to education 3rd Primary Education 1. PHASE DESCRIPTION: In this paper we compare four differ ent schools located in Irun and San Sebastian Oiartzun. Specifically we will foc us on the use of new technologies at each site. As we have seen in different cen ters using the new technologies is low propose a project to promote the use of t hem. 2. PHASE DIAGNOSIS: JAKINTZA IKASTOLA • Description and identification of c enter It ). iz le is a public, a ikastola therefore the language model is the D (all in Euskera It's in Donostia, specifically in the Old Quarter, in the street Paseo de Her No. 109. The ikastola Jakintza is divided into two schools one located a litt lower than the other.

The building below the students are from infant to second grade and go from 3rd to the building above. The building below is much larger than the one above and therefore have a greater number of classrooms and more equipment, the building u p, honesty is very small and has the "right" • Information about the computer room In total are 22 computers in the school above and below the 35-40 or so. In the computer class: 12 Class teachers: 3 Gallery Class 4 printers support four scann ers at school below 9 computer class is located on the top floor and the compute rs are located in a circle in the middle of the room is a table great to do some kind of work, the whiteboard is in a hole in the wall between the computers. DIGITAL BLACKBOARD • Training of teachers / responsible There is no charge: But most have a good level and defended quite well. • Progra ms that use / server / age Software: Klik Word Matesblaster Photo shop Age:

have two servers (one in the school above and one below) Windows XP

From age 3, in class have a computer and use it with the teacher, to see stories and more. One hour a week will also go to the computer lab in small groups to v iew images and games on the digital display • Does Web page? What's in it? They have no website. But one of his teachers has made a blog where he presents the Ikastola and being the teacher of Physical Education, is basically about you r subject. Also, If they make an excursion or so photos that draw put them in yo ur computer. In the school down on the whiteboard have tucked a number of progra ms they use and give far more use because it takes longer, do not give up even t oo much use, although you can get from the top to the programs that are on the b oard below ("Intranet"). COLEGIO SAN PATRICIO • Description and identification o f center St. Patrick's School is a cooperative Español coeducational A formal model with a differentiated educational project. It is funded with funds from the Basque Go vernment, so it is a center concluded. The mission of the cooperative is to purs ue excellence in the training of people, knowledge, skills and attitudes through

the continued use of the English language, knowledge of their environment and l anguages of the same and the participation of families, teachers and students. I ntended as a referral center in quality, which aims, using a high level educational technology, maintaining good academic results and a reference model for pre-university secondary education. The school is located in Donostia-San Sebastian, Lanberri Kalea 25, on the slope s of Mt. Due to the topography of the area is difficult and costly to expand ope n spaces (playgrounds) and turning them into flat surface. The orientation of th e school is targeting the area north of the school entrance, facing South primar y school, southwest of Child and Secondary classes. With regard to school infras tructure, consists of a main building with 7 floors (at -3, -2 level, level -1, level 0, level 1, level 2 and level 3) which is the bulk of the facilities and t xapela pediment-covered. Kindergarten and 1 cycle of primary education are at th e level -1 and -2 of the right and left wing have 12 classes. The facilities ava ilable are: psychomotor class (ballet room), bathrooms, equipment room, an offic e of speech / psychologists, a parents' reception room, multipurpose room (with media), playground in the campaign green, playground and input. Apart from the s pecific equipment of each cycle, the center also has other common: lift, patios, €bathrooms, 3 executive offices, office for the manager of extracurricular activ ities, secretarial, photocopying room, locker room, judo room, dining room, libr ary, 2 rooms computer hall, staff room, three teacher work rooms, office coordination, office for Extracurricular Euskera and the other for the School of Music, 2 classes of 27 m2 for various activities, extracurricular activities room, and others. We d o not have a gym but its construction is planned in the future, the pediment bei ng covered - txapela, where gymnastics is taught. Teaching is given in the model bilingual (English-Castilian) model A, which guarantees the basic knowledge of Euskera and the possibility of acquiring the minimum essential communicative fou ndations of a fourth language (French or German). • Information on the computer room The computer equipment consists of: 160 computers: July maccintosh PCs and 153 servers 10 an interactive whiteboard Scanner March 17 printers, one col or A3 2 Cameras As for the computer characteristics are as follows: 9 P4 1.6 Ghz computer. 256 Mb RAM, Hard Drive 40 GB are the slowest. 20 PC P4 2.2 Ghz. 1024 Mb RAM, 80 G B hard drive 20 PC P4 2.8 Ghz. 1024 Mb RAM, 80 GB hard drive 121 P4 3.0 Ghz computer. 102 4 Mb RAM, 160 GB HDD Computers have a hard disk each, physically, but with the w indows partitions are made, the servers have two hard drives. The life of the co mputers is 4 years. Accomplished that date renewed. Printers and servers every f ive years as photocopiers. The computers are distributed in: two computer labs (53 computers). E.S.O. 6 computers in 3rd. children (2 years classroom) a com puter. The remaining computers are for teachers and administration. The teache rs have one computer for every 2 except for the coordinators who do not share yo ur computer. • Training of teachers / responsible The person in charge of new technologies at school is Auritz Beunza. It is a com puter engineer. He's in charge of a properly functioning computer equipment and everything related to new technologies. He tells me that being a private school, cooperative, budgets are tight and when making an investment need the approval of parents. So they have to walk very consideration for the time spend the money . It has nothing to do with a public school, they spend the money they have allo cated without having to explain to parents.

