Service Learning Experiences in the Master's Degree in Teacher Training

Learning and Education of Technology

  • Coordination: Dolors Puigjaner Riba (dolors.puigjaner@urv.cat)
  • Community organizations: Serra de Miramar High School, Primary School Sagrat Cor, Antoni Martí i Franquès High School, Roseta Mauri High School
  • Summary: This experience gives Master's Degree students the opportunity to learn a teaching methodology in a practical and first hand way and, at the same time, provide a social service to the community. Students act as a catalyst for interactive groups at "Miramar Valls" High School, a Learning Community that promotes learning dialogue and puts into practice the teaching methodology of interactive groups. This method requires the presence and collaboration of adults in the classroom, who voluntarily act as dynamic adults with interactive groups. Moreover, this experience provides Master's Degree students (and future high-school teachers) with an approach to high school students and develops an interactive and enriching methodology in the classroom. Thanks to this collaboration, the institute has been able to increase the number of subjects that include interactive groups in their teaching planning.

The First Lego League (FLL) is an international program designed to encourage children between 9 and 16 years old to become interested in science and technology while teaching them important values and knowledge. Children must work as a team and use Service Learning methodology. With this experience, Master's Degree students have the opportunity to learn the Service Learning methodology first-hand while, at the same time, providing a social service to the community.
