The students attitude towards tutoring and the teachers attributes to be a tutor at elementary technical schools in the State of Tlaxcala

Manuel Camacho Higareda

Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers, 2014, Volume 5, Issue 2, Pages -

In this paper we study the positions that a group of teachers, from three Technical Elementary Schools from Tlaxcala, show towards the tutoring system implemented within the framework of the Comprehensive Reform of Elementary Education (RIEB) in Mexico, 2006. We take verbal speech produced along three focus group sessions as the object of analysis. The Qualitative Content Analysis technique is applied, on the basis of which we report findings on two issues that particularly concern to teachers who are working as-tutors: the attitude of the student before tutorship and the qualities that the tutors must show for an efficient and effective work. The dominant factor is the array of perceptions that the informants express overtly and covertly about the topic at issue, having their own experience, instead of the prescribed principles and concepts provided to them by the theory and taken from the assumption of a homogeneous state of affairs, which is the official discourse characteristic. It is made clear that there is an urgent need to revise the mechanisms that provide incentive to students so that that they get to look at mentoring as useful and necessary. Also, starting from the discussion held at each session, we emphasize the great responsibility that tutoring represents to the tutor, the same as the insufficient informative and formative resources on which he really counts to do his job. In short, we show the view of the protagonists as an element that has barely been taken into account when designing the educational policies. By doing this, we seek to contribute to the understanding and the comprehension of tutoring as a vital aspect of the everyday reality at the school.

New agendas for teacher´s training and new educational research interests

Manuel Fernández Cruz

Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers, 2014, Volume 5, Issue 2, Pages -

Aunque haya acuerdo en que los programas de formación de profesorado deban mejorar, no hay acuerdo sobre cómo, porqué y para qué principios educativos. Las continuas llamadas a la reforma de los sistemas de formación docente tienen distinta procedencia histórica y persiguen distintos objetivos. Algunas se conciben como estrategias de control político de la enseñanza en tanto que otras representan a los movimientos de lucha constante por la autonomía profesional y por la equidad. Cochran-Smith y Fries (2005) se refieren a estas estrategias como a las diferentes agendas de reforma de la formación docente: la agenda de la profesionalización, la agenda de la desregulación, la agenda de la regulación y la agenda de la justicia social. Aunque representan distintas perspectivas de la formación docente, estas agendas no son mutuamente excluyentes.

"The teaching practice vs. teaching ethics". Towards teaching practice improvement through teaching ethics

Emilio Crisol Moya; Mª Asunción Romero López

Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers, 2014, Volume 5, Issue 2, Pages -

There is an increasing demand of a suitable ethic professional training for teachers on the part of society; it has been noticed in the last few years that the moral nature in education is being highlighted in every sphere, but mainly in the one we deal with, that is teacher training. Therefore, this demands to include ethics in higher education syllabi. This would prevent ethics in professional teacher training from being left out, as something optional or even subsidiary, and give it its place as a systematic component in pedagogical training. Professional training cannot be restricted to transmit objective knowledge; moral issues, cognitive aspects, and technical abilities should merge in order to acquire an adequate professionalism. That is the reason why along this paper it is proposed to deepen in the study of ethical identity as it may be an interesting contribution to the improvement of teaching practice, whenever it stimulates personal and shared reflection about our own vital project, moral and professional attitudes, moral context in teaching and about the possibilities everyone has to turn improvable aspects into positive.

Gregorio Villegas Cobián; María D. Aponte Correa

Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers, 2014, Volume 5, Issue 2, Pages -

Lifelong values have a fundamental importance in the history and life of the human being. They configured society and the individual thru educational laws, in which the type of man to form is reflected. This study examines the hierarchy of values in the First Decree on Education in Puerto Rico. It will also evaluate the impact of Spain educational laws in Puerto Rican reality. It uses the analysis of axiological content method, and data interpretation from a historiographical perspective in 19th century context. One of the conclusions which we have reached, is that the hierarchy of this Decree, is marked by values: intellectual, temporal, social, instrumental and spatial.

