Ponte dos Brozos

Educational area

Developed in collaboration with the city council of Arteixo (A Coruña), for over a decade the Ponte dos Brozos Project made it possible for students and teachers from secondary schools in the area to participate in a comprehensive international training programme, which facilitated the implementation of new educational practices linked to opportunities made available thanks to technology.

This methodological update was accompanied and supported by the installation of new technological equipment in the classrooms: a base infrastructure of Wi-Fi networks and servers was created, computer stations were set up in nursery and primary school classrooms, each student was given a laptop in secondary and compulsory secondary education and electronic boards and projectors were put in all the classrooms. The Ponte dos Brozos project went beyond the purely academic realm by creating a public centre in Arteixo offering services related to technology and computer skills training.

Currently, the educational centres linked to the Ponte dos Brozos Project are leaders in the use of technological tools at schools and they have a faculty recognised on a national level for their contribution to designing innovative teaching techniques.
