This course will help participants better understand the role functional and academic language plays in the CLIL class, where the focus will be on developing learner communication, identifying the language demands involved in the CLIL classroom, describing parts of speech and grammatical structures. Participants will analyze existing materials and identify the subject- specific language & functional language needed for the success of that lesson.

La gamificación es una metodología donde se pone en práctica los elementos del juego dentro y fuera del aula de clase. La mayoría de los docentes asocia la gamificación con simplemente jugar o llevar actividades lúdicas para la clase, pero la gamificación no es sólo eso. Jugar es solo una característica de esta metodología. Algunos piensan que para gamificar la clase es necesario saber de programación o de informática y esto tampoco es necesario. Este micro-curso va dirigido a docentes que enseñan una lengua extranjera y se pretende presentar una metodología que puede o no involucrar las TIC, para gamificar una clase, un contenido o la materia completa y de este modo hacer clases más dinámicas, que despierten la motivación en los alumnos y sobre todo tener un aprendizaje más significativo en los estudiantes.
