She also shares some ideas on how to improve reading, writing, math and more through the CLIL and the activities of the Pearson Set Core Curriculum Team, which develops language skills alongside 21st century skills to help students succeed in today’s world. By understanding the cognitive and associative phases of language learning, students begin to learn a language independently, which is a great advantage for language learning as a whole. Continuing with the example of the food sector, an autonomous learning activity can be that a learner decides to follow a recipe in the target language using a vocabulary he or she already knows and using that knowledge to develop a new competence. Team Together offers language learning through exciting stories and activities, and challenges students to communicate creatively in authentic contexts, think critically and collaborate successfully. Teachers are involved at every stage of the learning process and are committed to providing our students with the skills they need to learn by themselves. This form of active learning is used in exam situations such as the oral part of an ETP exam for young students. Carol’s webinar is just one of many interesting, useful and informative sessions that have been part of the Spring Days program, which includes webinars on the Global English Scale, teaching teenagers, tips for adult students and the use of Pearson’s grades with his students. See here Carol’s webinar where she details how self-directed learning leads to test success. When your students can successfully demonstrate their skills in active learning before the test, confidence increases and anxiety decreases. According to Fitz and Posner psychology researchers, there are three levels of active learning: cognitive, associative and independent. The course outlines activities and examples in the Team Together course that help build self-reliance in the learning process. And they are able to make decisions about the learning process in terms of goals and strategies, qualities that are more likely to be successful in test situations. They develop critical thinking skills and are more likely to participate in learning activities outside the classroom.
