What the High School "Lope de Vega" did (Tasks)
On the one hand, the center has increased the number of available ICT equipment and promoting its good to use in the field of education and that students and teachers can improve and achieve higher levels of cooperation and satisfaction during the educational period .
In addition the center through its website http://ieslopedevega.es/ reports all the various practices that perform as well as individuals and departments that make up the center. So that parents and students interested should consult the information they need at all times.
On the other hand, the micro documentary project is a new way to integrate the use of ICT in the field of education and in improving accountability and the creative process of the students. Since this project promotes both cooperation between groups of students doing different documentaries micro since the field work is done mainly outside the center which is also necessary to have the consent of the legal representatives (parents or guardians ) so the involvement of the family also has a high importance.
As mentioned above projects are going up the blog created for this purpose http://microdocumentales.jimdo.com/ First advance innovative methodological approaches such as project learning, use of ICT, assessment rubrics and cooperative work. Secondly we intend to connect the curriculum with daily life, so that the contents can be studied and understood to relate to the world around us and the reality of the students
What the High School "Lope de Vega" achieve (2nd Review)
The use of ICT has involved a number of positive changes in this center, which now has its website with basic information about it.
As the project analyzed, this is his blog, which offers students and families need to participate and learn first hand what the project and their participation in the project, as each group will choose a family to evaluate your project . As each group has to develop a blog post with your project and compliance with the requirements in both the date of publication of the registration and content. For all these details in the blog itself is a archivo.pdf with the evaluation criteria to be used to evaluate each project. The phase having more weight in percentage terms in the note of students is the script, which includes the entire process of recording making a table in the following sections appear: sequence, description dela same, location, characters, types and recording equipment.
The projects are held for four months and the final video is between five and ten minutes mostly. The results show that the application of these ICT tools in previous sections combined with teamwork, collaboration and cooperation between teachers, students and families, increases the desire and motivation in performing everyday tasks of teachers and students .
Moreover, it has also meant that the school has more classrooms that are fully equipped with ICT equipment, with a stable Internet connection, and teachers who systematically use ICT in teaching.
Presently , the center has five programs and projects underway:
- Andalusia deepens

As for the micro documentary project, teachers consider that this results are very exciting because the project's progress is brilliant.
The success of this project, which has succeeded in developing a new way to assess students by combining the use of ICT with real, everyday life, could be extended to other departments of the center itself or to other centers seeking new ways to enseñanzar to students more in line with the times, trying to bring students to the reality that exists outside the center as well as a further increase and improve their skills in ways that today's businesses demand more as professional profile of future workers to and that if they were inculcated in the educational stage will be easier for students in the future to develop more successfully in both the professional and personal level.
