Communications: Research and Society

The purpose of this session is to encourage discussion among the participants around the challenges that currently arise in the field of education. The session aims to become a meeting place where the latest breakthroughs in educational research and some innovative proposals that indicate the trends of transformation and improvement predominant in the educational world are presented and analysed.

The session will be developed under the modality of “PechaKucha”.

  1. Presentations will be held that trigger reflection and discussion in a synthetic way through 20 images shown for 20 seconds each. The objective is to focus the attention of the participants in a creative and striking way on the most nuclear aspects of the projects and proposals submitted.
  2. Afterwards, an open space for debate will be opened among all the participants, aimed at linking, analysing and complementing the ideas presented, identifying those common nuclei that discern future ways of progress in different educational contexts.
