The working method of school El Pinar is based on the application of information and communication technologies to the learning process. In this sense, the digital content created and shared by the students themselves, are the basis of our educational model. We talked about an innovative, efficient, participatory and environmentally friendly system, as it means a significant saving over traditional systems that continue focusing activity using paper. This system also connects students with the tools of technological work from the primary stages, adding value to the learning process.
The implementation of this model leaves the traditional textbooks with complementary role in teaching activities. However, both in Bachillerato and in the first year Primaria, we use text books to teach the subjects that are part of the official academic curriculum.
In these cases, the school selects the books needed for the development of work in the classroom. At the begining of the year, the school provides a list with the books required for each subject.
For a better organization, the center facilitates the acquisition of complete batch for each course. The final list will be available in Secretary from July. The books are delivered during the first week of September.
