The License chosen by Teresa Martín

- What does your license lets others do with their e-CLIL materials?
 The license that I have chosen for my blog allows others to use my resources for non-commercial purposes.Also you can modify or adapt my resources, but the new material obteined should be shared under the same license and my authorship should be recognized too.

- What are good ways to motivate our students to use material Creative Commons and attribute correctly?
Sometimes we think that all the information available on the Internet belongs to everyone, but it is not always true. there are many resources and pages that have copiright and therefore we can not plagiarize or use in our classes as resources. It is important that we as teachers teach this to our students, we must explain to them that on the internet, there are public pages that they can use.
Performing the activities of the last block of contents of this subject, I discovered this page I encourage you to use it because it is a very good tool.

I´m a content curator

What is a Content Curator?
Until a week ago I had no idea about what it was but now I can tell you that a content curator is someone who "saved" interesting contents in an orderly way to consult them later.

The contents we had to save were those who publish on the board of which I spoke in my previous post.
As I was already a little familiarized with the use of Pinterest, I decided to investigate further with this tool and create my own board to organize my interesting contents.

I have selected some of the pins of my colleagues, they are very interesting and useful and I encourage you to see them on my board .If you like it you can follow it and so you will know all the news when I posted.

My viewpoints on the "Bank of Common Knowledge"

Today I want to talk about my viewpoints on the common bank of knowledge. For this activity, we created a board on Pinterest. On that board, we had to share resources, songs, videos, etc. related to CLIL approach.

It may seem a very simple activity because there are many resources on internet that we can check. The difficulty of the task was that the "pin" we had to share on the board should be "openly licensed". So there are many resources on the internet, but most of them have Copyright.

To search for my "pins"I used the web , It is a very useful website that seeks resources without Copyright and you can also choose where you want to search: google, youtube, flikr, pixabay, etc.
For me, it has been a difficult and hard job search, but I think it was worth it, because at the end we have built a very useful and resourceful board.

My PLE and PLN for CLIL

Hello everybody! 

This post is to show you my PLE and PLN for CLIL.PLE means personal learning environment while PLN means personal learning network.To do this work, I was researching and testing some apps that let you create conceptual maps and diagrams such as for example "Connected Mind" or "" but, following the advice of some classmates, I finally decided to use "Coggle" and I also decided to use this application because the previous two that I used werevery difficult to use for me.
With Coggle experience has been fantastic, it's a very intuitive and easy to use so you can learn to handle it quickly. Coggle has many colors, which serves to do more attractive your maps, if you want you can also include pictures in order to make more visually attractive your creation.Finally, and for me the best of the application, is that your creations are automatically saved so you don't have to worry about being saved every two minutes all the time.
About my conceptual map, which I called "My PLE and PLN for CLIL" I would say that has four main branches. The first "Search Information" refers to the tools I've used throughout my life to seek information or online resources. "Share and save Information" refers to the tools that I used to store information and share it with others. "Create Resources" refers to programs with which I create my own resources; and finally "PLE" includes tools are now part of my personal learning network.

I hope you like it and you find it useful.

Learning by Twittering

The vast majority of us currently have a twitter account. some people use it to share their ideas, their thoughts, to talk about their likes or hobbies, but we should know that twitter is also a great tool. On twitter, you can find many resources related to your profession that you may find useful.
Along this course, I will use my twitter account to share with you information related to education, to ICTs and also related to CLIL.
Here you have the link to my account and I hope you find it useful.

3,2,1, Introduction with Storybird

In this post I want to show you my 3,2,1, introduction and explain you what it is.

A 3,2,1, Introduction is a quick way to present yourself to others. The presentation should contain:
- 3 things we should know about you
- 2 of your favorite activities in the world
- 1 dream occupation you would have if you weren't in the field of education (or wherever you are)

To create a good 3,2,1 Introduction you have to choose a great tool. There are a lot of apps and webs on internet that you can use for this. My teacher gave us a list of applications to choose the one we wanted to create the introduction. 
From that list, I chose Storybird to create my artifact.
Storybird is a fairly intuitive and a simple way to create stories. It has a lot of pictures you can include in your stories and also you can create your own pictures if you want.

The main reason I chose Storybird was because I´m a story lover and I thought "what better way to introduce myself that through a story?"

It was great to create stories with the computer rather than drawing and colouring as traditionally done.
For me, as teacher, I consider it´s a great resource because stories have an important role in education and with this web you can create stories related to any topic or even your students can create their own ones to present any subject.
Other interesting fact allowed by Storybird is that, if you want (and pay) you can make your creations into real tales.

To conclude this post, I leave you my introduction hoping that you like it and It serves you to know how I am and how Storybird works:


Presenting Myself

Hello everyone! My name is Teresa Martín and you are welcome to my Blog!

This is my first post and I would like to use it to present myself:

Graduated in Infant Education teaching by Universidad Complutense de Madrid.
Religion teacher accredited by the archbishopric through the the DECA course realised in 2014 by Universidad La Salle de Madrid.
Working as educator in a Public Infant School of Madrid Community since 2015.
Actually I'm studying a master of bilingual teaching in the URJC.

About me:
I love my profession because I love children, they express thanks for the teacher´s job all the time and for me, this is the most gratifying aspect of my profession.
Tales are my best hobby, I have a lot of tales related to many infant topics such as for example emotions or animals among others.
Now I´m discovering the amazing world of CLIL and also learning about ICTs, discovering online resources and tools to improve my knowledges about the topic.

This is the first time I create a blog, and by the time, I have not too much knowledge about blogs, but I hope to improve it day by day. Nevertheless, if you have any suggestions or comments to me about the blog, or about the posts, you can leave a comment on the board and I'll be happy to read it and learn from it.
