@ectel2015 Using MOOC and CLIL with 16 - 17 year old students instruments & set-up

Just arrived at the EC-TEL conference in Toledo, Spain. And finalised a second set of slides together with my colleague Kathy Demeulenaere (GUSCO), focusing on a project set up by GUSCO school (k12) to integrate MOOCs into CLIL lessons.

The overview paper is available through Academia here. And sharing the abstract:
In this HybridEd workshop paper the authors will share a pilot project that combines Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) with external (i.e. not self-developed) Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) to en-hance LifeLong Learning (LLL) skills in a blended learning environment (MOOC and classroom). The target population of this project consists of upper secondary students attending those secondary school curricula that normally result in college or university entrance. These upper secondary students follow a MOOC of their own choosing. Their MOOC learning performance in terms of language use and digital skills is monitored via generic lifelong learning rubrics and teacher-student mentoring
The slides are in a beta form of course, as we will reflect upon them in the next two days. The presentation will be on Friday 18 September in session 2 of the HybridEd workshop - 5A from 17.15 - 18.30 in the La Mancha room (if I am correct?) and ... I must say I like La Mancha, any connotation with the wonderful Don Quixote is energizing.

Have a look at the slides, they contain links to instruments as well, so might be nice.
