SEK Education Group took part in the IB Global Conference that was held in Dublin, and whose theme was ‘Education for an inclusive future’. The event, which was attended by Nieves Segovia, president of SEK-Education Group, took place at the Dublin Convention Centre from 5 to 8 October, and featured a notable participation from SEK-Dublin students, who offered a musical performance at the inauguration.
Other attendees from SEK Education Group included Héctor Vielma, teacher at SEK-El Castillo, who presented a good practice titled ‘Developing multimodal literacy through the soundtrack of film fragments’, and for which he carried out a practical session to discover the different layers of meaning in films as multimodal text: narrative structure, contextual analysis, semiotic analysis and staging.
This work aims to understand the musicalisation of an audiovisual sequence through the analysis of the message transmitted by the music. This teaching project merges two practices originally separated from the subjects of Music and English: Language and Literature of the MYP (Middle Years Programme), and the result of which has been an interdisciplinary learning experience.
Meanwhile, Giuseppe Auricchio, Director of Learning Innovation at SEK Education Group, presented SEK International School Online, which will teach the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme in 100% online mode. The school was launched in this academic year and will be the first school in the world to offer the IB Diploma Programme online in Spanish.
In addition, SEK Education Group hosted a stand in which it showed different spaces and activities of the schools and the UCJC such as the Cervantes Saavedra Campus or the Summer SEK summer camps.
