2ND DIGITAL TRAINING SESSION

 

ON THE 10TH OF APRIL, BILITRAMS' MEMBERS MET AT CEIP PINTOR FELIX REVELLO DE TORO FOR THE 2ND DIGITAL TRAINING SESSION.

THE SESSION STARTED WITH THE PRESENTATION OF THE GOOGLE SITES BILITRAMS BY OUR TRAINER JUAN ANTONIO PÉREZ, WHO SHOWED US HOW EACH SCHOOL CAN ACCESS THE WEBSITE AND HOW TO EDIT IT. 

THEN WE GOT ORGANIZED INTO WORKING TEAMS TO DECIDE ON THE FORM, STRUCTURE, SCRIPT AND THE DIFFERENT SECTIONS OF OUR WEBSITE. WE DISTRIBUTED THE WORK THAT WE DIDN'T HAVE TIME TO FINISH BY CENTERS AND WE HAVE UNTIL MAY 15TH TO FINISH IT. 

WE ALSO DEALT WITH COLLABORATIVE CANVA OR GOOGLE DRIVE. IT WAS DECIDED THAT THE STORAGE OR REPOSITORY OF MATERIAL FOR OUR LANGUAGE ASSISTANTS WILL BE CARRIED OUT THROUGHOUT A GOOGLE DRIVE CREATED ESPECIALLY FOR BILITRAMS AND THAT WILL ALSO BE LINKED TO OUR WEBSITE. EACH SCHOOL WILL UPLOAD ITS MATERIALS THROUGH DOCUMENTS WITH LINKS, OR DIRECTLY SAVE THE PRESENTATIONS. 

THE SESSION ENDED AT 7.00 P.M. WITH A SWEET SNACK AND A GROUP PHOTO, WITH THE SATISFACTION OF HAVING PRODUCED IMPORTANT AND NECESSARY WORK IN THE BILINGUAL FIELD. 

THANKS TO EVERYONE !!

FIRST TRAINING SESSION AND MARCH MEETING

 

ON THE 6TH OF MARCH,  BILITRAMS’ MEMBERS MET AT CEIP SALVADOR ALLENDE’S LIBRARY IN ORDER TO CARRY OUT THE FIRST TRAINING SESSION OF THIS YEAR.  THE TRAINER IS A TEACHER OF OUR SCHOOL, JUAN ANTONIO PÉREZ, AND WE ALSO HAD THE VISIT FROM FRANCISCA ALBARRÁN, THE PERSON IN CHARGE OF OUR  WORKGROUP.

THIS SESSION STARTED WITH A MOTIVATIONAL VIDEO IN ORDER TO REFLECT ON THE NEED OF MODERNIZE TEACHING, SINCE TIMES HAVE CHANGED.  WE DID AN ACTIVITY  RELATED TO COLLABORATIVE LEARNING ABOUT DIGITAL TOOLS, CALLED “FOLIO GIRATORIO”.

APART FROM LEARNING NEW DIGITAL TOOLS PROVIDED BY THE TRAINER, WE MADE SOME DECISIONS ABOUT HOW TO CARRY OUT THE WORK WE WANT TO DEVELOP.  ON THE OTHER HAND, IN A COLLABORATIVE WAY, WE ARE GOING TO CREATE A RESOURCE BANK FOR LANGUAGE ASSSISTANTS AND TEACHERS.  FINALLY, THIS TEAM WANTS TO DEVELOP A WEB PAGE, USING GOOGLE SITES, TO SHOW SOME INITIAL TRAINING GUIDELINES TO HELP NEW LANGUAGE ASSISTANTS WHEN THEY ARRIVE TO SCHOOLS.

TO FINISH, IT WAS A VERY PRODUCTIVE SESSION, FULL OF GOOD ENERGY AND WITH A SWEET TEA!

THANKS EVERYBODY!

BILITRAMS' CARNIVAL 2024

BILITRAMS' team has fulfilled another dream... to celebrate Carnival with children from our 5 schools all together. 

It was a difficult task, specially for the amount of students involved... around 500... but we did it! 

Last Friday, February the 16th, nearly 500 children and their teachers gathered in the UMA's sport centre. The excuse was to celebrate Carnival, but apart from the parade, and some singing (La chirigota: We are BILITRAMS), they also made lots of new friends with the activities: "Find someone who" and "My friend's costume". It was so much fun!

We are leaving here some photos and videos from the event, and the documents we used for the activities. 




Next meeting: 5th March in CEIP Salvador Allende.   See you all soon!

THE EFFECT OF “MAGICAL WORD - MAGICAL WORLD”: BILITRAMS

 

El 17 de Enero de este año 2024, el Equipo Bilitrams se desplaza al CEIP RECTORA ADELAIDA DE LA CALLE (29011412) para desplegar las fauces de  su reunión. 

Una vez que el Equipo penetra en el Salón de Actos se introduce de lleno en una extraña ambientación, la recreación de una sesión conjunta de  brujos y brujas al tiempo que el impulso de la razón de ser de la magia: transportarnos a otro mundo que nos cautiva y que otorga vía libre a nuestras energías vitales.

Iniciamos la sesión con una reflexión compartida de lo que es el mundo adulto, de los condicionantes, como el factor tiempo, que hacen que se obvie algo que es esencial: el pararse a respirar serenamente y dejar la mente limpia para que la relajación cobre vida.

Una decoración con pócimas mágicas, libros de seres fantásticos y utensilios diferentes de un mundo paralelo ocupan un pequeño escenario. Y, por último, un ritual de tranquilidad donde cada miembro Bilitrams otorga luz a su propia vela.

Tras esta actividad, se desarrolla cada uno de los epígrafes contenidos en nuestra Segunda Acta, con fecha de 17 de Enero de 2024, y se despide la reunión con el elemento clásico de finalización de cualquier reunión Bilitrams: merienda compartida, diplomas y detalle de marca-páginas como muestras afectuosas.

Próxima parada:  evento del 16 de Febrero.

Gracias EQUIPO BILITRAMS porque sois MAGIA❤ E. Jurado

BILITRAMS IX

 We start this 9th edition of BILITRAMS with renewed energy and lots of projects for this new school year! 

We met for the first time this year on the 22nd of November, in CEIP Los Morales, where we celebrated our now traditional Thanksgiving tea in honour of our American language assistants (five of them attended the meeting). This edition also puts them at the centre of our learning process, as we are going to establish a protocol to receive them at school, issue them initial training, and have a material and resources repository they all can share.

We also decided to carry out a Carnival parade in February next year with classes from the five schools in the Romeral-Teatinos neighbourhood.

These are going to be very exciting experiences for us teachers, our students and our schools' communities in general.

Here you have some photos of the meeting. We are bigger than ever! Hurray for BILITRAMS!
