1.2 Nuove proposte didattiche del COASIT per sostenere l’insegnamento e
l’apprendimento dell’italiano
Abstract
Questa sessione sarà in lingua italiana.
Alcune indicazioni che emergono dalla ricerca universitaria, dalle politiche governative e dagli
insegnanti segnalano la necessità di materiale didattico integrativo a quello curricolare per
sostenere gli studenti nell’apprendimento dell’italiano.
In particolare, si lamenta il bisogno di strumenti che consentano lo sviluppo dell’abilità d’ascolto
e incentivino l’adozione di una didattica multimediale.
Questa sessione offre due proposte elaborate dagli assistenti linguistici del COASIT
(Melbourne). Oltre alla presentazione del materiale e il suggerimento di sue modalità
applicative, si sottolinea l’importanza di attivare uno scambio dialettico tra COASIT e docenti al
fine di implementare le offerte del materiale che sarà elaborato gli anni successivi e renderlo il
più efficace e spendibile possibile in base alle specifiche esigenze delle scuole del Victoria.

1.3 & 2.3 Making Learning Visible in Languages
Abstract
This workshop will explore some simple strategies for taking pain out of gathering assessment
data on learner progress. We will explore how a task and rubric can be designed to allow for
self, peer and teacher assessment using the SOLO taxonomy, and we will look at how creating
higher order thinking skills activities can allow us to see the learning which often remains
invisible.

1.4 & 2.4 Classroom activities to stimulate students
Abstract
Using my experiences and training, I bring practical activities to the workshops that encourage
and engage students while promoting the acquisition of language through enjoyment.
Students acquire knowledge using different learning styles. It is important to keep this in mind
when introducing games and activities and this is the basis of my workshop. Games and
activities provide an opportunity for all students to engage and learn in a fun and non
threatening environment.

1.6 & 2.6 Inquiry Teaching and Learning in the Languages Classroom
Abstract
Many primary schools in Victoria use an inquiry approach to teaching and learning. This is a
very exciting approach to learning, and reflects how young people naturally learn, but can seem
difficult to implement in one hour a week with students just beginning a language. This
workshop will provide an understanding of inquiry, and will look at how we can incorporate some
inquiry methods into the Italian Classroom, in simple and effective ways. This approach to
learning is engaging and effective with students of all ages, and we are seeing a shift in this
direction in education in Australia.

2.2 Progettare percorsi di apprendimento: questioni teoriche e scelte
operative
Abstract
Questa sessione sarà in lingua italiana.
La costruzione di materiale didattico rappresenta una componente fondamentale
dell’insegnamento ed è un’operazione piuttosto complessa.
Per sottrarre l’elaborazione del materiale all’improvvisazione o all’intuizione individuale, è bene
compiere alcune riflessioni metodologiche e affidarsi a modelli consolidati e validi.
Proponendo spunti pratici ed esemplificativi, in questo incontro si rifletterà su come progettare
percorsi di apprendimento linguistico per trasformare l’input testuale in acquisizione e
incentivare l’output comunicativo.

3.3 & 4.3 Getting them talking
Abstract
A few years ago we surveyed our Year 9 students to find out which skill they believed was most
important in learning Indonesian – reading, writing, speaking, listening or cultural awareness.
From this survey we found that the majority of students wanted to be able to speak the
language. In response our teaching team developed strategies that promote speaking
Indonesian in class more regularly and this has shaped the way we teach - subsequently
Indonesian enrolments in elective Indonesian have also increased. This workshop is out of your
seat interactive as participants can try out some different activities to 'get them talking'. The
activities are mostly generic and can be used in any LOTE class.
Presenter
Steve Rogers
Steve Rogers has been teaching Indonesian since 1995, initially in a primary school and since
2001 as in the secondary system to VCE. He has presented workshops at VILTA conferences
and MLTAV State Conferences and the style of delivery is lively and interactive. He is
passionate about the teaching and learning of languages and is interested in trying new
approaches in the classroom. Steve is especially interested in developing resources to assist
the process of teaching and learning. In 2015 he developed an iPad app called Hidden Pics
which is aimed to improve recall of vocabulary; initially developed for Indonesian, this app is
now available in Italian and Spanish.

3.4 & 4.4 Laboratorio: L’arte dell’ascolto
Abstract
L’ascolto è comunemente percepito come l’abilità linguistica in cui si incontrano le maggiori
difficoltà. In questo laboratorio si parlerà di quali strategie e approcci sono consigliati per il
miglior svolgimento di questa attività in classe. Come possiamo aiutare gli studentI a non
bloccarsi di fronte a questa percezione del non capire nulla e come servirisi di risorse già
disponibili per la classe.