Carla Isabel Mota Carvalho; Sónia Mafalda Ribeiro

Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers, 2014, Volume 5, Issue 2, Pages -

This study aims to explore the thematic as far as the consequences of conjugal violence on female victims are concerned, especially in the context of the Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. PTSD in the context of conjugal violence has been a neglected area of research. In Portugal we have no knowledge of studies in this area. This was our main motivation for the present text. The main goals are the analysis of the relations between conjugal violence and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and the personal net. This study was developed in a sample constituted by 63 women who had been victims of conjugal violence and who were sheltered by institutions aimed for those cases. The instruments used were the Evaluation Scale of the Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and the Social- Biographic Questionnaire. Our study is considered a non-experimental research which aims to empirically test the relationship between Domestic Violence and PTSD, and between social characteristics and PTSD. In this research design the target population is selected based on experiences we intend to analyze that have already occurred. Statistical analysis was performed with SPSS statistical analysis program (Statistical Package for Social Sciences), version 16.0.

Teaching practices of memorable university professors. The student as an anthropological peer.

Luis Porta; Graciela Flores

Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers, 2014, Volume 5, Issue 2, Pages -

This article discusses some findings from our research on the good teaching practices of a professor of the chair Introduction to Philosophy at Mar del Plata State University, Argentina. Such professor belongs to the group â��žmemorable teachers�x signalled as such by their advanced students. She regards her students as anthropological peers, and this is evidenced in her teaching, since she privileges the affective bond and favours certain ethic and political dimensions. We attempt to further our understanding of good university teaching through ethnographic records, an interview to the professor, surveys to the students, a class journal, testimonies and reference materials, for as Liwtin (2012) claims, research into good teaching practices calls for the identification of classroom work and the analysis of empirical data.

The Profile of the students as prosumers in web 2.0

Javier Sarsa

Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers, 2014, Volume 5, Issue 2, Pages -

Since the beginning of the Web 2.0, many authors state that the 2.0 educational possibilities are huge and that 2.0 full exploitation has not been still achieved. There are numerous discrepancies in the consideration of social networks and other 2.0 websites as learning tools. In this paper we are trying to move forward on this question. Therefore, we have carried out a research with students whose average age allows classifying them as digital natives. We wish to know what degree they are using several well-known 2.0 websites and how they place them in respect of the learning opportunities they offer. Also, we propose a simple indicator which helps us know the production-consumption ratio of the students in those websites. The obtained results indicate that a high percentage of the studied sample has an absolutely consumer profile. And only a few cases could be described as prosumers or moderate producers. From all of these data, we identify the need for teachers to help their students to unveil the existence of new 2.0 websites related to their subjects and to promote creation, collaboration and publishing tasks which allow the students to overcome the barrier they have in this aspect.

Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers, 2014, Volume 5, Issue 2, Pages -

Every school constitutes a singular case when it comes to changes and improvements as each of them belongs to a social and cultural context with their own idiosyncrasy and needs. This article aims to study 12 in depth a research on educative networks organized in groups of teachers, focusing on its origin, structure, resources, organization and impact. The process of data gathering has followed a descriptivenarrative methodology, based on a qualitative research, and using a questionnaire for advisors in Teachers Centers within Seville, where they inform about the benefits of networking. The results of the analysis show that the development and setting of these networks occur in response to both the need of support that teachers are sometimes missing in their professional day to day; and the requirements of the regional inspection service of education, Servicio de Inspección Educativa, in order to cope with basic difficulties that may arise in the teaching-learning process, such as the reading and writing learning process or the improvement of the coexistence within the educational community. Feedback from this research proves the impact that the networking procedures have had in the educational community and centers, as well as its positive results and improvements in their development.

The public protection and educational intervention with children. The case of juvenile facilities in the Autonomous City of Ceuta

Mercedes Cuevas López; Gema Borrego Muñoz

Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers, 2014, Volume 5, Issue 2, Pages -

This work analyzes how the system of child protection in the Autonomous City of Ceuta is organized that, as a result of lack of legislative competence, requires the study of all juvenile facilities in the city and the analysis of all situations needing protection occurring. From host situations, guardianships, compliance with court orders, ores (unaccompanied minors) to the measures taken when they reach adulthood. As a consequence of the above, to know and appreciate the public child welfare system in the autonomous city of Ceuta, we must approach the problem from different perspectives: legal, organizational structure of the area of child protection and organization and operation of schools hosting minors. The methodology of the case study, as well as the triangulation of information sources and diversity of instruments for data collection allowed us to achieve the goals outlined in the study. According to the documentary analysis, we can say that all the regulations developed by the Autonomous City of Ceuta are organizational, establishing the functions of the various organs, administrative units and their composition, but with little normative content in relation to the way to provide services provided for the effective exercise of protection of childhood and adolescence. From the information gathered throughout questionnaires and interviews with key informants, we highlight the existence of an implication between center workers and children, which is able to replace emotional relationships of a family home, so the time children spend in the center fulfills its functions of protection and / or rehabilitation. Finally, as the most significant result of the non-participant observation, we note that, although the center directors had shown good organization and adequate resources, it has been confirmed that, in certain aspects, the information provided does not conform to reality. The findings of the study are presented, based on the strengths and weaknesses identified, a number of recommendations related to possible legislative, regulatory, organizational, and procedural improvements.

