Vocabulary Notebook: A Digital Solution to General and Specific Vocabulary Learning Problems in a CLIL Context
Bazo, Plácido; Rodríguez, Romén; Fumero, Dácil
In this paper, we will introduce an innovative software platform that can be especially useful in a Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) context. This tool is called Vocabulary Notebook, and has been developed to solve all the problems that traditional (paper) vocabulary notebooks have. This tool keeps focus on the personalisation of the learning process as a key element, but it also provides the advantages of technology, solving paper-related problems and providing additional multimedia features. Moreover, we will describe the current state-of-the-art in the implementation of CLIL (using Spain as an example) and afterwards we will discuss the benefits that this digital tool provides in a CLIL context. Nowadays, teachers are worried because they devote too much time to the teaching of CLIL vocabulary and not to the application of those words in social tasks, which are a way of consolidating knowledge and key competences at the same time. With Vocabulary Notebook, we will show how this problem can be tackled in a very successful way. Vocabulary Notebook is currently being used for educational purposes in more than 127 countries by more than 17,000 individuals, as well as several educational institutions around the globe.
