Ilpo Halonen kommentoi HS:n uutista englannin suosiosta kouluissa

Englanninkieliseen aineopetukseen siirtyminen parantaisi muiden kielten mahdollisuuksia koulujen kieliohjelmassa. Ylivoimaisesti suurin osa englannin ja muidenkin vieraiden kielten opetuksen ajasta menee sanaston oppimiseen. Miksi opettaa englannin tunneilla reaaliaineiden asioita, kun sama voidaan tehdä aineopetuksessa? Englanninkielistä sanastoa opittaisiin oikeassa yhteydessään ja järkiperäisemmin kuin kielitunneilla.

Sujuvan ja korrektin englannin oppiminen vaatii paljon. Sanaston opettelun siirtäminen englanninkieliseen aineopetukseen vapauttaisi aikaa erityisesti puhumisen opiskeluun. Ääntämiseen, puhumiseen ja kielen oikeellisuuden varmistamiseen tarvittaisiin epäilemättä nykyistä enemmän panostusta.

Englantia ei opeteta nykyisin enää samoin kuin muita vieraita kieliä. Englanti on kansainvälistymisen yleiskieli, ”lingua franca”. Opettajat ymmärtävät sen ja tekevät parhaansa antaakseen oppilailleen mahdollisimman hyvät eväät englannin osaamiseen. Näin tekisivät varmasti myös aineopettajat, jos heidät siihen velvoitettaisiin ja koulutettaisiin.

Olisiko englanninkielinen aineopetus eduksi vai haitaksi muiden vieraiden kielten opetukselle? Mietitäänpä! Esimerkiksi lukiossa englannin kursseja suoritetaan 50 – 100 % enemmän kuin muiden vieraiden kielten kursseja. Jos aineopetus olisi englanninkielistä, englannin kielen kurssien määrä voitaisiin vähentää samaan kuin muissa vieraissa kielissä, koska sanaston opettamista ei enää tarvittaisi englannin tunneilla aiempaan tapaan.

Eihän näin suurta opetuksen muutosta ole missään toteutettu, huokaisevat monet. ”Content and Language Integrated Learning” on totta mm. Hollannissa, jossa CLIL -opetus aloitettiin 100 koulussa jo useita vuosia sitten. Ei muutosta Suomessakaan voitaisi tehdä yhdessä yössä, sillä siihen tarvitaan luonnollisesti jonkin verran opettajakoulutusta. Mutta Suomen aineopettajien nykyisilläkin englannin taidoilla CLIL olisi mahdollista aloittaa varsin monissa kouluissa.

Nykyisellä vieraiden kielten opetuksen järjestelmällä menetetään muissa vieraissa kielissä enemmän kuin voitetaan leijonan osan vievässä englannin opetuksessa.

English abstract

An explanation in English: other languages lose as English takes more and more from language lessons in schools. I propose CLIL, Content and Language Integrated Learning, because it liberates lessons for other foreign languages and focuses also English teaching on speaking, pronunciation and grammar. Vocabulary can be learned better in CLIL lessons.

Instagram and Zimilate

Quite many of my friends and acquaintances were active in Instragram, so I couldn’t help joining :-).

Zimilate  is another new application I thought I want to try. I am active in social bookmarking, but I also need a service that collects not only web pages to be shared but also materials that I want to keep mostly for myself. Zimilate allows me to send practically any kind of content to the inbox of the app. Orgaizing things should not be too challenging either.

Let’s see how systematic and careful I can be with the digital contents I want to save and archive.

Deadline for Erasmus+ course applications was postponed to March 24

The prolongation of the submission deadline gives you one week more time to apply for Erasmus+ courses of Euneos in Spain and Portugal. What you can choose, are courses for Social Media content curation, didactic tablet use and internationalization of schools. Beside these, there are Best Practices Benchmarking courses in “PISA” Finland and Estonia. All courses, see http://www.euneos.eu/?page_id=302. Euneos, the course provider, gives careful tuition to applicants how to fill in the application form in accordance to your school development plan. Contact mail@euneos.eu.

Following the difficulties that organisations have been experiencing in particular with the Participant Portal over the last period and although no technical blocking problems exist anymore at this point in time according to our knowledge, the deadline of 17 March 12:00 midday has been postponed until 24 March 12:00 midday (Brussels time) to give applicants more time to finalize their application.
http://ec.europa.eu/programmes/erasmus-plus/index_en.htm

This prolongation concerns the following actions managed by National Agencies:

KA101 – School Education – staff mobility
KA102 – Vocational Education and Training – learner and staff mobility
KA103 – Higher Education – student and staff mobility
KA104 – Adult Education – staff mobility
KA105 – Youth – mobility of youth workers and young people
KA108 – Higher Education – Accreditation of Higher Education Mobility Consortia

Submissions in this period will be marked with the flag “LATE” in the application forms. However, applicants should not worry: even with this flag, applications submitted until 24 March 12:00 midday (Brussels time) will be considered as formally eligible with regard to timely submission.

Options 12 months or 24 months in Erasmus+ application

This is important information from Euneos to all applicants for Erasmus+ courses 2014-2016:

–  At this phase you do not need any acceptance letter or mandate from Euneos. After approval of your courses by NA, let us know all the info about your approved courses, dates, locations, teachers ect. We have capacity to organize as many courses as needed so that all accepted teachers are welcome to participate in Euneos courses!

– If your aim is to have all your courses during 12 months, (e.g. during 15.9.2014 – 14.9.2015) then it is wise to choose 12 months. But if you want to participate in courses also in late autumn 2015 (October-November 2015) and/or in spring 2016, then you have to choose 24 months. It is possible that now in the first round it is easier to get the grant than next years, because there will more schools making applications. But it is impossible to predict.

– If you choose Euneos courses for 2016, you can mention about the same dates than 2015 spring. The exact dates for 2016 have not been decided yet. If there will be applications for those days, we will agree on them with participants after approval.

Finalize your Erasmus+ application, remember declaration of honor by the head, be in time!

Image

Euneos organized four different videoconferences for applicants of Erasmus+ courses last week. There were 20 seats for every session. They were fully booked. There are some important comments below that we emphasized during the sessions.

Now that there is only less than one week left for sending the application there is still enough time for those who are very quick and know what their school/insitution needs to keep up with the development of education, There are some bottle necks when writing the application. I refer here what Ludo Mateusen, one of the most experienced trainers and assessors of EU projects and courses tells us:

1. The challenge is that you have to demonstrate as detailed and concrete as possible why more than one teacher is  going  to attend the  course and what you  are going to learn and how and you  are going to implement the learning outcomes  at school level
You need to convince the assessor that it is important to meet the needs of the school (School development plan) that the selected teachers attend the course.

2. If you are with 5 teachers, you can select all six topics of the course adding them in point I. Impact of the project
Please, focus on the selected topics and try to explain why they are important for your school.

3: Please write the application on the e-form according to the actual needs of your school . Be specific.

4. Make sure you have everything ready before the weekend. Especially the scanned declaration of honor of the principal and submit everything BEFORE March 17th

BTW, some applicants were confused about what I wrote in my advice to them: “ … the application form it is only possible to apply for benchmarking courses in Finland. So please don’t try to put a name of another country into the form, just Finland.” This does not mean that you could not add other courses in other countries into the same application. It only means that you only mention Finland when you apply for 5-days benchmarking courses. There is an option to make an excursion to Tallinn Estonia on the last day of the course. But it doesn’t mean that Estonia should be added as a target country of benchmarking courses.

BTW, do you know about our Social Media Master Class course? Write to mail@euneos.eu to get quick response and all supportive material you need for applying please!
