This is an innovative educational resource that uses the advantages of digital technology to provide a streaming educational experience in the classroom. Thanks to different tools and digital support materials like videos, photos, music or 3D reconstructions, these innovative virtual sessions are 100% interactive and tailored and offer a lively, profound and attractive narration.
They are designed both for private connections of students at home in a non-classroom educational model, and for connections with the classroom if the class has the infrastructure for screen projections in a hybrid educational model.
All these pedagogical masterclasses have been programmed so that they can be integrated into the school curriculum of the secondary and high school education cycles.
We propose a broad, comprehensive and flexible itinerary that can be adapted to the level of each group, thus being a perfect complementary activity to the ordinary classes.
