Recebemos em nossa escola Zach Marks, o adolescente norte americano que, aos 12 anos, criou uma rede social para crianças e adolescentes – o Grom Social.
Hoje, aos 15 anos, Zach conta com mais de um milhão de membros em sua rede social e compartilhou com os nossos alunos do 6º ao 9º ano alguns diferenciais do Grom Social, além de contar a interessante história de como teve a iniciativa de criar uma rede social.
O bate papo foi mediado pela equipe de inglês e proporcionou aos alunos um contato maior com a língua inglesa.
A vinda de Zach ao Brasil faz parte de uma atividade proposta pela Smart High School, uma vez que também é aluno da Florida Virtual School, cuja plataforma é usada no programa duo diploma (Ensino Médio brasileiro + High School americano) oferecido por nossa escola.
