Communicate using Skype
This free software can be used to speak, send instant messages or make free videocalls through the Internet. You can use it from a PC or download it from a mobile phone to stay in touch from wherever you are.
In the case of the TRIÁNGULO project, we have used the free call service offered by Skype. Students from Vic (Cataluña) and Faro (Algarve, Portugal) agreed to hold a videoconference. Once the time had been set, it began with a greeting from teachers Marta Pey and Isabel Monteiro, and then it moved on to the introduction, one to one, of students from both countries. As they have said on the main project Blog, it has been an enriching experience that has allowed them to get to know each other after several months working together.
Through the development of this conference, communication has become an audiovisual language that - above all textual, visual or oral communication - has enabled the use of various audiovisual and multimedia means.
