Scuola di Lingua Italiana a Firenze

Imparare l'italiano? Facciamoci un Film

8 giorni di laboratorio scrivendo, recidando ed imparando italiano divertendosi!

Firenze, 6 Giugno 2011
di Cristiano Sanna

Imparare una lingua facendo un film è un nuovo metodo, divertente e motivante, per apprendere una lingua straniera sviluppato nel nostro istituto. E’ stato utilizzato nel nostro workshop finanziato dal programma Grundtvig (Agreement Number 2010-1-IT2-GRU13-12506) ottenendo risultati al di sopra delle aspettative.

Il workshop, da titolo "Learning Italian through Movie Making"  ha avuto luogo dall’ 8 al 15 maggio 2011. Hanno partecipato 15 persone, diverse tra loro per provenienza, età ed educazione scolastica. Nel corso di una settimana, lavorando tutti insieme, hanno portato a termine il compito di creare un cortometraggio in lingua straniera. Al termine del workshop, i loro commenti sono stati unanimemente entusiasti: “tutto era ad alto livello. Imparare e recitare è stato molto interessante e divertente…ho trovato questo workshop la più bella esperienza della mia vita” scrive una giovane ragazza polacca. “La metodologia del workshop è molto appropriata”, continua un partecipante della Germania; e ancora: “Il workshop era bellissimo, il migliore cha abbia mai fatto in vita mia”. “Sono stata piacevolmente sorpresa dal risultato raggiunto dal workshop” è invece il commento di una partecipante romena.

L’uso del metodo "impara una lingua creando un cortometraggio" nel workshop ha mostrato in modo evidente i suoi principali punti di forza, motivare e stimolare persone completamente diverse per età, cultura, educazione. Ha anche confermato la sua alta flessibilità, avendo permesso a persone con livelli linguistici molto diversi di migliorare, lavorando tutti insieme.
Ma il miglioramento delle competenze linguistiche non è stato l’unico risultato a cui ha contribuito il workshop. La continua interazione tra i partecipanti ha anche permesso di conoscersi, di stabilire rapporti interpersonali di stima e amicizia e, come naturale conseguenza, di conoscere le diverse culture ed i diversi paesi di provenienza dei colleghi. E’ proprio questo, forse, il migliore risultato di questo workshop. Sicuramente, il risultato che lo staff è maggiormente orgoglioso di sottolineare.

Creativity in Language Learning

LIFELONG LEARNING PROGRAMME/LEONARDO DA VINCI PARTNERSHIPS

Creativity in Language Learning (CiLL)
Agreement Number: 2010-1-DE2-LEO04-04747 2

Creativity in Language Learning is an international partnership, funded with the contribution of the Leonardo da Vinci Program. 
Main objective of the partnership was to improve the quality and effectiveness of foreign language teaching by testing, adapting and implementing creative methodologies. The methodologies involved are story telling, drama pedagogy and movie making. By the end of the project the partners have created guidelines for integration of these methodologies in educational practices. 
Furthermore, the partnership aimed to raise the awareness for the importance of lifelong language learning and creativity in educational practices.

In order to reach these objectives, during the 2 years of the project we have fulfilled the following tasks: 
- share knowledge about creative methodologies,
- implement workshops at transnational meetings to present and teach the theoretical background and the technical skills needed to apply the creative methodologies (with active involvement of learners and trainers),
- test the creative methodologies in daily work of the participating trainers,
- evaluate the testing in partner institutions,
- summarize the findings, experiences and evaluation of each partner (national) and of the partnership (international),
- create guidelines for the integration of the three methodologies,
- disseminate information on the project and its outcomes.

Involvement of trainers and learners e.g. in the framework of the testing period has been at centre stage of the project and has ensured that the outcomes will cover their needs.

NewGen50+

European Union, Lifelong Learning Program – Grundtvig Learning Partnership
Agreement Number 2009:1058

The New Generation: 50+

Summary
The learning partnership "NewGen50+" aims to elaborate a training needs analysis according to the requirements, needs and wishes of senior citizens 50+ and, subsequently, make a comparison of already existing training offers by implementing a research study in all partner countries.

The general background
The increasing ageing of the population is a topic of current importance that most European countries have to face. In the near future, most citizens of Europe will be over 50 years old, which will affect both economical and social life. New challenges will emerge to keep them socially and educationally active in order to avoid social exclusion.
Therefore, the partnership considers it important to focus on this target group and deal with the problem from the perspective of general adult education as well as that of the target group itself.  

“It is important to keep seniors active in terms of social as well as educational activities.”

Consequently, the partnership topics will also include learning motivation and openness to new things. The learning partnership aims to work directly with the target group, senior citizens at the age of 50+.
Good and bad practice collections from different European countries and bilateral visits shall make an active exchange possible, which will allow all participants to benefit from each other’s experiences.

The project period
1.8.2009 - 31.7.2011

Short Project Description
The project "NewGen 50+" is funded by the action Grundtvig Learning Partnerships within the framework of the Lifelong Learning Programme.

The increasing ageing of the population is a topic of actual importance that most European countries have to face. In the near future most citizens in Europe will be over 50 years old. This will affect the economical and social life. New challenges will occur by keeping them socially and educationally active to avoid social exclusion.

Therefore the partnership considers it as important to focus on this target group and deal with the problem from the perspective of general adult education as well as from the perspective of the target group itself.
The learning partnership aims to elaborate a training needs analysis according to the requirements, needs and wishes of senior citizens 50+ and then make a comparison with already existing training offers by implementing a research study in all partner countries.

The learning partnership will involve the staff of adult education organisations and senior citizens in general to build the basis for the development of new approaches and pedagogical methods according to the needs of both groups. Good and bad practice collections from different European countries and bilateral visits shall make an active exchange possible hence all participants can benefit from each other’s experiences.
