Why is it important?

The peculiarity of the experience is the design of a blended e-learning context, with a constructivist approach to learning, in which three different groups of students participate in the same project, with an active role and with learning that is enhanced by the use of Google +, Google Docs, Twitter and a blog. To present the experience, the design and development of the project is shown, and the results, based on the students' opinion, as the protagonists of their own learning.


The results allow us to know the evaluation that the students make of the acquisition of competences in this experience and in other tests, as well as to identify the competences acquired in relation to the different methodological proposals applied. From the conclusions of the experience, we can see that project work brings multiple benefits to improve students' active participation, their motivation and involvement, the development of competences and significant learning. The high value of peer tutoring as a working modality to promote the development of skills and how students perceive that participation in this project has enabled them to work or acquire the skills set out in a more effective way than in other training experiences that have been seen in their university careers is noteworthy.
