Mundo Escolar on line reporters
Students have had eight weeks to set up their news magazines with the most important news of their area. At the same time they have gone through certain compulsory work, such as telling how they have organized the magazine, explaining the title, participating in the forum of "doubts" so as to help their colleagues etc.
All the on line magazines were ready at the end of June in the Mundo Escolar web and were submitted to public voting. This voting meant 40% of the total and the other 60% was evaluated by a Fe y Alegría representatives committee.

These kind of initiatives allow, thanks to the new technologies, the exchange of experiences and knowledge among teachers and students of different schools that make up the Fe y Alegría network in Latin America.
