International Class fellow, Jorge Burciaga, brings performance to educators in Chihuahua

406430_473049642729302_1840743773_nInternational Class fellow, Jorge Burciaga recently led a seminar on best practices in Community Education with educators working in very poor communities across the State of Chihuahua, Mexico

The course was sponsored by the National Council for Educational Development and was designed by Jorge to introduce educators to innovative practices in Latin America and the US, including the Institute’s social therapeutic approach to learning and development.

I introduced the concepts of resilience, play and performance as important educational tools, says Jorge.  I’m still learning myself about the power of performance to transform realities.
