2. NUMERO 1/2014


Desde el Grupo de Trabajo GEDEFO queremos presentarte este Boletín, que nace con el objetivo de completar la información de nuestra página web. Como sabéis, a finales de Noviembre empezamos nuestra andadura en Twitter con bastante éxito, pero como somos conscientes de que no todo el mundo utiliza las redes sociales, consideramos que sería útil  difundir las aportaciones mas interesantes.

En este primer número hemos recopilado aquellos tuits que nos parecen mas interesantes con los link a los artículos originales.

Esperamos que os resulte interesante esta iniciativa y os animamos a uniros al grupo y participar en él.