As for teacher training, is responsible for training Euritze. Most have basic co mputer skills. Euritze Even before entering, the person responsible for informat ion technology at the center was not entitled. He had made several computer cour ses and had a wide knowledge because of their keen interest and dedication. Euri tze uses the last week through July 2 to July 6, "which is when teachers have co mpleted the last assessment, for recycling in Windows XP, Intranet. As to incide nts, says Euritze me are minimal-year dedicated approximately 10 hours. Last yea r they gave training to teachers in the management of photocopiers, cameras and printers. Usually no effect, and I also said that staff prefers not to teach thi ngs as basic as what position should place the cables on the CPU because it know s from experience that if you explain certain things, human beings are very curi ous and start sauce because you think you control, and not true. • Programs that use / server / age The programs used are: 5th and 6th grade using the "Paint-in art class. The te acher is Sonia and graduated in Fine Arts. 1st, 2nd and 3rd of E.S.O. Office use, and Accueyee - typing program. The teac her is Saimon, not computer but it is well founded on these issues. 4 of the E.S.O. working with Excel and BDM (SQL). The teacher is Miguel Angel, has a degree in Philosophy. It has a great knowledge of computers. 2 º Bachil ler. Technical Branch. Using AutoCAD. Optional subject. The software used by stu dents is as follows: Office Paint (paint program) Accueyee (typing) AUTO CAD (computer aided design software by computer) PhotoShop photos) FreeJ (d esign software) to program magazines. Subject of the press. Macintosh are used , can also be used as PCs of the 10 servers, there is one that is used only for backup.€The backup is done daily. All copies are stored on a server. Each server records and copies sent to the server, a copy of it. Copies start at 3 o'clock in the morning until 8 o'clock in the morning when there is no movement in schoo l. In total 70 GB of backup. Once a week ago on a hard copy and portable securit y is taken away from the school to prevent data from any disaster that may occur . The first contact children have with computers is in 3rd child. They have a co mputer in class. Using the program "Paint" for works of art. They build structur es to house and coloring. (Computer-based editing and retouching There are a group of teachers, three teachers, with Euritze, which are currently assessing how to introduce new technologies in Infant and Primary as there are parents who have complained that their children through 5th grade not have acces s to computers - except third child. For Euritze, all classes and computers but also have the necessary budget, we must also train teachers who are reluctant to any change and more to technology. Teacher training is vital as they must be tr ained to teach computer because it would fail the introduction of new technologi es in the classroom. The goal is for the academic year 2007-2008 the school and Primary children have access to computers. With regard to information technology , the interactive whiteboard is one of the latest developments of the school. It is a user-friendly tool. The difficulty is knowing you organize lessons introdu cing the board. Once again we see the reluctance of teachers to change their tea ching method based as it presents another way to work in class. It is used prima rily for educational support classes. There is a special software for special ed ucation is called It is a standard program and eac h teacher makes learning units depending on your needs. They are available onlin e in several languages. It is very useful and with the interactive whiteboard ca n do a good job. • Do you have website? What's in it? The website available is designed by a team of school and ha

ve not hired any outside company for maintenance. They are in charge of everything concerning the web. It has a priva te area to access the intranet. Any "actor" of the college: faculty, staff, stud ents, parents can access it. It is accessed with a username and a password. Pare nts and students have access to a restricted area. In the future, another issue they have in mind is to provide on-line courses. I also said that the Basque Gov ernment is giving grants. The problem I have is that your Internet connection is very slow, bad. It is because they have satellite access. Being located on the mountain school signals do not reach them. They depend on central Ondarreta. Hav e you talked with telephone and solve your problem would have to take a chute to the school and is not viable. So the only option left is to access the Internet via satellite, in addition to being the most expensive option. For now, the del ivery of online courses is in the air. COLLEGE OF PUBLIC DUMBOA IRÚN • Descripti on and identification of center The CEP Dumboa LHI-Santa Elena is located in the city of Irun. It is the result of the merger of two primary schools (the CP and CP Dumboa Santa Elena). The bui lding for the former Santa Elena CP today is for compulsory secondary education. In the center at street Ambassador Manuel Aznar, number one, are taught both ki ndergarten and primary education.

