Telefonica Mexico's portable classroom 'Aula Movil' is an educational project that was launched at this year's international Virtual Educa conference in Guadalajara, aiming to make even the most ordinary classroom a little more high-tech.

Constant budget cuts and changes to technology make it nearly impossible for public schools to keep up with changing demands, but this handy mobile classroom kit supplies all the tools to turn an analog learning environment into a digital one. The Aula Movil contains hotspots for up to 40 devices, plus a computer intranet system, a multimedia projector, monitor, speakers and other useful resources for educators.

The project was first launched by Fundacion Telefonica in Peru, developed as a way to better integrate digital technology in classrooms, particularly those in rural and marginalized areas of Latin America.
