Collaborative Learning Project Geography & History

Web Collaborative Learning Project Geography & History

This new revised webpage tries to make each activity clear in one poster. The project started in 1983. It was funded and supported by the Inner London Education Authority, and was part of the teacher action research that led to the Oracy Project and the Language in the Curriculum Project. Both LINC and the Oracy projects were closed down for political reasons in 1993. Collaborative Learning survived because it is a teacher owned network. Everyone is welcome to join, and we are pleased to now have colleagues joining us worldwide. Activities to promote talk take time to make, but by sharing them, we hope to inspire others to work in similar ways. Now that talk is once again beginning to be recognised as a priority and recent research is even more supportive of its vital part to play in learning, we are slowly expanding our network and increasing the number of activities on line. We have a mountain of activities in paper form developed in the 80s an 90s. We are revising these to meet new curriculum needs and making them available. We wanted to provide interesting and creative ways for children to learn in classes, where many different languages were spoken, and where children were learning English while learning. Our aim is to provide examples of group talk activities that will benefit all children, while at the same time provide scaffolding for learning English. Collaborative activities are vital for children learning English, but at the same time other learners benefit in many ways.

Lascaux: A visit to the cave

Flash Lascaux: A visit to the cave

The discovery of the monumental Lascaux cave in 1940 brought with it a new era in our knowledge of both prehistoric art and human origins. Today, the cave continues to feed our collective imagination and to profoundly move new generations of visitors from around the world.To celebrate this prehistoric wonder, the French Ministry of Culture and Communication’s is pleased to present its latest multimedia publication – an update of the original Lascaux website, which was first put on line in 1998. The new site has been entirely reworked in both form and content, reflecting the latest advances in archaeological research.Visitors to the site are presented with a three-dimensional digital version of the cave, which allows them to go from room to room, completely immersed in the site. As they travel from the Great Hall of the Bulls all the way to the Shaft of the Dead Man, they can stop at each of the many images, read descriptions, play video sequences and examine overlay lines that helpfully reveal some of the more difficult to identify figures. A zoom feature enables visitors to get as close as possible to the walls that these talented artists decorated.

Documento de texto An artistic trip: from Reinassance to Modern Times

Most of the tasks and activities to be found in this unit have been designed to be used with 15-16 year-old learners (4th of ESO, roughly A-2 level of the CEFR). In any case, the authors have gone to great lengths so as to ensure that all activities and tasks: provide learners with motivating content; – create a positive learning atmosphere (a community of practice); – cater for differences in students’ learning styles and intelligences; promote cooperative learning; involve students in peer and selfassessment; integrate ICTs –especially when it comes to homework; have a sort of built-in consciousness raising mechanism to make learners focus on form.
