It is a trend to see people using smart phones with their thumbs, while doing daily activities: walk, work, drive, eat…
with no worries about negative consequences (social isolation, lack of face-to-face communication) or terrible consequences (road accidents).

Cibercolegio English project arose as a strategy for improving the communicative competences on students, where the lack of motivation and no contextualized learning material were the main issues to deal with.
First evidences: 2013
