And it arrived: Dream Big Challenge RENFE!

It was a great experience to solve a challenge throwed up to RENFE: how improve user experience in the long distance by train?

Most assistants were young people that they would to get a ticket to Imagine Express: 4-day trip by train through Barcelona-Paris-London, ending at the 4YFN - Mobile World Congress 2019 (February 22th to February 25th). Who want not to try it?


The best takeaway that all of participants gained it was that they understood for 3 hours they were able to build a project, just 3 hours. That is the greater in the day. Thanks, Imagine! Thanks Xavier Verdaguer!

Today was a different day. I've gone to annual meeting of alliance 360. I'm going to explain it a little bit.

That's one of the Fundació Bofill projects. Educació 360, Educació a temps complet wants anyone children have more and better education opportunities in whole spaces and time and connecting education and knowledge between school time and after school time. Every child and young must build your vital route with equity without exclusions. This is a big challenge because is very difficult working together: schools, entities, local authorities, ...

Meeting had different parts divided at morning and afternoon. At morning the activities were to understand and thinking the challenge. At the afternoon it showed real projects around the world and in our area as well, all related with the 360.

My role in this day was to be one of the enablers in the workshop at the morning, specifically my workshop was about how we can build community plans focused in 360 Education.

In Education one of the trends is this new view. We must give to our children and young the same opportunities to build your future from society, schools and entities. Are we ready?

I've just arrived from enjoying the Cirque du Soleil show like a child. I have loved it, but, in my opinion, it has missed it the circus numbers. Maybe, it's new business line, more focused on scenography, one bit more as a theatre.

Today I have visited Caixa Forum with my vocational training students. They have done a workshop about career guidance. It hadn't been there, for a long time. I remembered one of time that I was there, invited from FECC, to explain how I was training with my students the entrepreneurship competencies from Service Learning Programs. It was a good experience.

In this course, in two of my classes in lower and higher vocational training, I will use simulation-based management training program that integrates and reinforces knowledge and skills learned in previous courses and current as well.
I will use a simulation software, called Empresaula. It gives me very possibilities, specially, in customized assessment of students. 

The simulation employs a competitive market environment in which students build a business from the ground up to enter the new business created by them.  The teams are tasked with introducing a new line of products or services into several national markets: other students that they are learning with this methodology. 

The simulation requires students to form executive teams consisting of seven or eight members. Within each team, students work as the head or worker of specific functional areas. Throughout the decision rounds, they conduct market analyses, make tactical decisions with regards to product design, manufacturing capacity, inventory management, human resource management, sales channel planning, advertising, and financial accounting (a little bit).

On the one hand, by students, simulation-based management training program is motivating to students because they are learning by doing and it does that, they are actives all the class. For example, if they arrive it a sale from other company, they must to send it, because they need that team and company run well and they can reach to proposed goals.

On the other hand, by the teachers, to start this methodology imply significant work because it must have both the clear objectives to teams and to every student as well. Moreover, teacher must conduct executive briefings on a weekly basis. Each team meets with him for about fifteen minutes to discuss and justify the decisions that they are planning to make for the next fortnight. It's true, that's more work in the beginning, but when you can see all students involved in your company is very pleasant. 

In summary, Simulation-based pedagogy offers an experiential learning process that emphasizes repeated action, reflection, accommodation, and testing. This process allows students to refine their knowledge and developed business skills. As such, simulation based-pedagogy can be implemented in any subject. This is experiential learning opportunity for all students to develop an understanding of business with a fun, intro-level business simulation.

Today I've been in Vilanova i la Geltru as one of invited people to see how more than 180 people representatives chosen of all institutions included in Escola Pia de Catalunya like a teacher, non-teaching staff, students and families, they talked, dialogued and, essentially, they decided which policies will carry out during next four years. 

In fact, I think that the "Assemblea de las Institucions Educativas d'Escola Pia de Catalunya” is one of the best process to decide together the direction where we want to go to the coming four years. 

This process has different phases. Firstly, all workers, parents and students in each one of institutions of Escola Pia de Catalunya they raised which could be the policies. Secondly, a commission of each institution decided which of these they should be send to Escola Pia de Catalunya head centre. Thirdly, from Escola Pia de Catalunya, they organized all sent policies and they again asked them (to all people involved in the institution) which of these should be   voted in the "Assemblea". 

Finally, at the present day and thanks this process, it has been possible to know which the policies during would be next four years. 

In summary, from today to 2023, most of resources of the Institution will be meant to 2 chosen policies:
1. To strengthen and to implement the innovation project SUMMEM in whole educational stages.
2. To transform the culture of assessment in order to become formative, competency and global.

Good luck to next four years!
