Website created for a workshop held at MIT for discussing ideas for leveraging Refugees education
I trained teachers in the creation of this inquiry-oriented constructivist resource, the WebQuest (model created by Bernie Dodge in 1995). I created this meta-WebQuest to show teachers an example of how to build it. I taught the “Educational Technology” course for different pre-service teachers specialists (musical education, social work, Grade 1-6, and K). I train them on to designing and tailoring these WebQuest to their students following instructional design principles, creating pedagogically sound resources and incorporating technology with educational sense. This activity allowed students to acquire competencies in the development of educational activities both, pedagogically sound and multimedia-enriched.
As a volunteer in Boston Partners in Education, I collaborated with a teacher from a bilingual school. She along with other teachers are willing to create a bilingual community of teachers from the Greater Boston. We started setting up this web space:
ECUSA is the Spanish Association of Scientists in the USA. One of the primary aims of this association is to transfer scientific knowledge to society through education along cultures. Hence, one of the ECUSA’ educational projects seeks to establish a partnership between a Spanish and an American school, so that students can collaborate and communicate through the virtual space in shared scientific projects. This site provides them the technical solution to communicate and share content and experience.
