Hello everyone!!!! I am Elena Torres Soto from the group Flower Power and I am the star of the task of this week. My role this week has consisted of explain the different connections that exist between the complexity at schools, the relationships at school and the topic of school that learn.
From my point of view this has been one of the most difficult tasks we have done since the connections were very difficult to find and we have spent a lot of time until we reached the right answer. Fortunately the day of the presentation was not so bad as I thought, since I could explain it in a clear and simple way. Moreover, I did not have to make the presentation in my own which helped me a lot to be more confidence and relaxed.
Despite all the difficulties we had with this task, I think that we could be able to get a grat result thanks to all of us and our grat effort.
Good morning everyone! I am Rocío Muñoz and this week I have been one of the star, yes one! because in this task we have to display two stars, so the other one is Elena. This task that is called “School that learn” was related to connections within education and their complexity and all these links have to be drawn in a connection map.
On Monday Linda explained us the activity as every week and then my group, the flower power raffled all the roles. I was very nervous since I did not want to be the star because of my shyness.
On Wendnesday Elena and me had to explain in a different way the structures that belongs to education which are complexity at school, schools that learn and relationships. This task has been a bit difficult to explain because there are a lot of connections among each other and the map was a bit messy but we achieved!
At the end I think our display was fairly good because Linda congratulated us and the other groups too and that´s all.
Hello everyone! I'm Paula Martínez García and this week I'm the facilitator.
On Monday Linda explained us what was this task about. We had to create relationships between some concepts. We went running to the library to start working. It was really hard to concentrate there because everyone was talking so we decided to meet in the afternoon.
I brought some sweets like a snack for my mates and we started working.
It was a bit stressful due to the fact that we were so tired but finally on Tuesday we finally finish our mind map. We can do everything if we work hard!!!!
Hi!! I´m the curator of the task of this week, my name is Veronica and here I´ll show you the resources we have used:
As you can observe we only needed the information the teacher provided us due to the fact that the objective of this task was to find the connexions between the two new documents uploaded this week and the documents of complexity we have already seen some weeks before.
Hello flowers! I’m Paula Martínez Plaza and this week I’ve been the analyst of my group.
In this task, we have had some problems because of the tiredness. In some moments we did not how to continue but finally we have tried to make the activity as good as possible.
The best part of the activity has been when we have found the relationships between the three documents and also, we have laughed a lot due to the desperation.
The worst part has been when we had to read three documents and find the connections to write the speech.
On the other hand, we have learnt a lot about the complexity of the school because it is so influenced by many relations among peers, teachers, parents, technology, new methodologies, and so on.
From my point of view, we need to conserve the positivism and the desire to learn and we need to improve our nerve and also, the effectiveness to do the tasks.
Finally, I want to say that from the very beginning of the course we have gotten very well together and I am very happy with the tasks that we have been doing during this subject.
- Complexity at school: Education is a complex context where you can find many facts such as diversity and redundancy or emerging knowledge.
- Schools that learn: This terms involves three structures (Constant changes, coordination structures teacher's organization) that are linked and this structures are changing all the time.
- Connections : It means the state of being connected. In this task we made a mind map were all the structures worked were linked.
- Structures: Agents that are organized and coordinated among each other.
- Organization: The way you order something for example in this case, it is within education.
In the afternoon, we decided to book a class in the Nebrija’s Library where we read all together the texts in order to make a brainstorming after reading. It was very difficult for us because we didn’t know how to start doing the connexion map.
Hello! I’m Berta and I have been the journalist this week.
On Monday, Linda explained us the new task “Schools organized, Schools that learn”. At first sight, it doesn’t seemed very difficult for us due to the fact some texts that we had to read for this task, we had already read them for another task and we understood them very well.
After Linda’s explanation we decided to go to the Luis Vives library because we couldn’t concentrate since the class was very hot and also there was a lot of noise.
As we were a bit overwhelmed, the facilitator bought for all the group food and she sweetened us the afternoon but at 20:00 p.m we were blocked and we decided to finish working and to go home.
On Tuesday, we ate at the university to not waste time and be able to study in the afternoon due to we are very overwhelmed with the exams. We finish the connexion map at 17:30 more or less.
On Wednesday, we present all the connexion maps and our stars did the presentation very well !!
I have commented the Blog of the Architeachers group and also I have commented the blog / where the author talks about some innovations that we can include in schools such as the ICT.
REFLEXION TASK 11
In this task we have learned the different connections that are in the education, complexity at school, schools that learn and relationships.
First of all in the point of the complexity at schools, we have learned that the complexity at school is teaching and learning and it depend on the organization and relationships between teachers. The knowledge will emerge from this connections. So within this interconnections of levels, knowledge emerges. The different types of knowledge that emerge here are: context knowledge( depending on the cirscunstances, the school, the culture,… ) emerging knowledge (which is connected with relationship structure because it appears through connections with teacher-students, family, peers…), randomness and determinism order which are connected with diversity and redundancy (because randomness and diversity want to innovate but redundancy and determinism order prefer carrying on in a traditional way).
In the point of schools that learn, the different structures are changing all the time. Within this connection we have seen constant changes because as you know education is in a constant change and we have done a connection with diversity and balanzing randomness because all of them want to innovate.
Also we have learned that coordination structures, in which teachers are elements of organizations and they obtain new knowledge in order to improve the organization and efficiency, is linked with teacher s organization because on the one hand through years of experiencies and years of working teachers have achieved success and have improved their teaching technique and on the other hand teachers are aware of learning processes and they know that each problem is an apportunity to learn something new.
