WIKI-Enhanced Scaffolding to Encourage Student Participation in a Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) Classroom
Lin, Chun-Yi
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Conferences on Education Technologies (ICEduTech) and Sustainability, Technology and Education (STE) (New Tapei City, Taiwan, December 10-12, 2014)
Given the fact that more and more universities stress on using English as medium to teach students with diverse backgrounds, the content and language integrated learning approach (CLIL) is now frequently introduced to faculty to support effective instruction and learning. Inspired by a CLIL workshop I attended, in which the instructor offered an overview of the framework and guidelines, this reflection paper discusses perceived local challenges in Taiwan (e.g., cultural barriers, limited time and resources for planning and assessment). To resolve these challenges, this paper proposes a scaffolding design of using wikis (in light of their collaborative and evolving nature to support participatory, constructive, and self-directed learning) in a local classroom. The findings from an initial implementation will be discussed in the presentation. [For the full proceedings see ED557181.]
