Creativity in language learning
Start date: 01 Dec 2011,

Emotions and feelings are often kept out of language courses, as if learning involved only the rational part of an individual. As a consequence, the learner does not feel involved and often has only a passive role in the learning process. The project CREALLE is based on the assumption that creative, less conventional devices such as drama, songs and video are very effective methodological tools in language teaching and that they can target different audiences, from children to adults and university students, being thus consistent with the objectives of the transversal programme. The project mission is thus: collecting and defining a series of methodological tools that show the effectiveness of creative learning both for junior and adult learners and spreading these to a maximum target group of MFL teachers and trainers. In this regard, the project plans: - to preliminarily assess the transferability of the products and outputs of the 4 CREALLE target projects through participatory national matching sessions and to select the best national 'creative' practices; - to collect and provide information on project results via a web-site available in Italian, English, French and German, two newsletters and a special issue of the periodical 'Scuol@Europa', published and available in the aforementioned languages; - to organize an international event (a two-day conference in Brussels) that brings projects and potential users together within the sector concerned, thus promoting the transfer and take-up of project results by new users and mainstreaming into education and training systems and practices; - to organize a Teacher Training course to be inserted on the Comenius/Grundtvig database addressed to all the in-service teachers/trainers in MFL interested in using these methodologies in their classes, thus creating a network of trained foreign language teachers that could apply these innovative methodologies, developing and adapting them to their educational practices.
