Hello everyone,

Digital skills are very important for getting a job. Do you know DigCompEdu?
Teachers must develop their digital competence to face the new and rapidly changing demands.

This stunning interactive infographic created by Balbino Fernández shows us G-Suite applications such as Gmail, Drive, Docs, Slides, Sheets,  Maps, Calendar, Tasks, Classroom, Keep, Blogger, YouTube... which I have been using with my students for ten years to help them acquire and develop their digital competence. When we started we hung this globe from the ceiling and a cloud with a message: "Welcome to the cloud, welcome to the new world".

It's fun to play an instrument. Virtual concert.

Hello everyone,

How are you? I hope well in spite of the difficult circumstances we are living now.
Look at these students, do you know them? They can play different instruments.
They played some songs for their classmates during the lockdown and they got a big virtual round of applause. We all feel proud of you because you are brilliant musicians.




Sergio Can play the piano, Irene can play the violin and Erika can play the flute.
What about you? What can you play? What is your favourite instrument?

If you don't play any instrument, why don't you have a go in your school or village?
Is it difficult to think of the rhythm of the piece, the notes and the sound at the same time?

What type of music do you like playing?
This is Sant Joan where I live. Last Saturday students from the Music School performed.
If you like Queen or Abba you can go to 1:06 minute.

Which QUEEN songs/tracks can you recognise?
Which ABBA songs can you identify? 
I love this ABBA track called "The winner takes it all".
