The Teacher’s Role

And it does so from these significant spaces, areas, times and activities where they are and do: Corners, streets, cultural centers, bars, clubs … For the young are kept in an educational environment will require delegates accompanying educational, support, suggest, make a bridge, etc. If no such measures enhance care is easier than many young people have special difficulties in the process of social inclusion, so the conflict will worsen further. Since the administration and nonprofit organizations are designed premises, facilities, programs, etc. not suited to all young people and of which are outside those for which very often projected. It happens that accessing these services are least in need and ease of joining are other more informal resources. An open center, for example, is an invaluable service to accommodate adolescents in slums, where the presence of an adult entertainer-educator can give ample room for possible actions and projects.

The role of teacher will always be to encourage, support the transition process, socialize, contribute to the acquisition of autonomy., Without monitor, protect, provide, protect … He knows that to be with them will help build community.

Using Virtual Space Well

Posted by marmara on June 28, 2011

The Internet is recognized as the network of networks enabling us to communicate, find and transfer information without major technological requirements relating to the individual. Introduction It brings together governmental, educational, scientific, Web offering courses, manuals, videtutoriales nonprofit and private companies with commercial interests, making your information available to an audience of more than 50 million people. Today, the Internet has opened the doors to the virtual distance education mode, Maria Fuentes, points out that: It is one in which there is no need physical contact between teacher and student so that the process takes place learning (…) allows access to a wide range of training without the time or space are already a barrier. In this sense it is important to note that the student may be in the comfort of your home or vacation anywhere in the world and be receiving appropriate instruction via the Web. It offers courses, workshops, postgraduate, master, professional online so you can give stakeholders a barrier-free education and your fingertips.

Also, Rafael E. Diaz Bello argues that: The virtual space, whose best exponent is the Internet is not face, but representational, not proximal, distal, but is not synchronous, but asynchronous, and not based on spatial enclosures internal border and outside, but depends on electronic networks whose nodes of interaction may be scattered in different places. In short virtual education takes place at any place and at any time without enclosures accurate thanks to the benefits of the Internet. Virtual education is conducted through the platform calls for the dissemination of knowledge, also known in English Learning Management System (LMS), which are nothing more than an integrated package of software hosted on a server that is accessed from conventional Web browsers, without the user must install on your computer any program, which includes all the tools necessary to offer courses via the Internet or an intranet. Conclusion In conclusion I can say that the Internet is not only a means of communication, but also informative – instructional able to provide a set of tools to implement virtual distance education mode, giving the opportunity for those who by their family duties, personal and professional can not access traditional or formal education, since it is not necessary to be present in a place at a specific time, simply go to an Internet cafe or at least have a Pentium 2 computer with Internet access is sufficient.

You will be surprised how many FCRA and FDCPA violations are committed every day by many collection agencies. Never talk to a collection agency by telephone. Conducting discussions via written form is better because you have proof. Fact: Paying a collection account will not improve your score.

NGOs Under Suspicion

Posted by marmara on June 19, 2011

Every time an NGO has problems generating social unrest. Sometimes, this concern reflects the prejudices of those who reject the activity of the Third Sector. These are people who believe that, at best, a nonprofit institution is a machine of wasting resources. NGOs often call government organizations that receive grants, but are surprised when they said that private companies are far superior and grants are not considered public companies. Other times, these problems serve to justify inhibited about working with NGOs. To have knowledge of any institutional activity such as NGOs, they are accountable to society in a transparent manner. In the private sector, the combination of competition and market making firms that are not efficient disappear.

The same paper carries the democratic system with the public sector. In the Third Sector, the main mechanism of progress and efficiency is the scrutiny of donors, volunteers, media and society in general. And it is only possible with a full and transparent accountability. Accountability and transparency are most useful when they allow the comparison between them, and therefore the election. The government, as the Spanish Agency for International Development or the Ministry of Social Affairs, have monitoring systems to the entities that fund. The NGO Coordinating Committee on Development and other NGO groups have codes of ethics and conduct. However, there is no single registry of foundations and nonprofit associations. In Spain, the Third Sector is composed of thousands of institutions (though the relevant number is closer to 1. 500), which managed a budget of around 1.
