A YEAR AT FLACSO
A year ago by these days we were just about to start a new postgrade on Education and New Tecnologies. The year went by so quickly that a 2 weeks ago this degree was over and now Gladys, Mariana and I me are the new graduates.
The year I spent was great! I had the possibility to grow up professionally with the help of my colleagues. During the course I worked with different teachers from all over Argentina and it was a really great experience to design a Webquest, write an article and complete a project using a wiki. At the beginning it was shocking to see that something you had written the previous night was re-written and none of your words could be seen when opening the wiki. It was hard to see your words to vanish as time went by but it was incredible to see that despite the surface structure was different the deep structure kept ones ideas!!!!!!!!!!
I have learnt quite a lot and read tones of pages! but what I found incredible was to have made such good friends from whom I have learnt a lot, as well. It was really nice to meet them in the flesh. I have also met Gladys for very short times during our breaks before the presentations and I also met Mariana Porta with whom I shared a dinner before coming to Esquel, which is 2000 km away from Buenos Aires.
Now I have my diploma on Education on ICT, but as I want to learn more in a few days I am starting to drive a new road, an specialization on Education and ICT. I know it is going to be hard, but I will try.
WE DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
