All of them to encourage learning and stimulate the exchange of knowledge from collaboration, dialogue, exploration, intervention and analysis.

Evaluation systems and criteria

In person



The subject has a particularly practical character so there is a need to attend class in person. The evaluation of this subject is global, although we teach it in 2 learning blocks: ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) and SO (School Organization). Therefore, in order to pass the subject, the student must demonstrate that he has reached a minimum level of the learning outcomes of each block. Thus, when the student has passed the 2 blocks, we can assign the overall mark taking into account the weighted weight of the blocks.

Different evaluation activities and evaluation systems will be used: learning dossier, group research work, seminars, oral presentations, debates, written and audiovisual productions, objective tests, activity design, self-evaluation and co-evaluation. The evaluation will be continuous. Teamwork, involvement and participation of the students will be valued. In order to obtain the final mark for each block, we will take into account group productions (45%), an individual test on learning and learning (35%), and self-evaluation and co-evaluation (20%). The Teaching and Learning process of each block (TIC-OE) is guided, continuous and accompanied.
