Participant´s Feedback


Friday was our last day. These days have passed so quickly!

We devoted this day to the final report of the visit. We decided to do it all together in the Regional Teacher Training Center for languages. It was tough to summarize all the ideas but in the end we enjoyed working on the report together.

We would like to thank you all for your collaboration and excellent mood. We'll never forget this experience!


After our daily breakfast we took the bus and went to CEIP Kantica in Arroyo de la Encomienda. There our study visit was received by the principal, Jose Luis Sagredo. It was a fantastic experience as the school had organised an India Day in which some members of the Valladolid India cultural centre organised several activities for all the students and for our foreign teachers.

Children learnt Indian expresions, their culture and their typical dances. It was great fun!

After that, we went to the CFIE Valladolid teacher training centre where we interacted with the Regional ICT teacher training and resources centre through a video-conference. This centre is located in Palencia that's why we did it that way.

We learnt about the on-line courses, their on-line magazines and the resources they generate. It was quite instructive. Thank you Julio Javier del Campo, headmaster of the ICT Teacher training Center.

Then, we headed to have lunch. Later on we went back to the hotel to relax a little bit and wait for the official Dinner with the authorities that organised this Study Visit.




On monday we went to Peñafiel High School IES Conde Lucanor where the principal showed us a video about the teacher training activities thy were going through in their school plan and about the two innovative projects: The creativity project "The Wall" and the Ipad didactic project "FORMapps". The principal prescribed us his famous "Creativity pills"

Later on, we were led to THE WALL where some of the students explained the exhibition "The rain" which they made for our visit. It was wonderful to see the rain of bulbs with water inside, the video installation and the tree decoration. It was a great effort and we do appreciate it.

Adter that, we went to the FORMapps ipad classroom where we couls attend a music class by Cesar Caño and the educative use of Garageband. It was great to see the methodology they used and how tablets can help as amotivating learning factor.

After a visit to the town, the castle and the Bullring square, we went to have lunch to alejandro fernández hotel where we had a great lunch and Alejandro Fernández toasted for a white wine.

Finally, we went to Valladolid teacher training service where they attended the Aulas Aeuropeas classes.

 After this long day, we went back to the hotel. It was a wonderful day!