Innovative methodologies to promote teachers emotional competences

Ascensión Palomares Ruiz

Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers, 2014, Volume 5, Issue 2, Pages -

Teacher training and educational activities have mostly concentrated on learning and knowledge and, to a lesser degree, on learning to live together or on being and doing. The objective of this research, therefore, is to foster the emotional competence of future teachers and offer experiences that demonstrate how important it is to enable a more reflective, ecological and credible professional development. This article presents the design, development and evaluation of an experience carried out during the educational year 2012-2013 at the University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM) on the Teaching Degree course. The activities accomplished enable critical reflection on news articles published in the media and so different ways of learning were studied, encouraging both intra-and interpersonal competence through individual, team and large group activities. A significant improvement could be seen in the emotional competence of the participants, highlighting the fact that this was the first time that they have reflected on and worked specifically on these areas. It has been proven that they have improved the objectives of the subject and learnt to think with their hearts without forfeiting reasoning, both of these aspects needing to go hand in hand for the education of worthy people, in strengthening their maturity and social commitment.The article is relevant for making concrete proposals and demonstrating the need to educate future teachers so that they can learn to discover and evaluate their emotions, achieving to listen, see, interpret and promote emotional competencies of students and leading to a change of the relationship and atmosphere within the educational context. Thus, the main novelty of the study lies in the goals intended, providing a relevant and innovative change within teacher training.

Argyris Kyridis; Maria Avramidou; Christos Zagkos; Anastasia Christodoulou; Maria Pavli-Korre

Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers, 2014, Volume 5, Issue 2, Pages -

The purpose of the research is to identify the views of education department students (from elementary and pre-school education departments), namely potential teachers, on the ideal teacher. This study attempts to map diverse views on the role and image of the teacher inherent in social discourse as social experience, regardless of whether or not there is special knowledge. The authors asked 588 students from elementary education and pre-school education departments to write a text in which they would describe their views as to what makes a perfect teacher [What, in your opinion, makes an ideal educator?]. For the analysis of the texts, the authors used quantitative and qualitative content analysis (content analysis � classical thematic analysis). The findings of this research in accordance with previous studies, suggest that the teacher��s role and his/her �"ideal� image, are two multidimensional concepts and cannot be defined with absolute precision.

Pilar Pineda-Herrero; María Victoria Moreno Andrés; María del Mar Duran-Bellonch

Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers, 2014, Volume 5, Issue 2, Pages -

The impact of training refers to the effects generated by training in the organization. In this paper we present a research on the impact of several training programs framed in a Training Plan on Rational Use of Medicines in the region of Catalonia (in the northeast of Spain), where almost 3000 health professionals participated. The aim is to evaluate if the training of doctors and nurses decreases the public expenditure  on drugs. The results show that training has not the impact expected on the prescription of medicines, because there are other factors of health organizations that seriously limit the impact of training. These results lead us to carry out proposals for the improvement of the effectiveness of the training programs evaluated, and in parallel to reflect upon the methodological implications and techniques of the evaluation of the impact of training.

A didactic experience of application of a new method to listen to the music of the 21st century

Ana Mª Tornos Culleré; Pilar Lago Castro

Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers, 2014, Volume 5, Issue 2, Pages -

This article explores the possibility of taking a didactic approach that takes as a starting point harmonies of the 21st century and that consequently raises the teenagers' interest and enables them to feel appreciation for the diverse range of music of today's world. It focuses in the description of the didactic experience of applying a new methodological model of music listening created in the framework of an action research project, which showed promising results. The conditions of the research project, which presented very homogenous groups, made possible the creation of an ad hoc methodology that, using the qualitative analysis, enabled us to explore subtle differences in the listening modalities of students who used the new method and the control group, which didn't follow the new method.

This proposal includes a series of steps to include ABI in the academic design of a graduate program and emerges as a pilot between some universities in Ecuador imbricar interested in the process of research in the design of their masters.

