We are almost done with the first semester here at Facultad de Ciencias de la Educación, Universidad de Málaga, España. Two weeks ago, we finish the Degree Course Music Education with the presentations of my students (We are not done yet, they are working on the audiotales!!), and last week, we had the presentations of the students enrolled in the Master for Secondary Education. This is another typology of student, a little bit older than those from the Degree, more mature. Maybe because of that, I was so amazed with the presentations! Upcycling, Glocal, Wix, healthy food, advertisement, cinema, rap… They showed us a lot of innovative ways for Secondary Education. I have to say I learned a lot, the energy, creativity and an innovative approach to education is essential for the contemporary world. I want to think I had something to do, but I know they were already like that, we just gave them the surface and an excuse to expand their ideas and creativity. And those are powerful tools for today’s educational context. Thank you all for showing me how far you can get if you have a reason.
We finished the classes, but I still have to work with some of them in the TFM during the next months. I also want to go visit them in their practices, so I guess the best is yet to come. Educations is a process in which if the one supposed to teach doesn’t learn, something is wrong. So, I’ll try to keep learning.
Hemos terminado las clases, pero todavía tengo que trabajar con alguno de ellos en la Trabajo de Fin de Máster durante los próximos meses. También quiero realizar algunas visitas a Centros de Prácticas, así que creo que lo mejor todavía está por llegar. La educación es un proceso en el que si el que se supone que enseña no aprende, algo no está funcionando. Intentaré, por lo tanto, seguir aprendiendo.
