The 1st Working After-Seminar Day

10 October, 2011

VIII Seminar Group

Cordial greetings!

During two days we had been discussing variety of issues in teacher training: reconsidering teachers’ roles in our VIII International Seminar in Barcelona last week. Presentations of our keynote speakers and demo presenters were followed by rich debates.

Today is the first working “after” day, and we are tiding up all the information created during the seminar. What we share today is just a tip of the iceberg, still it may be of interest of the participants, those who were lucky enough to be with us face-to-face but also those following it through live streaming and twitter.

Firstly, a few words about some stats of the seminar. We had 86 attendees from 20 different countries. During the seminar, almost 1500 tweets were generated; we will analyze them in more detail. Tweets were promoted and curated by César Córcoles, who took care of the @UOCunescochair Twitter account during the seminar. Ismael Peña was in charge of live blogging, doing an excellent work summarizing each of the talks in real time:

Last, but not least, the seminar also generated some beautiful noise around it. Currently now we can highlight the following, but we expect this list to grow with all your post-seminar activity:

Learning with e’s By Steve Wheeler ( )


Grow or Pay By Hanna Teräs ( )


School Networking By Sigi Jakob ( )


In the following days we will be posting additional resources related to the seminar, such as speakers’ presentations, video recordings, your comments, etc. Therefore, don’t forget to subscribe to our blog in order to keep up to date. And, of course, if you have any idea, comment or request, do not hesitate to contact us through commenting this very same entry or our email catedraunesco[at]

Thank you for having been with us and keeping in touch!
