The Regional Ministry of Education and Sport has selected IES Entresierras as an inspirational centre for the 1st International Congress on Educational Innovation.
The meeting took place on 19 and 20 November in Malaga. 24 stands were exhibited by the different innovative educational centres. Of these 24 centres, 12 were chosen, including IES Entresierras, which also participated through a conference in an activity called “experiences of inspiring centres”.
Mari Carmen Domene and Andrés Franco, teachers from IES Entresierras, travelled to Malaga to present the experience of IES Entresierras and the work carried out with the robotics group of the “Ramón González” school, within the framework of the Andalucía Profundiza programme, during the 2020/2021 academic year. “The Burxana challenge” was the project developed by the young students, and included the creation of an App from which they can control various domotised figures that developed the various tests of the Moorish Games of Purchena.
This congress is a firm commitment on the part of the Regional Ministry of Education and Sport of the Andalusian Regional Government to ensure that education continues to advance along the path of innovation.
Aimed at Andalusian teachers of all education and stages of the education system (Pre-school and Primary Education, Secondary and Baccalaureate, Vocational Training, Languages, Arts and Sports) and with a maximum capacity for 400 teachers, this event has had valuable contributions of the highest level in the field of innovation.
The aim of the 1st International Conference on Educational Innovation in Andalusia is to link, promote and highlight all the innovative actions that are currently being developed in our Community, as well as to encourage schools and teachers with new initiatives that provide answers to the challenges posed by today’s society with a focus on the future.
The venue chosen for this 1st congress was the Palacio de Ferias in Malaga, in the form of an exhibition fair, where the different educational centres set up stands so that the innovative centres of our community could show their experiences.
A new success for IES Entresierras thanks to the effort, participation and interest of the students and above all to the dedication of the teaching staff, who are always looking to innovate and improve in order to contribute to achieving the best possible education.
