This blog has been designed to provide information about the activities held at the social studies bilingual sections in CPI Tino Grandío (Guntín,Spain). The English language and Social Studies teachers have elaborated most of the resources you can see but our "auxiliares de conversa" also have their own page and posts. Therefore everyone is invited to have a look .

New eTwinning Project: Call Me Maybe

This will be our new eTwinning project for this school year 2015-2016:


Partner schools

  • Gimnazjum nr 23, Poznan, (Poland)
  • CPI Tino Grandío, Guntín, Lugo (Spain)
  • Tryškių Lazdynų Pelėdos gimnazija (Lithuania)

 Short description
Our students using different methods will enquire about the usage/importance of their mobile phones (frequency, applications, texting, phone calls, etc.) and constant feedback will be received from the partner schools.

Communication languageEnglish

Age range: 12-16

Number of students

  • Lithuania 12
  • Spain 11
  • Poland 12

 Subject areas

  • cross-curricular
  • ICT- information and communication technology
  • maths
  • European studies
  • foreign languages

 Tools to be used

  • mobile phones/iPhones/smartphones
  • computers – computer room
  • online polls
  • questionnaires
  • e-mail
  • social networks
  • blog
  • project diary

The final aim is to create a newspaper and/or online blog in which students can put all their articles about mobile phones trying to get a critical perspective of their importance and usefulness for European teenagers.

Work process
The students from our schools will decide on the aspects to be dealt with and then they will try to enrich the monthly topics created with their descriptions, charts, photos, sms language, etc.

They will make at least one survey about phones that can help to answer various questions from what are the favorable means of communication with friends and parents to what appliccations they prefer in their mobile phones. Students will collect data using different methods: questionnaires,  interviews, group work.

Communication will take place either using the Twinspace (forums, chatroom) or using social networks. If this last option is chosen, a common hashtag will have to be used. (very good)

Expected results

  • An increase of cooperative skills and competence.
  • Better ICT competence.
  • An improvement of our students communicative competence in English.
  • A critical view of our use of technologies.
