Abstract

The present contribution is aimed at describing one of the latest trends in the European school curricula: the teaching of subject content in a foreign language (CLIL), which is becoming more and more popular all over Europe, also bearing in mind the latest recommendations from the European Commission. Starting with a brief theoretical background on CLIL, the article focuses on OER (Open Educational Resources) and digital tools that have strongly changed and reshaped the educational landscape, offering a lot of opportunities for CLIL teachers and trainers. This scenario has also changed the interaction among teachers, building up virtual communities of practice aimed at sharing ideas and good practices for better quality teaching/learning. Some examples of these CLIL communities are provided.
