Teacher training in Esteli.
The Salomón Ibarra center, located in Estelí, is one of the thirty educational centers that has concluded the first cycle of an innovative education project called CHISPA. The initiative consists of creating an innovative and dynamic learning environment in mathematics to replace traditional teaching methods and paradigms in each of the primary schools.
CHISPA serves students from first to third grade of primary school. Each year, over 350 students in Esteli participate in this innovative teaching model. “Participating in the CHISPA project has strengthened teachers’ knowledge and techniques, through time management, problem-based learning, the flipped model, and the use of playful tools such as educational treasure hunts, math cards, math bingo, coding the alphabet, graphic organizers, dominoes, sudoku, among others,” explains Geneli Quiroz, Director of the Salomón Ibarra center.
Teachers learned methodologies such as active and contextual learning, learning through play, and the use of technology as an educational tool for the development of critical mathematical thinking, and problem-solving.
