Colegio viajero: 66216 km en un día

El martes día 29 de noviembre se celebró la jornada mundial de Skype para las Aulas. Dentro de este contexto, los alumnos del colegio estaban tan motivados e implicados que hicimos una Maratón real. Intervinieron alumnos de Secundaria y Formación Profesional.

Con todo esto la Maratón fue un éxito, para ser la primera vez que participamos. Tras un largo e intenso día de conexiones internacionales y charlas con alumnos de nacionalidades muy distintas y después de “haber recorrido” un total de 41145 millas .

Qué opinan los alumnos? A mis alumnos: os pido comentarios, para ver si merece la pena repetirla.