Most students of this center comes from middle socioeconomic families, tending to low levels in many cases. As for the school' s identity, it is secular, in the case and a type of public institution. The lan guage patterns that currently supply the heart are the B and D both in the case of early childhood education and primary education. The vast majority of student s realize their educational center in the model B, but there is a class D model in each course. The D model classrooms usually consist of a small number of stud ents. The center also has the following dependencies: • • • • • • • • • • • • • Classroom Library Elevator Swing Champs Sports Lounge Concierge Fitness Bathroom s Outdoor Patio Craft Workshops Tutorials Secretariat • • • • • • • • Changing rooms with showers and room service teachers hall of Management Board A udiovisual Room Lab Computer Room

Information about the computer room The number of servers of this school is twofold: a) 30 G hard drive, is the main driver profiles. b) The work of all profiles. Reports. Intranet: a kind of netw ork, but in the middle. The number of computers at our school: (37) 14 in the computer room 3 Secretariat Directorate-3 in a notebook library + 4 in tut orials on the first floor 4 in tutorials on the second floor 3 in special ed ucation classroom in a classroom 1 April sixth in the English classroom a laptop in the music room Printers: a primary network in the secretariat 1 Multifunction fax, scanner, color pho tocopies 2 Laser in black and white normal printing August 4 new color pri nters Epson Scanner: 2 the computer room in tutoring a first-floor 1 in tu toring on the second floor in the library 1 1 Reception • Teacher training The ICT manager at school there is a teacher who is currently released from some subjects, that is, taught some classes to students but spends much of his worki ng hours at the computer lab taking care of it. Normally at this school primary school students have a weekly scheduled time to attend it, often students tend t o attend this weekly session with your tutor / a. The teacher in charge of this classroom often help the tutor in most cases, also if any problems always happen to him. This teacher has theoretical and practical training on software used by students. The teacher in charge is Just Saenz. It is noted that young teachers make greater use of computers, have a good level at the time of going to the programs and work with them, more adult teachers who are close to retirement have the biggest prob lem in using them. • Age Students begin to use the computer in the first grade of primary education, ie, 6-7 years, go to the computer room and so on during the primary education stage. They go to class once a week, are students in the first cycle, the second or th ird, it is more, students in sixth though they have a scheduled time each week, do not go to it. • Programs that use Microsoft Word Microsoft Excel A special program to work the math. A spe cial program to work writing-spelling. Students do not perform work outside the classroom computer, ie not sent work to do there, that make it in high school. M ore than half of students have computers at home and Internet, the form most oft en used is google, most of them handle the mail and use the Messenger to communi cate. In this school, parents do not communicate via the Internet, do not use an ything. • Do you have website? What's in it? This school has available a Web page that contains all the necessary information about the center. Linguistic, extracurricular activities,€information about the center equipment, facilities etc. COLLEGE OF PUBLIC ELIZALDE OIARTZUN • Descrip tion and identification of center Elizalde and has ominates side are • public school is located in a linguistic model which is the town. The public school the secondary and the other the town of Oiartzun. It is a public school the D as the Euskera is the language that d Elizalde school is divided into two by one being the Primary and Infant.

Information about the computer room Number of servers: The school's hard drive has 30 gigabytes. This school has t wo servers, one is primary and the other is the secondary. The first server is t he main driver of the profiles, is the console that has the virus, that is using Panda. And is that which contains the work of all profiles. When jobs are not w ithin the first server, because there is no room, use a second server, in which the work is saved profiles, reports of students, teachers, etc and is one that h as intranet, is similar to a network but in the middle. Number of computers at school has a total of 50 computers, of which six are portable. Computers in cla ssrooms are from five years in the classrooms of 2-4 years there. The comput er room in the halls of the teachers, one is 2, in another three and the other f our. The secretariat goal.

