Teachers were divided into three groups to ensure coronavirus prevention measures

More than 70 full-time, supportive and time teachers from URACCAN Las Minas at their Siuna campus began the training process to strengthen their skills in the use of technology and evaluation tools, as released by teacher Sorayda Herrera Siles, academic secretary of this campus.

This training corresponds to the second semester of the 2020 academic year, which will begin on July 27, and whose objective is to continue preparing in the modality that has been implemented since the first semester as a strategy against the COVID-19 pandemic, said teacher Herrera Siles.

"The first four days will be focused on the issue of virtuality, that is, knowing the use of our virtual platform, which is what will not allow to run the mode by meeting, and in the last days the issue of planning and evaluation will be being worked on," said teacher Herrera.

The academic secretary of Las Minas said that URACCAN's teaching staff on the Siuna campus have been divided into three groups to ensure COVID-19's institutional prevention measures and protocol; these groups will be from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 meridian; another group from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.; and another that will be from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., with the teachers schedules.

Yasser Martínez, a teacher at URACCAN Las Minas, said that virtual space training helps him have direct access to students virtually, using tools that allow sharing of everything that was done in person.

Teacher Jacoba Rodríguez, for her part, said that these processes are important because they allow teachers to be able to update the the use of the virtual platform, acquire basic tools to deal with the situation that is lived with the pandemic.

"These spaces allow us to reach students and maintain contact and relationships in virtual environments, but without setting aside quality, so we update ourselves and that ensures that we maintain quality," Rodriguez said.

URACCAN is the intercultural community institution that, in its pedagogical model, developed the updating processes with all its teaching staff on the campus and its three university extensions, which allow each educator to acquire new tools for the teaching-learning processes.
