On Friday 18th March, 18 Year 7 pupils visited Newcastle University to take part in a language and cooking workshop, Linguacuisine.
Linguacuisine aims to promote the learning of digital literacy, languages, cuisines and cultures. It does this through co-design of downloadable apps and social recipes, using an authoring tool to develop an online community of practice.
Pupils learnt about traditional Spanish food and had the opportunity to make a traditional Spanish tapas ‘datiles con queso’ (dates with cheese) using digital technology. Pupils thoroughly enjoyed sampling this delicacy and some even suggested that they would go home and make some more!
