25 Jul 2019

As every year, the innovative teaching practices being developed by schools all over Spain will be showcased at SIMO EDUCACIÓN, the Educational Technology Fair organised by IFEMA in partnership with EDUCACIÓN 3.0, which will be held from 5th to 7th November 2019 at Feria de Madrid.

From among nearly 200 initiatives received, the jury has selected a total of 30 experiences from all educational levels and on very varied topics that address, among others, methodologies such as gamification applied to various subjects and gamification in the form of escape room or break out, among others. Numerous STEAM projects in maths, science, robotics and programming have also been submitted. Similarly, the jury has valued the originality of video games made by students, 3D design projects, or applications for social inclusion. The selection also includes cooperative learning initiatives, assessment methods and socio-emotional education for students with tools such as mindfulness in the classroom.

The selected experiences will be presented during the three days of SIMO EDUCATION, as 30-minute talks. They will all be candidates for the 7th Awards for Educational Innovation to the Best Innovative Experience, which will be judged soon, and which are a special recognition for teachers who contribute to transforming education.
