Bank of Common Knowledge

It was my first time participating in a Bank of Common Knowledge thanks to our teacher Mª José who created a board in Pinterest to our Master class in order to share useful resources of CLIL.

First of all, I searched and checked out the Playpen for useful places to find Open Educational Resources proportioned by our teacher. I found it very interesting as I could find different multimedia interactive resources: audios/sounds/tracks, video clips and animation , images, links, online activities, games, plan lessons, crafts, and different tools for creating digital artifacts which I consider that will be very useful to plan CLIL lessons. Then, I chose 6 links that I consider suitable for me and my peers and I shared it in the Pinterest board. Of course, I took into consideration that the resources were Creative Commons Open Educational Resources.

Pinterest is a social network which allows you to share and comment on visual material, such as photographs, plans, videos or web pages. You can collect the items that you love. There is no copyright in the world of Pinterest, you can attach images from other people’s web pages, or repin content from other people’s boards. What is more, sharing content from other people is actively encouraged. It is a social activity of interaction and sharing and gaining followers, rather than keeping your own work for yourself. It is very advantageous as when you Pin to select pins from a web page, the pin automatically includes a link to the source web page, so you can remember where you found it, and other people can go to the source as well.

What an amazing idea! Only by a small contribution of everyone of us we now have wide selection of useful CLIL resources to use:

These were my 6 contributions:

To finish my post I would live to show you my last contribution which is a craft made by myself:
By Lola Berral. This model making offers a wide range of different materials and ways of using them and lets children develop their creativity. Creating a model of the ocean allows children to visualize a part of the earth’s surface they cannot actually see and experience firsthand which is very enriching for a CLIL activity. Therefore, it is a good way to learn the ocean floor features and ocean habitat.:
