This week we have had a visit from two role models in our future as education professionals and integrators of the technology and its uses. On Monday we had a visit from Manel Rives.
This teacher with over 20 years experience, who has exercised his teaching in Galicia with primary school students but now he is located in Cartagena (Murcia) in the IES Polytechnic Institute as a teacher of scientific and socio-mathematical field for occupational class .
In addition to all his teaching career, Manel speaks three languages, Castilian, English and Galician.
Manel has been immersed in numerous projects related to technology specifically with the use of the Ipads.
Manel has been and is immersed in the world of new technologies and using these in the classroom with students. He has been working with many projects. This past Monday told us an experience that he had had with his last grade of primary. They made a web, a kind of radio, which was active for a year, this site had a lot of visits and won numerous awards.
We were surprised that he had told us, because with children as young as he was able to take a project forward which requires daily dedication of everyone and be constant
After class he proposed us some activities with his tablets besides he was five Ipads which one he borrowed us . He gave the name of various applications and we had to investigate each and every one of them and determine what we liked and how we would use and why. Our example was the application Stopmotion .We would give children a theme and they developed through snapshots. Our theme was water exchange , ie the transition from one state to another , so the children would have to show these processes in photos that would rise to the application and reproduce as a kind of film.
In summarized it has been a very useful class and we are very grateful for the visit of this example in teaching. Tomorrow Jane Challinor will visit us, and we will inform us about her visit .
Thank you very much for your attention.
