Bank of Common Knowledge

Good morning everyone!

This cold and windy Sunday we’re going to talk about the collaborative bank of CLIL knowledge that we’ve created on Pinterest. We were required to find at least 6 resources which can be used at the bilingual classroom. However, that isn’t all! Those resources must be OERs, what does it mean? They’re Creative Commons Open Educational Resources, resources that can be shared and used for different purposes on the net.

Well… But, how did I do it? First of all, you have to bear in mind that those resources must present the Creative Commons license (what we where talking about on the last post, if you didn’t see yet, click here). However it could seem a bit desastrous looking for the resource that suits most with you and then, checking for the licence… What will happen if it doesn’t allow you to share it?

To make it easier, we were provided with a list of different OERs resources creates by María Jesús García San Martín in Listly. Here you have them all: 

Now that we know a bit more of OERs resources we can try to search on the net new ones. Let’s go for an advanced search in Google. Don’t you know how to do it? Look at this video!

Once that it’s clear, everything is going to be easier! Don’t you wanna try?

Following those steps it was how I found different resources to share with my peers in the collaborative bank of Common knowledge. Here you have my six resources:

In this wikispace, both CLIL and ICT work together! Art, Geography, History, Maths, Science… Whatever you want is here!

ScienceandEnglish si a easy and funny website where teachers can find many activities and materials ready to be used at the CLIL classroom. You can search for what you want in different categories (animals, body, food, senses, prepositions, etc).

This one is a digital library of free-to-use Teaching and Learning Content. “Combine text, images, sound, videos, or supplemental materials into resources you can share and remix with your colleagues and educators around the world“.

As I am from Andalucía I knew about these materials. The Regional Ministry of Education in Andalusia proposes a wide range of lesson plans planned through CLIL methodology. The main purpose of those materials is to be downloaded and carried out at the bilingual classroom.

This online tool will allow you to upload and download many different sounds which can be modified and altered according to your purposes.

LACLIL is a really useful journal where many experts and educators share their knowledge about CLIL methodology. Although this one is not basically about CLIL materials, there you can find lots of information which is necessary to be known by the teacher.


I hope it can help you! See you on the next post 🙂 🙂
