IES Las Banderas
Background and Experience
Brief description on the School/Organisation:
IES LAS BANDERAS is a public school of Secondary Education, placed in El Puerto de Santa Mª, Cádiz, in the South of Spain.
In the previous years the school was dedicated to primary education, but now it covers from 12-15 years old students.
This year has got approximately 125 students distributed in four levels (1º ESO- 4º ESO). In general, they belong to middle-class.
The school has got two main projects, among others:
- The bilingual project: it belongs to the bilingual project since 2009. It means that subjects such as Geography, History, Maths, Art and P.E. are taught in L2 (English language).
- Tech- school (in Spanish Escuela TIC): It means that we use technologies in many aspects of our teaching labour and we encourage students to use them as much as possible.
Activities and experience in the areas relevant for this project and
Skills and/or expertise of key persons involved in this project:
Our school use technologies in every lesson and subject. First of all, all our classrooms have got a digital board. Every teacher uses it to show the students PowerPoint presentations and they are also very useful to use Internet.
We use several techniques to encourage our students and to store all their production in L2. On one hand, we have created a web in the Moodle platform through which students can send us all the projects related to any topic they are studying.
On the other hand, we use Google Drive to work with them the E-Portfolio. We have created personal files to store all the students work and when they finish the year we give them a kind of “passport” where they can see the level they have reached. This practice motivates them a lot.
So, we can say, that I.E.S. Las Banderas has got big experience in using technologies in our daily work in education.
Our experience makes us to be eager to go on learning new technologies and how to use them with our students.
