On Thursday, 18 April, Little Bridge and their local partner Ediciones SM held a prize-giving ceremony at the British residence for the best users of their platform-based English language resources for 6-12 year olds. On the occasion three winning students received mini iPads and the winning school received an interactive whiteboard.

The winners were:

  • Sofía Meyer, Colegio Alborada, Puente Alto
  • Francisco Alfaro, Liceo Domingo Santa María, Arica
  • Diego Aravena, Escuela Chacarilla, Maule
  • Escuela Nuestra Señora del Carmen from Curacaví

Ambassador Jon Benjamin congratulated all the winners and said:

In my opinion the Little Bridge product is spectacular. And one of the reasons is its interactivity and the attractiveness of its characters. Today, one of the major challenges for teachers is how to keep children entertained while making sure that they learn at the same time and that is a task that has been tackled really well by Little Bridge and its product.

Little Bridge is a complete series of classroom resources with step-by-step guidance and extra resource material where students are taken into a virtual 3D community and where they can interact with animated characters, improve their language and chat safely online with other children around the world. It has interactive whiteboard material to add variety to school lessons and an easy-to-use Learning Management System for assigning homework and track students’ progress.

The interactive world of Little Bridge online includes hundreds of fun activities including DigiTalk where Little Bridge learners around the world can send messages in a safe and secure online chat room. Students can create their own 3D avatar … and they will have their own unique character in Little Bridge.

Young learners meet the characters living in this virtual community, they play a huge variety of games whilst effortlessly learning English that is being offered to millions of young students in Spain and Latin America.
