Recursos y propuestas para trabajar el inglés en infantil

Desde el pasado martes y hasta hoy se celebran en el CEIP El Romeral de Alcoi las jornadas Recursos y propuestas para trabajar el inglés en infantil.

La primera sesión estuvo protagonizada por Daniel Verdú, maestro del CEIP Doctor Calatayud de Aspe y por Isabel Coloma, del CEIP Costa Blanca de Alicante. Daniel ofreció una conferencia dinámica que desde un marco teórico propuso y ejemplificó numerosas actividades para motivar, enseñar y aprender inglés en edades tempranas. Isabel abordó el tema de la conciencia fonológica y el camino hacia la lectoescritura y aportó su amplia experiencia en la gestión de la clase de inglés de infantil.

Durante la segunda jornada contamos con Daniel Martínez, del CEIP Alfonso X de Novelda y con Jenny Davidson, estudiante de Filología hispánica y catalana de la Universidad de Sheffield y lectora de infantil en dicho colegio. Daniel cuestionó a las y los participantes a través de su reflexión sobre modelos de aprendizaje y adquisición de lenguas extranjeras. Se ofrecieron interesantes pistas para conseguir libros en inglés y recursos efectivos para la motivación y el comportamiento adecuado en el aula como Class Dojo además de algunos otros recursos interesantes: El blog de Espe, Englishtips.org, etc. Jenny comentó su experiencia como lectora y algunas diferencias entre los sistemas educativos en Inglaterra y en la Comunidad Valenciana.

El último día participaremos como ponentes Juan Rubio del Colegio Sagrada Familia de Elda y yo desde mi asesoría de plurilingüismo del CEFIRE de Elda. Por mi parte, presentaré algunos de los recursos interesantes para el profesorado de inglés de infantil que pueden encontrarse en la red, muchos reflejados en este blog, y Juan, después de sentar unos fundamentos y directrices sobre el aprendizaje del inglés en la etapa, mostrará diversos aspectos de su práctica en el aula.

Historypin

Historypin is a way for millions of people to come together, from across different generations, cultures and places, to share small glimpses of the past and to build up the huge story of human history. It has been developed by the not-for-profit company We Are What We Do, in partnership with Google. 

Historypin is made up of photographic images, videos, audio clips and descriptive and narrative text.Photographic images can be pinned directly to the Historypin map by users. These images can be of any location - outdoors or indoors - at any time in the past. Some of these images, if they are taken outdoors, at street level and at certain angles, will be able to be layered onto Street View (this is a bonus, not a requirement). Audio and video content can be pinned to the map by users. These should be pinned to the location and date where they were recorded. 

It can be used as a PBL tool to explore time periods, the human experience and the passage of time... or to construct students' own narratives.

Inauguramos el blog por lo que se refiere al curso 2014-2015. 

En primer lugar esperamos que la vuelta a la actividad esté siendo positiva, a pesar del calor y que hayáis disfrutado de las vacaciones y recargado las pilas para el curso que se pone en marcha.

En segundo lugar, tenemos bastante interés en recordaros un par de actividades de formación en el ámbito del inglés, aparte de aquellas sobre competencia lingüística de alguna forma centralizadas a través del Servicio de Formación del Profesorado y que tendrán lugar en las distintas Escuelas Oficiales de Idiomas.

La primera de estas acciones está orientada hacia el profesorado de infantil y consistirá en unas jornadas desarrolladas en Alcoi que intentarán reproducir los contenidos de las ya realizadas en Elda a principio del curso pasado. Estas contaron con una gran acogida y mucha gente expresó el deseo de repetir la experiencia en otras localidades del ámbito del CEFIRE. Tienen el código 14EL76EI268 y se denominan Recursos i propostes per a treballar l'anglés en infantil y tendrán lugar entre los días 21 y 23 de octubre de 2014.

El segundo curso, semipresencial, se titula Elaboració de materials AICLE. Educació Primaria y supondrá un acercamiento a la metodología y los recursos enfocado directamente a la elaboración de unidades didácticas AICLE para Ciencias Sociales, Ciencias Naturales, Educación Física y Educación Artística. El código del curso es 14EL76IN285.

Ambas propuestas todavía cuentan con plazas libres. Os invitamos a que os informéis sobre ellas en nuestra página y os inscribáis si las consideráis de interés.
