"The exchange and comparison between different regions - the organizers commented - proved to be the fundamental starting point for achieving the objective of to upgrade and retrain the role of the teacher in a multilingual way ". The protagonists of the videoconference were Alberta Pettoello, rector of the Convitto Paolo Diacono, Patrizia Pavatti, director of the Intervention Service of the Regional Agency for the Right to Education - ARDIS), William Cisilino, director of ARLEF, Noemí Álvarez Villa, the referent of the Consellerìa de Cultura, Educacìon and Universidade of Galicia, Victoriano Costas Suárez, principal of IES Salvaterra de M.
