Introduction, 1' 
Hello everybody, we are very exciting to wellcome you to the table  "Type of education activities, a blended offline-online experience". 
We are Karma Peiró (@kpeiro) and Adolfo Antón Bravo (@adolflow) from OKF Spain.  
We are organizing several activities mainly in Madrid and Barcelona  since 2011 but also in other cities as Iruña/Pamplona, Donostia/San  Sebastián, León, Sevilla, Valladolid or Almería. 

Share key lessons learned about the topic 5' 
Our main activity is offline although we use some tools to spread the  message by the network and we are planning e-learning activities. 

Communication tools 
Even online activities are a good way to make everybody participant  in the session, there is nothing like offline sessions to feel how  people get in touch, share its experiences and work together. 
So we think we must keep some kind of offline activiy although as the  community get older and know more about the topics we discuss people get  busy. In this case you to reach new people in order to keep the group  alive.