Analysis and interpretation of models of citizenship, identities and participation in state legislation on education for citizenship and human rights in primary education

Erika González García

Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers, 2014, Volume 5, Issue 2, Pages -

The exercise of citizenship is one of the fundamental indicators denoting the quality of our democracies. At present, the great majority of citizens do not hesitate to accept that democracy is the best political form of organization. But even though democratic political models prevail, certain formative lacks remain. This is one of the reasons why the subject of Education for Citizenship was implemented in the Spanish curriculum. One of the schoolâ����s social functions, and of the Stateâ����s educational aims, is that of transmitting a series of democratic values with the goal of achieving â���social cohesionâ��. These principles are common to any type of citizenship. This article analyses from an interpretative and critical perspective what models of citizenship, identities and political culture are reflected in the current legislation, namely, the Organic Law on Education, and in the Royal Decree and Order which develop this subject in primary Education.

José Mª Fernández Batanero

Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers, 2014, Volume 5, Issue 2, Pages -

The European Union has opted for a society of knowledge in Europe and considers that the fight against school failure is one of its main priorities. Indeed, the number of school failure is one of the five fundamental educational objectives to meet face to 2020. Spain is one of the countries affected, as we overcome academic failure of the EU average. The aim of the study is to identify effective practices in education to address the issue of failure amongst pupils in secondary schools. The study follows a descriptive research methodology, designed in the form of a case study. The results indicate the effectiveness of the learning strategies used and the satisfaction and commitment of the teaching staff. The results generated a list of factors which contribute to the development of good practice in education. The conclusions include that learning and teaching strategies aimed at organising, teaching and planning for inclusive education are shown to be real weapons in the fight against early school-leaving. The participation of all the relevant sectors is essential if the school is to see itself as a unit of exchange or a research space which incorporates differentiation into its processes of innovation.

Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers, 2014, Volume 5, Issue 2, Pages -

This study aims to analyze and establish the rates of victimization and its possible relationship with sociodemographic variables in adolescents 13-16 years of Granada (Spain). The participation of a total of 2,273 adolescents allowed the registration and evaluation of the Victimization variables (scale of Victimization at School), Type of School (or Concerted Public/Private), Gender, Place of Residence and Age. The results showed that this study are characterized by higher rates of victimization among adolescents living outside of the family, belonging to aided schools/private, similar by gender and age, also noted that physical type of victimization is more common in males and relational in women, and for all parameters analyzed using regression, the type of school affects more on verbal and physical victimization and gender in relational type. The main conclusion indicated the need to explore further the adolescent population in an attempt to elucidate the casuistry of these results, and implement programs to try to reduce aggressive behavior and potential victims of schools.

Is there any place for using arts when teaching economics?

Raúl de Arriba Bueno; María Vidagañ Murgui

Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers, 2014, Volume 5, Issue 2, Pages -

The need to promote the development of skills that encourage reflection, critical thinking, imagination, etc. is fundamental to learning Economics. Therefore, the promotion of creativity can play a central role in the transformation of teaching practices at universities. The aim of this paper is to examine the opportunities of the use of arts as an educational tool for stimulating creativity when teaching Economics. The reasons that recommend the change in educational practices in higher education in the specific case of teaching Economics are identified. In this context, the central role that creativity should play in the transformation of higher education is underlined. The analysis of the art as educational tool through an experience at the classroom shows that, despite the opportunities offered by this approach, their use in the teaching of nonarts subjects is still very scarce at universities. Lastly, the article suggests some future lines of research as the problem of how to evaluate the creativity of college students and how to evaluate the impact of the arts in learning Economics and in the skills associated to creativity.

Employability at the Spanish University

Belén S. Lantarón

Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers, 2014, Volume 5, Issue 2, Pages -

In the last century, the labor market has been changed both from a sociological, as from the economic and technological point of view. These changes have led to the disappearance of some types of employment and the emergence of others. In this context, concerns about the socio- labor integration of people is the ultimate goal of policy and education and open a debate on employability in which the university is not left outside. But how can the Spanish universities optimize the employability of their graduates? This issue is addressed in the present study, using as fundamental methodology a literature and web pages of the universities (public and private) review. The results show that the employability is links to different factors that influence it, concluding that must be treated as a shared responsibility. Obviously, the responsibility of the universities is emphasized, as an educational institution, to improve the employability of their graduates, noting that Spanish universities have two strategies that help optimize it: the design of new curricula and an adequate offer of professional counseling services

