TELL ME MORE. CONTEXTUALIZING AND EXPANDING ECONOMIC TERMINOLOGY IN THE CLASSROOM

Nowadays new technologies are more present than ever in our modern society and the classroom is no exception. In this respect, a great deal of complementary activities are made possible by the use and integration of digital instruments or electronic devices in education. In particular, mobile phones can introduce a dynamic element in the traditional classroom in order to help acquiring, conveying or strengthening academic contents (Anshari et al., 2017) and to promote the teaching-learning interaction.

This project aims to combine the learning process of certain economic concepts -studied in Spanish as part of the subject of Macroeconomics in the Business Administration and Management Degree- and the teaching of their equivalents in English using ICT tools.

For this purpose, the students are required to watch a series of video sequences in English -mainly interviews, press releases and films within the financial and economic field. After watching these short sequences (2 to 5 minutes) the students will have to answer a test in order to demonstrate the right understanding of the economical concepts and the corresponding terminology in English. The test will be projected on the screen and answered with the use of Kahoot, a game-based learning platform, which allow students to play the quizzes with their smartphone or tablet (Ferrandiz et al., 2016). Afterwards, the teacher revises the terminology both in English and Spanish, solves doubts, and corrects possible mistakes.

The main objectives of the present activity are:
- Underlining and increasing the use of ICT in the classroom
- Transferring economic and financial knowledge in Spanish and English
- Identifying main terminological and linguistic difficulties in the field of Economics

This project is based on an open pragmatic approach and has a true transversal objective, in so far as it implies the participation of University lecturers of two different areas - Business and Languages. This research focuses on the potential benefits of integrating ICT in schools as a means to develop new useful strategies both for teachers and students.
