New learning environments in IPE: a classroom experience of math and sciences

This was the theme and the challenge addressed to me. This Friday the 2/19/2016 held the first part of the Pedagogical Days in IPE (Instituto dos Pupilos do Exército) and the AE das Laranjeiras.

The program included the following speakers:

Opening – IPE, School Headmaster Coronel Miranda Soares;
• Performance of the Choral and Instrumental Group of IPE, which featured the work of Professor Irene Alexio;
  • Literacy, education and school librarychallenges and responses, Dr Luis Salema, School Teacher Manuel Teixeira Gomes (Portimão);
  • New learning environments in IPE: a classroom experience of mathematics and natural sciences, Dr José Marques,  math teacher in IPE;

Closing Dr. Hamilcar Santos, Director of the AE Laranjeiras.

My presentation was essentially in what I do with my students and in what I believe to be a response for current challenges to school and teachers.

Let us begin by thinking, what are the existing professions in 10 years? In 10 years, our students are entering the job market, what to expect? Will the school provided and developed the capabilities and responded to their needs? In addition I shared my experience while Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert and my last ten years in this initiative. And I talk about my Skype in the Classroom experience, OneNote with students, presentations in Sway, ando so much more.

“Novos ambientes de aprendizagem no IPE”

Esta foi a temática e o desafio que me foi lançado. Esta sexta-feira, dia 19/02/2016 decorreu a primeira parte das II Jornadas Pedagógicas do IPE (Instituto dos Pupilos do Exército) e do AE Laranjeiras.

Do programa constaram as seguintes intervenções:

  • Abertura – por parte do Sr. Diretor Coronel Miranda Soares, do IPE
  • Atuação do Grupo Coral e Instrumental do IPE, que contou com o trabalho da professora Irene Aleixo;
  • Comunicações:
    • “Literacia, pedagogia e biblioteca escolar- desafios e respostas”, Dr Luís Salema, Professor na Escola Secundária Manuel Teixeira Gomes (Portimão);
    • “Novos ambientes de aprendizagem no IPE: uma experiência em sala de aula de Matemática e Ciências Naturais”, Dr José Marques, professor de Matemática do IPE
  • Encerramento – Dr Amílcar Santos, Diretor do AEL

A minha apresentação recaiu essencialmente naquilo que faço com os meus alunos e naquilo que acredito que é uma resposta aos desafios atuais que são colocados à escola e aos professores.

Comecemos então por pensar, quais serão as profissões existentes daqui a 10 anos? Daqui a 10 anos os nossos alunos estão a ingressar o mercado de trabalho, o que os espera? Terá a escola providenciado e desenvolvido as capacidades e respondido às suas necessidades? Para além disso partilhei a minha experiência enquanto Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert e os meus últimos dez anos nesta iniciativa.

Surface experience with Stylus Pen and Ink

The technology has evolved and “touch” screns has become an extremely common habit.

From small electronic devices, through the mobile phones, automobile screens and laptops Tablet gained its ground and they are here to stay. Combining the power of the best of two worlds , lightness and performance of a laptop with a tablet version, Surface gained my trust.

Lightweight, strong, fast and very efficient Surface Pro3 brings a Stylus Pen and the experience is amazing!

Criticized by some as something superfluous and unnecessary, my experience as a teacher, it is very positive. I say this because during my classes while students work and develop the tasks in OneNote I can highlight, alert and correct, in real time, what students are doing. This in loco feedback is essential for them.
