board about CLIL

Good afternoon!
In class, we made a collaborative CLIL bank with Pinterest, you can visit it here Open CLIL board in Pinterest.
Sigue el tablero Open CLIL de Mª Jesús en Pinterest.

It is a great place to find and share things about everything. Also you can create a board like we did, where you can find since videos about CLIL till activities to do in class. It is a good and easy way to share and talk about a topic with a community, each of us add 6 resources, and now we have 180 resources in total, just shearing few things, you can have a big common knowledge bank.

License a blog with Creative Commons

I had licensed this blog and I chose to allow others to share my activities but they have to refer the origin I think that we need to collaborate and share things, that is why we live in a social community, but with my license, I do not allow others to earn money with my job.
It is easy to do and you can licensed your own work in this webpage You can choose the kind of license you want, and you only have to paste the embed code in your webpage or blog. You can see the result at the end of this blog.
This activity, that my classmates and I did in Master’s class, give us as teachers, the knowledge of which things we could use or which not, and what we should do when we use other materials that are not make by us. For children is interesting to show them that not everything upload on the net is free, there are people that work and create things that then they share but with license, so is our role to show our students to differentiate those resources and refer to it correctly.

Learning with and by Twittering

Twitter is a social network where you can find a lot of different people chatting about different things. In class we had to create an account and talk about CLIL, it is a good way to learn and read without getting tired, in 140 characters you have to express your ideas. Here is my tweet:


CLIL PLE/PLN mindmap

I started to know about CLIL at University, when I was finishing my degree, but my knowledge was not enough, that is one of the reasons that I wanted to do a Master’s in Bilingual Education. This year, one of the subjects, explains deeper the CLIL method and I think is fascinating, I am trying to learn more about it and read about this approach.
During a month, we are going to be in schools practicing and teaching and is the best place to see how this method works, that is why, when all classmates arrive in the afternoon to University, we start to talk about our impressions. Even on weekends, there are hundreds of whatsapp chatting about activities we can develop next week. It is funny and exciting be involved in a teamwork where you can share your opinions and have a feedback.
I want to show you my PLE/PLN, as you can see it is easy and simple, that is why I need to improve my knowledge about this area and grow up with it as a teacher. In few months I think it will be more complex, because is something that is always growing as my knowledge.


3, 2, 1... Introduction

I want to show you my presentation with; it is really interesting webpage because you can do an easy online presentation with many resources. For example, in the first slide you can see a video to introduce the presentation. In the next one, there is an audio made with this online web where you can write a text and choose who is going to say it and in which language, then you can download this record for free. But the file that you download is in .wav, and the emaze webpage does not support it, so I converted here the audio to .mp3. It is free and an online resource. In the next slides, you can see that I uploaded few photos, and also I made a quiz. You have the option to create links between slides and create a quiz. In the last slide I uploaded another audio that I found on internet, but I had to cut it because it was too long and I use this online tool
I hope you like it and try to use, it is an easy and funny tool to create original presentations. I think the only downside is that this webpage does not have a good mobile support, because I tried to watch it on my smartphone and the videos and the audio does not work.
Thanks for watching it!

Hello everyone!

My name is Álvaro Gómez Pecino and I want to start this blog presenting myself.
When I finished my studies at high school I knew that the field of education suits my. I am from Asturias and I started my degree in Primary education in Oviedo’s University and at the end I was so pleased with the studies, that I took an extra year and extra subjects, like First Aid in School and “Manejo del Comportamiento Problemático en el Aula Problemático en el Aula”. In addition, I enrolled on an adventure, I went to Scotland to improve my English and teach on a school. That was one of my best experiences in live and grew my up like a teacher. 
Finally, I wanted to do a Master’s Degree in Bilingual Education and I found one at Rey Juan Carlos University Carlos University that is innovative and has good subjects.
New technologies and CLIL methodology are some of my interests and I would like to improve them as much as possible to be better in the future.
This blog is an ePortfolio about the activities that we make in class and a excuse to start one and build something for my future in ICTs.
