Speech Title: Software Education and Spirituality

Abstract: Software education usual is considered an abstract mechanism for students. Understanding the evolution of programming languages, of new technologies developed with real life interaction will offer possibilities of fast development of skills of students in the education process. Associations among software concepts with spiritual elements will create a deeper understanding of many complex notions involved. Practical activities in compatible students’ teams will offer communication abilities to interact and evolve in an harmonious mode. From structured to swarm programming and communication with software skills connected with simple life and spiritual associations that will be presented, students will be able to become real software developers instead of many “robot” developers that are working in companies.

Speech Title: Research is Formalized Curiosity: Use of Educational Technology in the Classroom a Personal Account

Abstract: I studied a career in science and worked for almost ten years as a researcher, before deciding to become a HighSchool teacher, once I started working at the school I felt concerned seeing about most of the chemistry classes taught by the chemistry teachers at the school were more theoretica, innovation in some cases consistented in using applications like kahoot, mentimeter, quizlet, ausrasma etc. with the sole porpoise of creating quizzes and exams. Later on I also started teaching other classes like Tutoring and Weelbeing, Critical Thinking, Personal Development, Ethics and Citizenship, classes that many consider not to have any relationship with educational technology.
I have to admit that at the beginning my main concern was to get resources or funding to start a project more than to use the best education technology for my class and for the academic achievement of my students. The beginning of my journey started when the campus director made us participate in NOVUS Initiative for the financing of educational innovation projects at the Tecnológico de Monterrey, in this path I discovered the importance of the interaction with other teachers, peers and students and the ability to discover new and feasible opportunities, to try to be inquiring and curious and be able to get out of the ordinary and of your comfort zone.

In broader terms, my research interests concern sociology of knowledge and digital education, with a theoretical and practical commitment to social justice. My research explores what learning means in the digital age and analyses collective pedagogies in digital spaces. Currently, I am interested in "educational futures" as a research domain. I move away from studying what technology do for us and explore what technology do to us. I believe that without understanding how social, political, economic, and historical Discourses manifest themselves in social interactions, we cannot understand why and how the way that we learn is transformed by digital technologies.
