THE INITIATIVE PROMOTER’S PERSPECTIVE
The project was made to help students in their L2 learning process. Using French and English as a way of developing their creativity through performing plays.
There are many, most of them related to the development of the 8 basic competences established in Primary and Secondary education.
A contest was the excuse to have a great time celebrating the learning in a multicultural and multilingual framework of two foreign languages: English and French. Each year, a group of teachers reevaluated what have been done and made the necessary changes to improve it.
There is a clear consistency of the results with initial plans and with the expectation of the end users.
*There was a great deal of participation.
*From a provincial contest, it developed into a regional scenario in which all provinces from Andalucía took part
*Clearly, it was an original and innovative project, and many people followed the idea which can be transferrable in many ways, formats, and perspectives, depending on the time, materials and ITC you have.
Our initial expectations are just to learn much more from other people who are doing interesting really valuable projects. This is what we aimed to get from this experience.
It could spread and improve the project according to the resources we already have.
To keep learning, innovating and collaborating among areas of knowledge.
THE NELLIP NETWORK’S PERSPECTIVE
The project enhances quality of language teaching, due to the focus on speaking in a foreign language in public, encouraging student to develop their skills in a foreign language. It also helps to create communicative and intercultural bounds, focusing on evaluation of performance of language teaching and learning and recognition and validation of language skills acquired through performing plays in a foreign language, English and French.
The way of performing in English, make people to improve their knowledge in computer science if they want to create “special effects”.
People learn how to put in someone else’s shoes through drama. Everybody has to work as a TEAM in which if an element fails, the rest is “deeply touched”.
It promotes being helpful and teamwork: if people aim to improve their jobs, and it promotes cultural acceptance and intercultural bounds with the contents of the plays, as we used to have one category called: INTERCULTURALITY, clearly promoting multilingualism.
The project also focuses on a long life learning teacher training, and it also promotes new approaches to language teaching and learning using ITC when creating the backstage of the performances.
The project follows the lines of Common European Framework of Reference in language, creating teaching material for the learning of English, French, and other languages.
Language education through this kind of initiative helps students to feel self-confident when communicating and this self confidence will help them in the future to access better jobs.
