PRODUCTIVITY AND DEVELOPMENT On these days many people in the town are changing their way of producing something that are creating more money for the community in some other that are creating more earnings for the town. And if we start analyzing the Jalpatagua, Jalapa. This litter town is increasing very fast, they are creating a lot of things and at the same time they are exporting all of this stuff, and creating more travels in Guatemala, this is good point for the economy that nowadays Guatemala is having. The travelers are sharing all the things that Guatemala has and creating a new method to produce different food or well crafts that are modifying some things of the others cultures. The societies are creating a little space for Guatemala, and with all of this the population of the country is becoming in a better condition. “Guatemala can improve…”


Our society has lot of good things, but also we need to improve so many things. Quality of life in La Democracia, Escuintla is still with lower percent. We have to remember that quality of life is not equal to standard of living. We as teachers have to motivate our children to improve and take care of the environment. Make many activities where children can make good use of their time. Children have to be sure about their thoughts. They have to develop their own opinion, because no one can decide or even think the same thing at you. There are your ideas and you must tell it. Teachers are the most responsible to develop this kind of things. Palencia has people who always have negative opinion about the environmental, so we have to change because otherwise the town is not going to forward. I can said that Palencia doesn´t have educated citizenry. Why? Because they cannot be free. They work a lot and don´t pay attention to the people that are around us. Is important remaining our students that family is the most important in our society and doesn´t matter if they have to work together but share time with their family.


TECHNOLOGY IN YOUR HANDS You know that the technology have been improving a lot in many different ways. It can be improving to make easier our lives, to make that you can be more accessible to the things, person an also a place, to find interesting information that may be you are not going to find in a old book. The books are an excellent resource, of course they are! But the problem is that they aren’t actualize the information that they have, and you has a teacher has to actualize you because the education is in constantly changing.


As I have already said the technology gives us the accessibility to be in a place and you can apply this tool in your classes. How? Have you ever have to teach a place or a another country, and you want to go there with your students, so in this way they can be more interested to learn the place? It will be awesome, but you couldn’t, there are many factors which prevent this, like the students' security, money, transport and others factors. Whatever, there is an activity that you can use. Nowadays the internet allows us to travel or to know places without we make a large trip; you can go online in the internet to the place that you are teaching and you can meet it from your class. For example one day in the class of Art's history a teacher was teaching the history of an old church and all her students started to say that they want to go there if they can make an excursion, but they couldn’t, so teacher went online and looked for this church and all her students were very amazed. The internet is very useful!


Do you know for what other thing the internet can help you? Well, if you are reading this magazine is because you are a teacher and a teacher has a very busy life, don’t you? And sometimes you want to be involved in activities to improve your knowledge, but the time doesn’t let you to go and learn other things. For example you want to learn a third language or another language but can’t go to a place and receive classes to learn the language so what you can do is… GO ONLINE, there you will find course, like the famous courses of "openenglish.com". This a course that people who can’t learn English receiving courses in a place they go online and there they take his courses from the comfort of their house. You will not only going to find course to learn other language, also you can learn online courses about how to play an instrument, if you have difficulty with the cooking you would find cooking classes, or sewing classes, classes about how you can makeup yourself, how to do origami. Wow! You are going to find a lot of things that you can learn, only go only and take advantage of the technology

I hope get ideas about how you can travel without leave the class and how you can learn more things from the comfort of your house. Talk to you in my other article
