Sparkling Feats

Sparkling feats in times of distant teaching

In Zeiten des Fernunterrichts reichen unsere Schüler:innen ihre geschriebenen bzw. per Audio und Video aufgenommenen Arbeitsergebnisse über das Schulportal Hessen ein. Wir freuen uns immer sehr über die große Anzahl der meist sehr gelungenen (Fern-)Unterrichtsprodukte.

Unter diesen befinden sich auch einige kleine Perlen, die unserer Meinung nach besonders zu würdigen sind und daher auf mehr als nur unserer eigenen Bildschirmoberfläche aufleuchten sollten. Deshalb möchten wir Ihnen an dieser Stelle gerne die „sparkling feats“ dieser außergewöhnlichen Zeit präsentieren. Hören, sehen und erfreuen Sie sich an den wunderbaren Produkten.

You can also add a picture of your sight.