Everyone uses it if you have any questions or problems. Most students have computers at home and half of them online. Students who have no computer at home have the possibility to use the center during school hours. Parents of students of this center tend to get on the website, except where they fall on it to amend its section. In thi s center there are two students who need special assistance to strengthen their education and use special programs. In this center there is no touch screen but if there are only two digital. • Teacher training For four years, teachers are being trained in computer science to know unfold th emselves in the computer, not be afraid. Training is practical and theoretical b ut gives greater importance to the practice. The training is given to programs t hat can work with students and that helps. The Web page is often helpful. Teache rs also lets them know that their information has to be kept in a Penrose (penci l), are getting used to having no problems after losing data on your computer. T hey are required to have certain minimum skills that are not afraid the computer . The level of teaching for five years is a good level if compared with the leve l five years ago, we can say is good or sufficient. Most people know to walk in the computer without any help. • Age In the classroom after five years and older have a computer. The five years and the other courses devote one session a week. Then out of school programming are used for projects that have a relationship with other schools and so know where they live. The five years and the first year of primary school have the project Plush, loc children write messages to other centers and exchanged stuffed animals, often have things on the toy, like this, you eat, you have done today, often share with schools like Tolosa, Langaitz, Herrera etc. The fourthgrade, have the project Gipuzkoan Zehar in this project, the students are put in contact with college students Billabona. Through the messages people have thing s about each one, in this case on Oiartzun and Billabona. The fifth-grade have a project created by the County, this project is called Kosmo - Odyssey, here wor k different topics related to the planets. From fourth grade typically carried f

orward ten-minute sessions of typing, but it also can work taking the program ho me.€But from next year will begin the third year onwards. • Programs that use To work typing: Master Tipin Mecawin To work your language: Creative writer Microsoft Word to work the math (Euskera): Matematika Students and teachers have email and Web often use the computer pro grams. • Does the center website? What's in it? Center Web page is: on this page find information about the ce nter, photographs of activities undertaken during the course and the projects ca rried out by the school. 3. PROGRAMMING PHASE: • Comparison of the centers In ikastola Jakintza, in our view, devotes little time to use new technologies, only go one hour a week, computer class and only used for work other subjects (e g mathematics ) and do not teach them to use the computer or the various program s (when they are smaller they give some kind over how to use the computer, some programs, and for example the Internet directly to walk in them say they must se ek information in Google and there appears to them all) What we think is right, is that since the three years the children have contact with the computer. It is also appropriate to give increasing importance to new technologies, and this is seen in the center because they're reforming the whole computer equipment as we ll as incorporating new teaching methods with the help of these as could be the use of slate touch. At school, St. Patrick, as in the previous, we spend very li ttle time to the use of ICT, also an hour, and the age when they start to go the computer room is later, from 5th grade and that first contact will only be m ade using the Paint, which is very low, so do not learn too much, only serves to familiarize them with the mouse and computer. At school Elizalde, also started very late, with five years and use it for projects like the "teddy project, whic h is to maintain two schools related to each other via e-mail, and five years of first year of the first cycle of primary education have a stuffed animal they s end him to another school and vice versa, including questions about how to do is their own stuffed animals are also used to play and read stories. The time they give is also very low, one hour a week. From 4 th grade begin with typing, but devotes only 10 minutes but you can also take home the program to advance a litt le more. At school Dumboa, starting from primary and one session a week for an h our or less (50 minutes), which has drawn our attention enough is that in 6th gr ade were deleted hour a week and do nothing computer. The 6th grade, but only on e class (and there are 3) have a computer in class, but do not give nearly use, only use it on certain occasions, for example where a people search. The compute r and general classrooms in the four centers are fairly accurate and complete be cause they use the most innovative and updated programs, computers are going ren ewed every four or five years, now available in most flat-screen computers. Also, incorporating new technologies such as digital whiteboard, have laptops, digital cameras, so we c onsider that receive money specifically for the use of these technologies. As we have seen teachers not properly qualified, and that in some schools not even have a computer teacher or someone who is involved in learning to use t hese new technologies and is dedicated to exploring how to teach, but watching y our comfort doing the same thing does not always complicated, requiring much tim e and explains that most of us do not have it. In conclusion, the four centers t hat we believe we have analyzed the most complete computer equipment is St. Patr ick's school, but do not give too much use (we think with the amount of resource s that are not harvested). Most use centers give the information session are ika stola Jakintza, starting from 3 years to use it (although time is tight), next t o school Elizalde, who use it to do other projects and ... 4. PROPOSALS FOR IMPR OVEMENT More hours more computers in classrooms More equipment (video came

ras, digital whiteboards, projectors, etc..) projects in some schools have to improve, one of these improvements is the addition of On-line courses in English for students of the third cycle of primary education. • Our proposal: Each student will make a blog about an animal, you must choose a pet, close to i ts environment. In the Blog will introduce interesting webpages on the animal ch osen, must record and upload video as well and write stories about each animal a nd any other related to it as well. Then the teacher will introduce activities r elevant to the selected webpages. We as an example, we have made a blog about th e turtles. The blog address is: _______________________________Resumiendo, we ha ve several web addresses that we found interesting, plus an activity to be under taken by each of them and have made a video, interviewing one of us telling the story of his turtles. To end the activity we do in class a mural together. In th is mural each must put the picture of your pet and beside the main characteristi cs or description or whatever you prefer. We shall conclude by reflecting on the importance of pets in our lives.
