What challenges do you think the teacher faces in 2017?
Education is increasingly difficult for teachers. The current educational system in Spain has notable flaws. The Lomce is not adapted to the reality of the classroom. Therefore teachers have to put everything in their power to bring to fruition the goals set in the planification.
“As always, the primary purpose is getting the involvement of students in the learning process to reach the goal.”
Is there anything in your personal or professional experience that is meaningful to your experience as a teacher?
I have always tried to pique the interest of students. For this I sought tools that involve definite challenge for children. Not only I tried to memorizasen content but also that they lived that content. New technologies serve to learners surf the Internet in search of answers to the problems. Not only I used WebQuests as elements that help learning, also ask questions that should bring resolved the next day, as reinforcement system.
Would you advise teachers whose are not using new technologies to update their methodology and incorporate new channels of communication with their students?
“I would not advise them to make use of those new technologies but I will force it, but providing the necessary assistance to all who need it, as some do not have the necessary knowledge to become involved in the learning process.”
Do you think that social networks are a tool for sharing resources among teachers?
I totally agree. It is one of the best tools (platforms) to make education (teaching) something alive.
