Last February 23rd , our High School students received a very special visit: SIL School Alumni, university students now, came back to school to share their experiences on this new stage. They are studying different fields as ADE, engineering, languages, law, medicine, among others. What a better way to get first-hand information about a not so far future? The alumni talked about the great offer and the different choices there are. This activity may help student to make the right decision about their future. No doubt our students found the experience reassuring and encouraging.
Our school is one of the five ones chosen to take part in the first educative experience at Smart City Expo Barcelona! This contest includes the design of an intelligent square and its collaborative construction, conceptualizing a vertical super block Cerdà4.0 and the recording and post editing process of a cooperative documentary.
Last year 2 ESO students have won the 1st Prize awarded by the SARquavitae Foundation: “The Geriatros Foundation Awards – SARquavitae awarded with the aim of recognizing the social commitment of individuals and institutions that contributes to better the quality of life of the elderly and Make the world a major place ” (http://www.sarquavitae.es/).
The 2015-16 course, on the initiative of the 2ESO tutor, Mrs. Rubio, started a collaboration program between the school and the Icaime day care centre that treats patients with Alzheimer’s in its initial phase.Dr. Navas, Director of Icaime, gave a lecture to students about Alzheimer’s disease, the needs of those affected and how to treat them. Next, the project was started, which was to prepare activities of cognitive stimulation, which would be carried out in the day centre itself in the workshop hours with the participation of the users of the centre.
It is worth mentioning the work of the 2nd ESO tutors, Mrs. Rubio and D. De La Vega, who accompanied the class work and the start-up of the on-site workshop. On 21st November they will go to Madrid to collect the prize.
Our school has been one of the 6 schools chosen from all over Catalunya for the first educational experience within the Smart City Expo World Congress Barcelona! We are so very glad and proud, therefore our students already work on the first phase: Design Competition.
Here some more words!
Smart City EDucational Xperience has been specifically designed for encouraging the Young generation thinking, designing and making the world they want to live in as well as belonging to a society built by themselves within Smart City Expo World Congress 2017. SCEDX is a multifaceted, non-formal, and a blended learning educational experience where several projects and activities will be developed by 36 students from 6 different high schools, working together through a co-creation methodology; a sequence of activities which have been designed for being developed through co-creation and collaboration by students of different schools, where the competential aim is to help them identifying their strengths and minimizing their fears, always through collaboration and cocreation, inspiring each other and optimizing the summatory of their individual abilities. They will do that through a competition of industrial design, a smart hackaton for designing a smart urban superisle, and the creation and edition of a collaborative documentary of the whole experience made by themselves.
Mr. Miquel Navarro
Our proposal this year is to add value to Technologies 3rd ESO inside (and outside) the classroom… Get ready for #ProjectAccessibility… Be aware of networks…
Teachers, students and families all enjoyed the first SIL festival last saturday. It was a day designed with an objective of happiness and fun for all the family. The morning was full of different activities and crafts in which anybody could participate. We all enjoyed the morning greatly.
