I have engaged in this Teacher Challenge during summer holidays, for several reasons; however, each one of them – as the fact that I would like to “refresh” about web educational tools or the fact that I miss to connect with other teachers and students for the pleasure of sharing learning experiences – is linked to a powerful source of motivation: my school is slowly but firmly approaching a new turning point in its history.
Actually, there is an engaged team struggling to lead the whole educational project and community to enter the path of innovation. That means that learning could take its right position in the centre of the process and students could be given the voice to articulate their own life project in the adventure of mutual collaboration that links knowledge to the real world .
Right now we are following the evolution of Horitzó 2020, where eight Jesuit schools in Barcelona are achieving a major paradigm shift on the learning process. We also translated the new Horizon Report K-12 2016– preview and several topics from Visual Learning, specially “Teach the Teacher”.
So, I hope that our students will be empowered in order to lead their own educational quest and, in this process, they will be present online again.
