AMELIS - Multimedial Environments for Linguistic and Intercultural Education in Primary School
The project AMELIS aims to address in an innovative way the learning of Italian as second language and English as Foreign Language by creating a synergy among the foreign children who learn the Italian language and the Italian pupils who learn English.
The learning environment was characterized by the use in class of the interactive and multimedia blackboard that, through a notable internet connection, made it possible to use various digital resources. The project involved 10 primary schools in the regions of Tuscany and Umbria. All schools were characterized by a considerable percentage of foreign students in the classroom.
Pupils could definitely improve their language competences, their communication skills and also from a cultural point of view they could benefit more from being faced with cultures different from one's own.
