A Template for Project Planning

In this short post, I’m sharing the template I use for planning projects. The template is based on a template Prof. Rubén Mazzei (Coordinador de Inglés en el Nivel Secundario, Equipo Técnico Central, Dirección Provincial de Educación Superior y Capacitación Educativa) shared in an in-service teacher training course on implementing the curriculum design of secondary education in Buenos Aires Province.

If you’d like to learn about the rationale behind this template, please read 4xC + 3xA + 6xT = My way of doing project work. You can read some negative feedback on a project for a Technical secondary school that was planned using the template below here. You can download the project here.

I’ve adapted the template so that it also meets the requirements usually imposed by school authorities. This version of the template is licensed under  a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported Lincence.

A Project for a Technical Secondary School

As you know, negative feedback, despite hurtful it can be felt to be, helps us notice the weaknesses, shortcomings, flaws, errors and mistakes in our everyday professional practice. So, it gives us an opportunity to go on learning and improving. That’s why I decided to share some negative feedback that I got from Prof. Stella Maris Saubidet Oyhamburu. Prof. Saubidet Oyhamburu reviewed this project and said:

• si bien hay learning objectives, no veo TEACHING OBJECTIVES.

• dentro de los learning objectives, como son tantos, no veo jerarquías entre ellos. Se los podría distribuir, por ejemplo, en prioritarios y secundarios

• me parece que si bien los learning objectives son para proyecto anual, siguen siendo muchos, difícil de evaluar fehacientemente, a pesar de las herramientas planteadas

• me parece que las herramientas Web 2.0 también son demasiadas. ¿Se podrán usar TODAS? Ojo: siempre depende de tus posibilidades tecnológicas, conectividad, y otras cuestiones

• La sección de interdisciplinariedad, ¿no es DEMASIADO ambiciosa? ¿Tantas materias?

• en función de lo magnamente ambicioso del proyecto, me parece que la repercusión pública quedó un poco “flacucha”. La publicación del material generado por los alumnos en el blog no genera espontáneamente “comunicación con otros hablantes”

• fijate que a priori, sin conocer a tus alumnos, la escuela, etc, siempre te objeto lo mismo: el proyecto muestra un profundo desarrollo intelectual, pedagógico y técnico, aunque no tendría que quedar en ello, sino que debería ser attainable, if you know what I mean.

En general el proyecto me pareció excelente, sólo te hago estos comentarios porque me pediste que fuera crítica y te dijera qué se podía mejorar.

As you can see, I’ve still got to polish up this project 😉

English through ICT

This is just a short post to share a yearly project that I wrote for E. E. S. T. No. 8 Almafuerte in Lanús, Buenos Aires Province, the technical secondary school where I work. The project is written in Spanish since in Argentina it is supposed to be written in this official language.

If you’d like to learn about the rationale behind this project and/or download the template I used, please, respectively read 4xC + 3xA + 6xT = My way of doing project work and go to A Template for Project Planning. If you’d like to read some negative feedback on this project, go to A Project for a Technical Secondary School Reblogged.
