Attention Secondary teachers of Italian!
If you’re looking for an exciting way to engage your students with the Italian that is all around them, you’ve found it! This competition, created by the Italian Studies department and RUMACCC at the University of Melbourne, along with CO.AS.IT and VATI, gives students the chance to look up from their smartphones and find written Italian all around them!
The Language Teacher Register has been developed by the Department of Education and Training (DET) to assist schools to source qualified languages teachers to fill vacant language teaching positions in government schools.
The Language Teacher Register is open to graduating, graduate and currently employed language teachers who are seeking a language teaching position in a government primary or secondary school. Eligible language teachers can register using the online form at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ltregister
Given that many schools commence planning for the staffing of their languages program for the following year during Semester 2, it is opportune to remind language teachers and schools of the availability of DET’s Language Teacher Register.
Additional staffing information is available on the DET website at http://www.education.vic.gov.au/school/principals/curriculum/Pages/languagestaffing.aspx
Private language schools in Italy equip their students with top-notch language skills in a very short time. But how? In this workshop Jenna Lo Bianco shares tips and tricks of trade to help you implement new and powerful teaching strategies to assist you in moving your students to success. Having undertaken research in the field in Italy on behalf of the International Specialised Skills Institute and the Italian Services Institute, Jenna will guide you through a series of easy to replicate activities to help you mix things up in the classroom – as the Italians do.

Grounded in the belief that student motivation and self-efficacy directly impact on student outcomes, Jenna’s work seeks to ensure that every single student can experience success in the Italian classroom.
Questa sessione sarà in lingua italiana.
Alcune indicazioni che emergono dalla ricerca universitaria, dalle politiche governative e dagli insegnanti segnalano la necessità di materiale didattico integrativo a quello curricolare per sostenere gli studenti nell’apprendimento dell’italiano.
In particolare, si lamenta il bisogno di strumenti che consentano lo sviluppo dell’abilità d’ascolto e incentivino l’adozione di una didattica multimediale.
Questa sessione offre due proposte elaborate dagli assistenti linguistici del COASIT (Melbourne). Oltre alla presentazione del materiale e il suggerimento di sue modalità applicative, si sottolinea l’importanza di attivare uno scambio dialettico tra COASIT e docenti al fine di implementare le offerte del materiale che sarà elaborato gli anni successivi e renderlo il più efficace e spendibile possibile in base alle specifiche esigenze delle scuole del Victoria.
