Musei come luoghi ideali per l’apprendimento integrato di contenuti e lingua fuori dalla classe
Dalla ricerca sul CLIL al progetto MILE (Museums and Innovation of Language Education)
Research has long shown that the CLIL methodology can have a positive impact on students' linguistic, emotional and cognitive development. However, very few studies have explored the effects of implementing CLIL outside the classroom. In this chapter, we will discuss the potential of museum experiences for CLIL teaching and describe the pedagogical model that can be applied to build bridges between CLIL in the classroom and at the museum. In doing so, we will draw on the research and training experience of the MILE (Museums and Innovation of Language Education) project which, under the supervision of Prof. Coonan, has opened the doors to fruitful partnerships between the university and the cultural and educational community at both national and international level with the aim of bridging the gap between language learning inside and outside the classroom.
