Sara Isabel Montoya Tobón


This article describes the results of a pedagogical experience project that was built in a differentiated educational platform that allows educators and students to create together the way of teaching and learning processes. Using the subject of Arts throughout the classroom pedagogical project together with the English language, students of fifth and sixth grades were able to develop multiple task-based activities in order to create their own short film from the basics of motion, drawing, animation and filming, and working on their imagination to come out with a unique story about the Space. Furthermore, this project was directed towards a common aim of finding a sort of answers to a question that students had about the universe and it became as a means of education to apply CLIL approach.
