The new Scholas Platform allows students and teachers to exchange experiences to learn from each other, as well as to share those projects that require an extra hand, be it financial resources or volunteers.
For her part, Adriana Noreña, director of Google for Hispanic America, explained that Scholas, which at the moment is available in three languages – Spanish, English and Italian -, has “the objective of connecting schools and students globally to help children in their learning processes because Pope Francis considers that art, technology and education are important for the peace of the world.”
