Frequently Asked Questions

The Projects

The name of the projects comes from project #2 – Plurilingual Pedagogies, which is a SSHRC Funded French & French Immersion Project. We created ESCAPE from

Enseigner les SCiences Aux élèves PlurilinguEs

We also feel that Binogi allows learners to escape from their classroom into a new world – exploring STEM contents in a language familiar to them!

The three pillars are:

  • Integrating digital pedagogy
  • Language friendly pedagogies
  • Entry points for parental & community involvement

Teaching Packages

The three pillars of the resources include strategies on:

  1. Language friendly pedagogy;
  2. Binogi as an online learning tool; and
  3. Entry points for parental & community involvement.
  • These resources have been created to provide a resource for Grades 6, 7, 8 and 9 teachers as a strategy to incorporate online learning tools such as Binogi in their daily lessons to promote student engagement in classrooms :
    • Technology-enabled practice is increasing student engagement and student output—they want to learn more, and do more” (Ontario Ministry of Education)
  • While the lessons apply to all learners, the resource offers equitable strategies and tools to include language learners.
  • Each lesson has been designed to invite parents and community members to actively take part in their child’s learning. This results in:
    • Extending students’ learning beyond the classroom by inviting conversations about math/science
    • Transparency in regards to what students are learning at school

Each resource is organized in a three part lesson format as recommended by the Ontario Ministry of Education

Teachers can use these resources in the following ways:

  • To try out in your classroom exactly as they are 
  • As a blueprint – to think about how you will structure your lesson, using a 3-part framework

 

  1. Choose a topic: For example, electricity.
  2. Find an associated Binogi video which supports the class material. https://app.binogipilot.ca/l/le-reseau-electrique
  3. Reflect on how and where you will incorporate the video in your lesson plan.

We have included one example of a package for your reference:
