Katerine Cardenas - Colombia

Katerine teaches ICT in a primary school in Medellin. She focuses on team work to generate interaction, communication, mutual respect and shared knowledge building. Lessons include the creation of audio stories, digital stories, digital cartoons, digital newspapers, letter writing, an online TV channel, spontaneous writing, and technologically mediated cultural exchanges – connecting her students with classes in Chile, Malaysia, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, the USA, Mexico and Ecuador.

Attendance has improved, and literacy and communication skills have developed considerably compared to students not taking part in her projects. Her students stood out strongly in the Colombian SABER tests and in the ‘Knowledge Olympics’.

Katerine has trained her colleagues on integrating technology into the classroom and enabling students to develop 21st century skills. She has also been sharing her approach with other teachers internationally.
