1 Testing Meeting Stavanger

2 The testing In two schools for children with special behavioural problems (primary and secondary) The testing was conducted by class teachers in October January 2010 The children had little or no knowledge of French

3 What was tested? The acquisition of names of foods in French in a fun/playful manner The increase in their awareness of other cultures

4 Which best practices were used? Speech bubbles and Divis (making videos and saying words in the foreign language) Eat (using ICT and working on the theme of food, eating and cultural awareness)

5 What did the children/adolescents do? They chose a recipe from the EAT website They cooked the recipe and filmed the project They listed the names of the ingredients from the website and repeated/recorded them They subtitled the video of the cooking They cooked a local recipe and made a similar video to send to the children in the other country (in English) and compared the two recipes to decide which dish they preferred

6 How did the experiment go? It was very successful in terms of motivation (the children enjoyed the practical tasks including the eating and didnt mind the language element, it was part of the fun) They enjoyed recording the names of food and making the video and subtitles and they were very proud of the results

7 Recommendations (1) This project needed a lot of organising from the leader (ingredients, shopping, facilities, equipment, cameras, computers etc) and is best for small groups of learners. The children needed a lot of help to edit their video and upload the result on the Internet (but they also had a lot of fun)

8 Recommendations (2) The idea of filming an activity in which a foreign language os also learnt can be applied to many themes (many easier than cooking!) Ex: ball games, hide & seek, society games, TV games/competition ideas or drama (acting a well known scenario, song, musical, murder story etc)
