All my love

“Equipo docente de ciclo”: they are a type of organization within the schools which are formed by the teachers who give instructions to students in the same cycle (2 years). All of them must work together in order to coordinate, organize, and make all the decisions related to these levels. They are in charge of these students, so they also have to coordinate the tutorial action. They work in a horizontal way, this means that they must work hand by hand to get a unite, continued and meaningful education throughout the duration of these cycles. To get this in a more general vision, they also must coordinate with others teamwork in order to get a continued education throughout the three cycles in Primary Education. They can work efficiently or just being mere formal organizations that not comply with what they are supposed to do within schools. Knowledge can emerge through the connections among teachers within the same teamwork and among the others whole teamwork.

“Departamentos didácticos”: they are a type of organization within the high schools which are formed by the teachers specialized in certain subjects. In this case, all the actions and work are based on the subjects, not around students. They must work together in order to coordinate, organize, to avoid repetitions in the subjects within the levels or classes they teach. They work in a vertical way, this means that teachers must coordinate the subjects to get a continuity, not repetition of contents, sequential to get a cohesion within the courses and levels they teach these subjects. Same as “equipo docente de cycle”, they can work efficiently getting their goals or only being mere formal organizations which do not comply their functions. Knowledge can emerge through the connections among teachers within the same department and among the others whole departments.

“Comisión de Coordinación Pedagógica”: they are organizations within schools and high schools formed by the headmaster, school supervisor and the cycle coordinators (schools) and department manager (high school). They are in charge of setting the “rules” and how schools and high schools must work according to their philosophy. It is like they decide what “equipos docents” and “departamentos didácticos” must do and how. They all together make the biggest decisions in order to organize, follow the directions, decide how to evaluate and so on in all their organizations. Below them, there are the others organizations which put into practice the decisions made by this organization.

“Junta de profesores”: within high schools, there are “Junta de profesores” which are formed by the teachers and the tutor of a group of students. It is managed by the tutor, and all the teachers belong to different departments as each one of them teach a different subject. They just have in common this group of students. Where there are the evaluations, all the teachers from the group of students get together in order to speak about their students, bad and good things or if there are problems to try to solve them out.

“Learning organizations”: schools can also learn, not only to produce knowledge, they can learn if they are able to change, makes self-analyses of itself in order to improve it, work all together and take advantage of the knowledge emerged through such connections. Also it is important to consider changes as learning, learning to improve and chance to grow up as a school and their components as persons and professionals. In these schools, they have the will to learning in different ways: each agent (teachers, head master..); as  a group (all the agents together) and finally, as the whole school.
