I'm writing you because you are UNESCO ASPnet National Coordinator in your Country, about D3MOBILE classroom activity (available in English and Spanish). (http://www.d3mobile.es/index.php?idioma=en)
I'm pleased to invite you to visit http://d3mobile.es/?idioma=en for information about "6th D3MOBILE - INTERNATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP IN 3D PRECISION MODELING WITH YOUR SMARTPHONE/TABLET". The mains objectives of D3MOBILE are to bring STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art e Mathematics) and 21st Century skills (creativity, innovation, problem solving, communication/colaboration, digital literacy...) to teachers and students and to encourage them to learn about the UNESCO medium term strategic objectives, through Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), m-learning, e-learning, OER and PBL.
