We suggest using Google Drive, Dropbox and Whatsapp in order to help students and
Teachers cooperate during the development of the tasks assigned within the Teaching Modules.
Apps like Whatsapp could also help students to get to know each other before the shared classroom. It is important to start with an ice-breaker before the start of the teaching module. It could be useful if the ice-breakers are about sustainability or SDGs, but it is not mandatory.
