This one’s for you, ama.

“Daughter, from whom did you inherit so much creativity? You should have dedicated yourself to this”. These are the words that my ama (my mother) repeated to me every time I showed her one of my “creations”, whether it was a visual thinking, one of my drawings (which some people affectionately call “dibujines”), one of my robots or my sustainable wooden “little houses” (she still has in her house two of the creations with which I “let myself go” the most).

Dispelling the myth about social entrepreneurhsip

Today’s post was not this one, but I admit that, by chance, while I was looking for information for “the post I was writing”, I came across a video that I liked. It could not be otherwise, I confess. I have a special affection for Ashoka. The video I am sharing with you today seems very clear and direct.

What do I like about this video? Above all, I like the fact that Maite Arango y Alexandra Mitjans, two women from different generations of Ashoka, talk about social entrepreneurship. Among the keywords of their conversation, I share with you the following:

  • Work
  • Challenges
  • Solutions
  • Innovation
  • Initiatives
  • Impacts
  • Contribution
  • Legacy
  • Technology
  • Humanity
  • Ethic
  • Education
  • Awareness
  • Commitment
  • Empathy
  • Sustainability
  • Conviction
  • Collaboration (intergenerational, institutional, organizational, corporate, global, international, etc.)

¿What is your main option? Difficult, right?

Thanks, Ashoka, for your daily work.

I will be back in two weeks. Enjoy June.

Generación docentes: in favor of teacherpreneurs

Some posts ago I told you about one of the gifts I received during the pandemic (well, just before that, in February 2020) which was being able to participate on the 4th pedagogical expedition organized by FPdGi (Princesa de Girona Foundation). Today, I want to talk to you about one of their key program whose goal is to help develop teachers’ talents as transforming and innovating agents. In other words, help them be ready to respond to educational challenges of the actual and future society. Its name: Generación docentes (generation of teachers).

Graddy, do you remember how she/he was?

A few weeks ago, the class of Primary Education 2022 of the University of Deusto (2022-2023) (no, not the ones graduating this year, but the next one), asked me to be in their graduation photo. Of course, for me, it was an honour and a pleasure to be a part of what will be a memory for them and for me.

This time, the truth is that it’s more exciting because, apart from personal matters, the photo itself is not a typical one, but an interactive one. Do you want to know more? Keep reading. (more…)
