Rocío García Carrión and Lourdes Villardón Gallego, researchers at eDucaR (University of Deusto), are guest editors of the special issue “Impact of the Interactive Learning Environments on Children and Youth Socialization” to be published in the international and open access journal Social Science (ISSN 2076-0760).

Social Sciences is indexed in SCOPUS (CiteScore 2018: 0.89 – Q2 in the category General Social Sciences) and in other databases and archives. https://www.mdpi.com/journal/socsci

The aim of this Special Issue is to advance social scientific understanding of interactive contexts and socialization processes oriented to improve quality of life for children and youths. Positive socialization among children and youths in families, schools, communities, and other social contexts has long-lasting effects throughout their lifespan. Social interactions are the basis of child and youth development. Therefore, understanding the mechanisms and effects of social interactions on the process of socialization becomes a critical issue to advance knowledge for improving quality of life. Interactive learning environments promote positive social interactions that enhance positive psychological functioning, social development, and access to social support.

This Special Issue welcomes manuscripts from different disciplines such as education, psychology, and sociology, among others. Theoretical, methodological and empirical contributions using different methodologies, quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods are all welcome. The studies reported in the manuscripts can be exploratory, cross-sectional, longitudinal, or interventional conducted in diverse contexts that are relevant for the socialization of children and youths, for example, family, school, and community, work, social networks, and so on.

This special issue is open for submission until 31 August 2020. More information at https://www.mdpi.com/journal/socsci/special_issues/interactive_learning

Enlarge SEAS: Training sessions in Lisbon

Lisbon has hosted the first training related to the European project Enlarge SEAS which has taken place from the 14th to the 17th of May. In it, teachers and members of the management teams from very diverse schools in Portugal, Malta, Czech Republic and Spain have met to learn more about the Dialogic Literary Literary Gatherings (DLG) and Interactive Groups (IG) in order to implement them in their schools. There is a lot of enthusiasm to start implementing these Successful Educational Actions (SEAS) in their contexts in order to offer an education based in scientific evidences.

The education professionals who have participated in this training session have shared their doubts and concerns in an egalitarian context. This has been possible thanks to a program that have combined both theoretical training based on science and spaces to debate in which all contributions have been well received. The training session has concluded with a visit to a school that already implements these two SEAS.

eDucaR takes part in the ‘Feria de la Ciencia’ once again

For the second consecutive year, five members of the eDucaR team participated in the annual ‘Feria de la Ciencia’ (science fair), which took place on the 10th of May in Bilbao’s Plaza Nueva. Following last year’s presentation of results for the project IMP-EXIT (2015-2017), this year’s event provided a platform for the team to report the progress and preliminary findings of the I+D+I INTER-ACT (2018-2021) research project.

During the event, more than 50 young people took part in interactive group workshops and dialogic literary circles for two hours while their families learned the benefits of such activities, whose positive impact has been validated and supported by the scientific community.

Participation of eDucaR in the project EIPTE (Entrepreneurship in Initial Primary Teacher Education)

During the week, the participants had the opportunity to exchange points of view, see different ways to carry out entrepreneurial projects or talk and debate with experts in the field.

The EIPTE project is coordinated in Bilbao by Professor Arantza Arruti – member of the team Education Research – eDucaR and brings together colleagues from 6 countries (Germany, Denmark, Belgium, Lithuania, Sweden and Spain). Its aim is to increase the number of higher education institutions that develop entrepreneurial education.

 

 

eDucaR en DeustoForum: “50 años educando para mejorar el mundo”

Satellite

Paulo Freire es uno de los intelectuales de la educación más influyentes del siglo XX. En 2018, coincidiendo con la celebración del 50 aniversario de la primera publicación de su libro “Pedagogía del Oprimido”, su figura y pensamiento están siendo objeto de homenajes internacionales. En palabras del autor, “este libro no ha cambiado el mundo, pero sí ha cambiado a las personas que cambiarán el mundo”.

Para dialogar sobre su legado y la educación como instrumento para hacer un mundo mejor, contaremos con Ramón Flecha, doctor Honoris Causa de la West University Timisoara y catedrático de Sociología de la Universidad de Barcelona, que fue invitado como ponente en el homenaje que la Universidad de Harvard dedicó a Freire por el conocimiento de su obra y persona. Junto a él intervendrán Nelida Zaitegui, Presidenta del Consejo Escolar de Euskadi, maestra y pedagoga, y Lourdes Villardón, catedrática de Didáctica y Desarrollo Curricular y doctora en Psicología por la Universidad de Deusto.
