Today it was the end of the innovation project carried out in RECREARTE, where all pupils and different teachers have been working along the year trying to remember details of the 60s in different fields, music, energy, clothes, dancing, food, holidays, photos, etc...
the pupils of Drama directed by their teacher Sara Sánchez, were performing 'Memories from the 60s'
It was very funny and well performed.
Santiago was a French policeman in the rebellion of 1968 and Jesus Liso one of the rebels, of course.
The young inheritors were reading the diaries of their dead relatives with very good memories and talking to the nuns of the residence hall, and one of the most memorable moments was the Eurovision contest with Manolo and Eva, as the presenters of it, and Masiel as the winner of that year.
OUR STUDENTS IN 1ST bACHILLERATO HAVE BEEN WORKING ON NEW JOBS FOR THE FUTURE. HERE YOU CAN READ SOME EXAMPLES:
Technology has implied a huge revolution in the 20th century. The invention of machines and robots is increasing more and more.
On the one hand, robots are very useful. Having robots at home like cleaning mini robots or window cleaner arms will save us a lot of time, effort and money. Although they are expensive, it is a good investment. For example, someone who doesn't know much about cooking, instead of getting someone to work for them at home, they can buy robots like Thermomix which can cook a huge amount of meals.
On the other hand, they are replacing people, this means people are left without a salary. In addition, robots can't have human ideas. For instance, the Thermomix I mentioned above doesn't control if the house is on fire as a human being is able to do, of course. One friend of mine has invented a robot which detects gas in a factory but it can detec a flooding.
To sum up, they are definitely useful although they leave many people aside without a job and fortunately, they don't pollute the environment, which is our main priority for the future. We must take care of our planet Earth. It is the only one we have.
In the last few years, the robotic industry has increased
and developed greatly, especially in countries like Japan or the USA and,
nowadays, it is really extended all over the world. People think robots could
be our future or our end and both ideas are really common.
One of the advantages could be that robots allow us to do
things extremely difficult for humans, like when talking about working
techniques, lifting heavy objects or non-stop working. Futhermore, they are
really useful on scientific research too. One of the main disadvantages is that a lot of people are
afraid of losing their jobs because of robots and their domination over humans,
mainly due to the new discoveries on life-intelligence
incorporated in robots.
Personally speaking, whereas many people may think that
robots will be our end, I think they are the best way to improve as a society
and, although they are too expensive, I would prefer to invest in robots, which
will be able to help people, than invest in the royal family’s affairs, for
THIS IS THE TEXT WE HAD THE CHANCE TO READ IN THE LANGUAGE EXAM OF EVAU THAT I DARED TRANSLATE BECAUSE I WAS GETTING BORED AS AN INVIGILATOR: MARGA HERRERO
There are more and more proposals to introduce humanities in the training of Executive managers. Here, it still sounds like an heresy or just an ornament, or even something worse. As there are many types of dogmatic people, for some of them, it is something useless like trying to mix water with oil; for others, it is a sort of rude manipulation. And there is nothing else to talk about, is there??
Facing the one who one to stop it before discussing, others suggest that, in times of uncertainties, when calculation and planning don’t solve anything, the liability of the organizations requires a detailed and lucid development of the human condition. That’s why, we have a market of coaching, self-aid, emotional learning and several types of mindfulness, which exists because it corresponds to a need we have, still not recognized by the conventional training.
Maybe, we can better understand out times getting into Antigona, King Lear, or the Grapes of Wrath, than reading one more useless report. If we have to be open to complexity, to learn, or to listen, or not to reproduce the usual patterns, maybe Humanities can contribute to it more than the enthusiastic conferences of the motivating experts. Even more, they can contribute better to create a shared culture rather than can another meeting about corporative values. Paradoxically, that is so, when we take Humanities seriously and not as the ninth blind man kick to the air after asking for the last trend in education. Because taking them seriously means, in words of P. Kolvenbach, that it is also a question of cultural criticism and not simply of culture transmission.
