Technologies & Education at the Science Week
As part of the activities the URV organizes in the national Science Week, the Pedagogy Department presents to the public some of its research and teaching activities. I was so glad to count on the cooperation of Cristina Zamora, my student last course, who explained to all visitors, including children, mothers, teachers and our principal, her experience in the subject New Technologies Applied to Education.
All the materials created by my student teachers are available online for teachers who want to use them in their classes, in the resources section of EDUCANET. Last semester they created an educational web page, a webquest and a blog. It was a great experience because at the beginning, most students had nothing but very basic knowledge of informatics. They also were afraid of trying with new technologies. The results of their work available at EDUCANET speaks for itself. It was a very rich experience, which undoubtfully must be improved, but that has surely changed our understandings of what educating means.
Next course, I’m planning to launch an IDEAS MARKET, so that in-service teachers can demand technological pedagogical materials to my pre-service teachers. That is due to begin late January. I’ll keep you informed about it!
