#englishteachingtoday #makeadifference

Why teach today’s students as we taught yesterday’s? The world continues to change and so do we and our students. Time and space have changed on the education stage as well and there is a huge need to rethink what we do. Which are some of the core principles in ELT today? Are these principles playing a leading role in our lessons? Are all students performing to the best of their abilities?

Bullying y cyberbullying: Excesos y riesgos a la hora de nombrar-nos. Pistas para salir del laberinto

En los últimos años hemos asistido a un uso y abuso de determinadas terminologías que hacen a las escuelas y ponen al docente en el foco de atención. Términos como bullying y cyberbullying ocupan la agenda cotidiana de los medios de comunicación y circulan publicaciones que –muchas veces- confunden más de lo que aclaran dejando a las familias, escuelas, niños y adolescentes en un lugar pantanoso y paralizante. La estructura denominada bullying tiene características determinadas y se diferencia de otras formas en que puede expresarse la violencia. Si no tenemos esto claro, podemos equivocarnos en las maneras de intervenir y, también, realizar diagnósticos veloces y con poco fundamento. En mi presente trabajo abordaré aspectos conceptuales buscando aclarar estas diferencias, explicitando qué conductas son bullying y cuáles, en cambio, las consideramos expresión de la libertad de los niños, niñas y jóvenes para establecer vínculos. Qué es evolutivo y qué no lo es en las relaciones entre pares es otro de los ejes sobre los cuales reflexionaremos. Propondré estrategias de abordaje, formas de detección y algunos puntos a considerar si queremos prevenir la aparición de estas dinámicas. Si bien vivimos en una época en la cual la palabra “exceso” parecería definirnos, la escuela puede ser un espacio en el cual estos excesos sean contenidos y canalizados. La utilización desmedida de la palabra bullying genera rechazo y esto no es bueno. Nos conduce, tal vez, a no querer –próximamente- saber nada más e ignorar una problemática que cada día se instala un poco más en las escuelas. Quisiera en este encuentro dar a cada concepto su dimensión justa, compartir experiencias cotidianas y dar la palabra a los asistentes para debatir y pensar juntos. Utilizaré como soporte material audiovisual.

“Making your students visible:
how to use Emotional skills and Social capacities to build life-worthy learning”

Education is changing and learner drivers are evolving: students need to learn by building their own capacities, passion and identity in motivating settings that recognize them as whole persons and make them realize their dreams. Social and

Emotional Learning can help your students  tap into their passions, regulate their emotions, activate their global gene and foster more positive, nurturing relationships. Likewise, SEL promotes acceptance and empathy, and is proven to bring considerable  improvements in academic performance. Let’s make of our classroom the best environment for students to flourish! Let’s do it together!

21st Century Learning: Going Beyond the Classroom Door

The 21st century “classroom” is a land worth exploring. By going beyond the classroom door, both in and out, we will discover what our students need in order to effectively interact with the world they are living in. We need to equip ourselves with tools and strategies that will help our students develop the new skills and abilities expected of them today.
I’ll open that door during this presentation. Are you ready to go beyond it with me?

Transcending the boundaries of conventional language teaching through the Performing Arts

Conventional language teaching often loses sight of its real aim : communication.  Languages exist because there is a need to relate to others, a need for exchanging ideas, feelings and bonding. Do conventional English classes foster authentic communication and real integration among students and teachers?
Is students' learning significant and meaningful? Do students really become actively engaged in language learning? Do teachers often appeal to their bodies, minds and souls?
This workshop will try to encourage reflective practice and explore dramatic techniques and resources through practical tasks in order to turn students into committed actors of their own learning process.

Exploring convergence: transmedia resources in culturally responsive classrooms

In a context of growing globalisation and migration and the spread of digital media, post-millennial culture is marked by mobility and convergence. Potentially, learning the language of international communication can helps us develop awareness of the diverse realities around us and how they impact upon the multiple realities of our local environment. By exploring materials in which different media and art forms converge, this presentation will reflect on didactic strategies that can help us educate creative, critical global citizens capable of respecting difference and expressing their own multiple identities inside the classroom and beyond its walls.
