CLIL: something new, something old or something borrowed?
New arrival in the field from the EU and its name is CLIL. What is it? Why should we bring it in our classrooms? How do we go about implementing it? Does it work? The session will provide some answers to the above, as the programme has been running for four years in the 3rd Model Experimental Primary School of Evosmos and will provide practitioners with techniques and ICT tools used by the speaker in her effort to implement CLIL with nine-year-olds in Environmental Studies.
