With the quick development of technology in education there has come a fervent need for applying different assessment techniques regularly whether formative or summative ones. Yet, what kind of assessment should we use? Thus we would like to help the attendees to work online through their mobiles or ipads to share in applying different apps to see how easy it is to use them and apply them at their schools.

CLIL – Content and Language Integrated Learning - is a "dual focus" methodology, fostering the development of language competences and the delivery of subject content at the same time.

It referes to the learning of a curricular subject in a foreign language, with great advantages in terms of students' learning outcomes and cognitive processes.

CLIL is spreading more and more, as an integrated part of school curricula in many countries. In order to implement this innovative approach, the role of teacher training is essential.

This EVO session is aimed at spreading CLIL methodology, combining teaching strategies and technical tools and eliciting reflections and discussions among teachers from all over the world. It is important to share good practices from the different countries and learn from other colleagues through synchronous and asynchronous web meetings.

Webinars with national and international CLIL experts will be a highlight of this session.
