Texto en español: Convocatoria al II Congreso Internacional de Transformación Educativa

Presentation

The Educational Transformation Council (CTE in Spanish) is an organization which is citizen based, independent, diverse, anti-dogmatic and open to dialog. It integrates thinkers, investigators, teachers, parents and individuals commited with social and cultural life and with education on Mexico and Latin America.

Established subjects and scholar routines contrast with the fast access to multiple technological sources of information and alternative interaction of the new generations. A paradigm shift is needed, towards an inclusive and democratic model which considers diverse alternative proposals and favor dialog and self-management, including contributions from the original native nations. A change is needed in the teaching-learning process in schools, which will have an essential role to overcome the many family issues and to open new paths for social reality transformation.