Transmitting and educating: meanings, reviews and possibilities

Elizabeth Bárbara Jesica Montenegro; Lucía María Condenanza

Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers, 2014, Volume 5, Issue 2, Pages -

Transmission lies at the root not only of the school problem but also of the educational one, and in turn of life and social fabric as condition for cultural construction, enrollment and cultural identity. Based on this approach, the topic is dealt with taking the following questions as the starting point: What are the senses given to the concept of transmission in the pedagogical field? What other fields can contribute to the topic under discussion? What is the relationship between transmission and education? We propose a theoretical discussion of some notions which enable the term �Stransmission⬝ to be disposed of its negative connotation and which enable its redefinition, creating implications in the pedagogical field. Finally, we reflect upon transmission in the educating action; therefore, we take contributions from authors from different disciplinary fields and analyse a film scene. In turn, we link transmission processes to the educability notion as a unique feature of human beings. We believe that the redefinition of the term in the pedagogical field allow us to think of transmission as leading subjects to build their own paths. In this approach, to educate means basically to create the conditions for the subject�"s symbolic affiliation through the transmission of cultural heritage, making it possible to redefine what has been received and to make changes, in exercise of our freedom.

Secundary Education in parallel: Uruguay-Spain

Alberto Picón Martínez; Rufino González Fernández

Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers, 2014, Volume 5, Issue 2, Pages -

This is part of a research accomplished in Secondary School Institutes from Galicia in order to compare to Public Education System in Uruguay. The outcomes may anticipate similar situations in other different contexts which are following their footsteps. During the research we have got evidence that faculty meetings as decision making authority of the institute have not succeed in solving the problem of student failure in compulsory secondary school. Educational process centered on the student, and his right to appropriate the resources necessary for adult life, seem to be opposed to selective pedagogic practices inherited from pre-college high school. Time has come to develop a new approach to evaluate student performance: an inclusive assessment. Criteria and instruments call for a teacher�xs commitment which should be defined and agreed according to the necessities of the students in each and every school. But, this might collide with centralized bureaucratic decisions of public system. It occurs both, in Spain and in Uruguay. Teacher training seems to be the cornerstone for school strategic planning; and principal leadership, the component which brings cohesion to the whole effort.

Elena Jiménez Pérez; Juan de Dios Villanueva Roa

Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers, 2014, Volume 5, Issue 2, Pages -

Andalucía usually go badly in the PIRLS and PISA reports on reading comprehension, therefore, know how and when our students begin to have contact with reading and writing is the indisputable starting point to warn what learning mechanisms are well structured from the start and what should be improved. All this information forms the seed knowledge readingwriting in our students. From these data, and their findings and useful insights to adapt the methodology and to build the basis for further studies as a new step in the knowledge base of reading comprehension in Andalusia. When, how and how write and read their first words, what and why.

Noemí Serrano Díaz; Rocío Guil Bozal

Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers, 2014, Volume 5, Issue 2, Pages -

Burnout syndrome has become particularly relevant in recent decades due to a large increase in its prevalence in the workplace. This syndrome when suffered by teachers affects the quality of education and therefore in their students. This study examines the prevalence of burnout in a sample of teachers of Early Childhood Education in the Bay of Cadiz (N = 91) and the possible influence that several psychosocial factors perform. To measure the burnout scale the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) is used. Our results show how being female, positions of academic management and the number of components of the family unit act as a protective factor against the burned teacher. With regard to the age, our results reveal that there is a positive and statistically significant correlation with the syndrome (seniority meaninghigher levels of correlation).

Idevis Lores Leyva; Félix Díaz Pompa; Onaida Calzadilla González

Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers, 2014, Volume 5, Issue 2, Pages -

The dyslexia and dysgraphia constitute disorders of the written language which generate one of the first causes of the school failure. The development of study with 20 children having this disorder in the school primary Fabio Rosell in Guantánamo municipality, during the period 2010-2012 offers evidences of the necessity to improve the logopedic help that is offered. Based on these aspects, the objective we propose is to model a system of logopedic procedures to assist children with these disorders. The employment of theoretical, empiric and mathematical methods, they evidence the theoretical inadequacies and existent practices in the process of logopedic help in the primary education and the results derived from the application of the proposal made were also confirmed. The study proved the necessity of improving the process of logopedic help based on the understanding of the disorders of the written language and their individual manifestation. The value of the system of logopedic procedures was also corroborated as a support for the phono-analytic-synthetic method.
