Moodle  è una piattaforma di e-learning, cioè uno strumento didattico, con accesso ed utilizzo via internet, che supporta la didattica  e permette al docente di pubblicare e rendere accessibile agli studenti il materiale didattico delle lezioni, di pubblicare informazioni sul corso, di somministrare compiti/esercitazioni, test ed altro ancora.  Ho deciso di utilizzare questo strumento per svolgere il mio modulo CLIL sulla Green Economy perché rende gli alunni più motivati allo studio e perché, attraverso i test e i questionari proposti, favorisce l'autovalutazione.
