BREAKING NEWS


“Today a crime has been committed at Colegio Santísima Trinidad. A teacher-in-training program has been murdered. As of yet, nobody knows who can be the murderer but we have many suspicious people. All that we know is that 4º ESO graders are in charge of solving such a cruel murder.

Our students are all a group of very talented people who have learnt a lot of subjects during the year and now is the moment to put them into practice. They are true BIO-DETECTIVES, so they have to figure out what happens and find out the real guilty. To reach their aim -to solve the bloody crime-they only have 50 minutes

We hope to give you more information as soon as possible but this is what we know so far. Our students are truly committed to resolving the murder but will they able to clarify the bloody crime? We will continue to keep you informed as soon as we have updated information.

A BreakoutEDU experience

Today our students of 4º ESO and 1º Bachillerato have enjoyed a BreakoutEDU experience. The main objective of that involves students into a divergent-thinking activity. They need to be able to use contents they have learnt and at the same time, they have to do their best, working as a group and solving different riddles. This is pretty similar to an Escape-Room activity, but instead of giving the chance of each group, all the groups work together in the same place for 50 minutes and they need to follow different clues to achieve their objective.

The first steps are to design the activity and try to link the contents from the curriculum to a great story. In these steps, we would like to thank you for our teacher-in-training program Alba and María from the University of Salamanca. Alba had a great and unique idea, and we all together were able to make it real. After creating the idea, we created the workgroups. They had to be heterogeneous groups because they need to work together and complement each other. Finally, we needed an open space to organize all the clues and all the workplaces.


“We are proud of saying that all the BIO-DETECTIVES groups have arrested the murderer. It is true that there have been groups faster than others, but all of them have achieved their goal. Will they able to solve the next crime? We will continue to keep you informed of the goals of such top-notch investigators and their excellent leaders Alba and María”.
