Aula Innova - looking back on life in the 19th century

When Gloria Huerta decided to implement the iTEC's 'Tell a story' with her students, she wanted to do an inter-disciplinary project, to measure student competences and skills in a number of areas.

For the project, teachers Gloria Huerta, Araceli Catón and José Carlos Sánchez and their Year 8 class decided to create comics which illustrated the differences between life in the 19th and 21st centuries. During the project, students used online tools such as Mindomo and TeamUp, used their audio-visual skills to build narratives, improved their English-language skills, and used the class blog to reflect on their progress. The students also received from feedback from outside experts, including from Marta Herranz Calvo, a past-pupil of the school who has studied History of Art.

The project was carried out with iTEC partners Promethean and Innova&Educación. The class blog is available to view here (Spanish language).
