General information

There is a repertoire of terms available, but students can also bring in their own terms.
The tandem will walk digitally connected through cellphones, via WhatsApp, Facetime, Signal orany other application which is accessible to both so as to remain in permanent contact whilst walking.
They will be attentive to the environment as they pursue the conversation.

They are invited to use all their senses:
"Can you walk without being disturbed? Is it hot? How do you imagine your digital partner’s path smells? Which images appearing on the screen of your cellphone inform your walking? Are you using the cellphone in selfie mode or as a projecting tool? Is the phone on loudspeaker mode or do you prefer to keep it private close to your ear? Do you focus on your feet – the path - or on the horizon line? "
This awareness about the environment will help the tandem in their reflections about their terms. They will go for a walk of about 30-45 min.
