PEER TUTORING AND PEER TEACHING BY MEANS OF COLLABORATION AND COOPERATION EMPLOYING WEB 2.0 TOOLS

F. Maggi

ITIS "Cardano" (ITALY)
The talk I propose is based on the study and results of a “Leonardo” school innovation project (MESA: Meccatronics in Energy Saving. Three technical high schools in Italy, Croatia and Slovenia) which involves cooperation and collaboration among learners, peer teaching and peer tutoring in such a way to allow students develop learning strategies working well together while performing challenging and motivating tasks. In particular, this project involved the design and implementation of a system of electric charge through solar energy and the transformation of a car with a combustion engine into a car with electric traction. The students quickly realized the importance of being able to apply in practice and with a very stimulating activity, the theoretical knowledge acquired over years of study and turn them into real skills they can use in the world of work in the near future.

This talk will highlight how 18 years old students can become aware of their cognitive level enough to allow not only to exchange information with their Slovenian and Croatian peers (and vice versa) but also to teach and tutor foreign students using Web 2.0 technology. The talk also aims to analyze the different possibilities of using and exploiting Web 2.0 tools in order to promote cooperative CLIL experiences and to facilitate and improve schoolmates’ work.
