Ana Marques, profesora de visual y plástica y tecnologia.

Este curso aporta la oportunidad de mejorar y practicar docente a partir de la puesta en práctica de actividades y técnicas metodológicas en el aula que fomenten la creatividad y el aprendizaje por tareas. Por otro lado, es una oportunidad para comparar las enseñanzas en diferentes países, especialmente ligadas a la asignatura de visual y plástica, para intercambiar ideas y desarrollar vínculos con profesores de otros países europeos, de manera que nos sirva como  nueva inspiración para el docente en la enseñanza en el aula.

La actividad de movilidad en el centro IPC comenzó el 25 de octubre de 2015 y terminó el 7 de Noviembre.
