The school is located in the low area of town, next to Guadalete river. It consists of 75 teachers and about 950 students, some of whom have special educational needs. In our school, we teach Compulsory secondary education, “bachillerato” (non-compulsory secondary education), Vocational studies on Computers (both lower and higher grades) and FPB (Basic Vocational Studies) . Students belong to different socio-cultural levels and to different localities around Arcos de la Frontera. These aspects determine different levels of implication and motivation of the students. One element that is common to all of them is the straightforward and cheap access to Internet on their mobile devices.
This project, in cooperation with other countries, provides us with the opportunity to know, compare,and understand how the different institutions are dealing with this huge issue. Always with the idea of sharing, learning and reaching conclusions to improve our students' awareness of the problem and their positive use of Internet. We can proudly say that our organisation has a wide and long-lasting experience in the fields and objectives of this project : - we have been a pioneer in the implementation of the Bilingual Teaching. This consist of the aquisition, on the students' part, of knowledge in several subjects, through the target language, English - we have a whole section of the building devoted to Vocational Studies on ICT. Thus, the tradition of our school in the use and thorough study of anything related to computer and internet is noticeable at every corner of our building. In addition, our school has the newest optic fibre cable to ensure high speed internet connection. - our school has been chosen to take part in a pioneer experience organized by our regional Education Government: Prevention, Early Detection and Intervention on School Bullying and Cyberbullying. In that framework, our school has begun some activities in the field of teacher training and students'involvement. Some instances of these being role-plays, cyberbullying detection, practical situational training, secure Internet surfing to avoid fakes, Identity theft. Our School prides itself in being a pioneer in using ICT in the classroom. So, most of our teachers use platforms like Edmodo, Flipgrid and the like. We would like to mention as well that our school is taking part in a regional contest of short films about this topic: the dangers of the Internet among teenagers. We intend to make this film a cornerstone of our project adding subtitles in English. For this project we count on the vice-principal of our school, the Head of Studies, the Coordinator of the Bilingual Project and the Linguistic Project and an expert on ICT. All of them have taken part in European Projects before and show the necessary abilities to carry out all the tasks described above. If the mentioned teachers from our school will leave their post, there will be enough teachers, who can substitute them.
