Tell me and I forget. Show me and I remember. Involve me and I understand. "Chinese proverb" "Lo escuché y lo olvidé, lo ví y lo recordé, lo hice y lo aprendí".
Pedagogical styles (innovation + practica) Theory of multiple intelligences (Kinaesthetic/active learning) (TESL I and II) The experience of Language Teaching (Senior, 2006) – Chapter 12 – The CLT approach & Student-centered pedagogy How languages are learned (Lightbown & Spada, 2006) – chapter 6 – 2 for 1 approach (c ontent-based teaching) and Let’s talk approach (communicative tasks) Experiences at university Inclusion Class (workshop with Sebastian Ròjo) TESL class (microteaching) Oral presentation class (protective character) Theatre class (peer presentations) Technologies class (Make it Happen!)

1. Experience 1. Experience — Doing the activity 2. Share 2. Share — Communicate results, reactions or observations 3. Process 3. Process — Analyze and reflect on the experience 4. Generalize 4. Generalize — Relate experience to a real world example 5. Apply 5. Apply — Use what was learned in a different situation 1. **Synthesis activity and Practica Source: David A. Kolbs, (1984) Experiential Learning: Experience as the source of learning and development
Student Learning: A- Traditional Lesson (Rag the dog) + evaluation of learning (Friday test) B- Experiential activity (Prep Rap) + evaluation of learning (Friday test) Student Behaviour(healthy habits) : Pre-test + Experiential learning lesson + Post-Test Student appreciation and sense of learning: Questionnaire asking for student preference and sense of having learned more effectively (traditional vs. experiential)
CANADIAN FOOD GUIDE ACTIVITIES True or false: statements on the CFG 3-day detailed meal plan Venn Diagram Text on benefits of eating well Concept map C3 evaluation: Does your lunch respect the CFG why? Discuss the benefits of respecting it.

POTENTIALLY INFLUENTIAL VARIABLES Prepositions spelling Time factor allotted to the lessons Incomprehension of test items Pre and post tests copying Seriousness of self-evaluation
CONCLU SION Experiential lessons lead to: Increased learning outcomes Positive and permanent behaviour changes in the students Better appreciation by the students A heightened perceived sense of learning (in 50% of the cases)
