emotion tour conferences

III cycle of conferences on emotional education in spain

The Emotion Tour is a free and exclusive series of conferences for professionals in the educational world, which aims to bring emotional education to all parts of the country. The first Emocionatour (formerly Emotour) had a surprising success, almost 1,000 teachers enrolled in the 7 conferences that were held around Catalonia. In the second year, almost 2,000 education professionals have attended, and the prediction for 2020 is even better, adding Madrid, Sevilla, Zaragoza and Palma to the route.

this year’s subject: emotions. for a more humane education.

  • #EducarAdolescentesDeHoy. Emotional proposals to become truly influential. Eva Bach and Gemma Ventura. How to educate teenagers today so they are more wonderful, rather than puzzling? How to see them with kinder eyes? How do we communicate to reach out to their hearts? What essential changes do we need to make to open ourselves to new ways of understanding life, relationships, education, love, sexuality, happiness, technologies … and many other issues that disrupt our approach and separate us? Can we weave bonds that aid us in becoming truly influential?
  • Stories and vulnerability in the classroom. Jordi Amenós. This lecture is about the importance of dignifying vulnerability, both that of students and teachers in the classroom. And we will do it by speaking of the wisdom contained in myths and ancient tales. During the lecture we will reflect on loneliness, the addiction to screens and always being in a rush, factors that all abound in our world today.
  • “Crecer con valentia”. Cristina Gutiérrez Lestó Fear has increased dramatically in children and young people at the same time as courage has decreased, the latter being one of the most valuable attitudes in the history of mankind. What is the cause? Why is courage important? Are children educated in strength and courage today? What are the consequences of this? We include real reflections from children and young people that will help us understand how overprotection destroys courage, and the tricks that teachers and educators can use to make our students brave.
  • The neuroscience of emotions: why do we believe they are so important in education? David Bueno. We will learn to know what excites us. Or rather, when something excites us we learn it much more efficiently… Why does this happen? What do emotions represent for the brain? In the context of education, are all emotions equivalent? We will discuss why the way we relate to students and how we transmit knowledge to them is decisive for how they will perceive themselves and their environment, and consequently for the relationships they will establish in the future. It is the cornerstone of education.
  • Evidences, myths and beliefs in education. Arantxa Ribot. It would be difficult to imagine a medical professional making decisions without considering the results of medical research. Everything that is carried out in the field of health is based on evidence, since this helps to decide which treatment is more appropriate and therefore more likely to be successful. Generally, in the educational field we are not used to basing our decisions on research. The objective of the presentation is to reflect on the need to base educational decisions on evidence, show the tools to consult the latest research and delve into the results obtained in relation to the use of technologies in education.
  • Communicating well to educate better. Javier Cebreiros. There are different types of communication between people, and this lecture focuses on the importance of training two skills: observation and good personal communication. We will focus on the importance and influence of emotions on how we communicate and provide practical resources to face our daily conversations with our closest personal and professional environment in a more satisfactory way.
