Essence

The essence is the set of features necessary and essential that characterizes someone or something. In elParlante we believe in the transformative dialogic communication and education. Working on the design, implementation and evaluation of communicative actions involving dialogue, understanding and reasoned agreement, as opposed to the mongoloid actions seeking the achievement of results, often against the will of the other.

We work in what some theorists claim is Alternative Communication for Social Change. An inherent function to human nature, a participatory process by which two or more human beings exchange and share experiences, knowledge and feelings, even from a distance and through artificial means essential function. We also believe in education, the one that Gabriel García Márquez (1994) talked about: "An Education, from the cradle to the grave, steady and thoughtful, inspiring us to a new way of thinking and encourage us to discover who we are in a society that wants more for itself." We also believe in lifelong learning, which focuses on the individual and on the process. It is a system that emphasizes the relationships among teachers, students and their socio-cultural context, an education for freedom. It is then, in the edu-communicative model where we think we can build ways of dialogue between communities involved in our projects. So, we want to propose strategies, forms, methods and measures to develop a project to improve intersections, meetings and dialogue between people. In order to achieve this, we must use technology in the cyberspace, in the neighborhoods and/or the classroom. Always emphasizing the content and emotions rather than technological advances. Although it is the only population we work with, we have a special interest in young people.

We and our proposals are close to the new sensitivities of digital natives who have grown up in the global village. Our effort aims to privilege their voices, recognize their multiple identities, share their needs, based on their interests and contributions. The idea is that education is a humanist and liberating process in which learners are revealing the world and are committed to its transformation. (Freire, 1975) Thanks for the company. We, of course, hope to count on you, with more and more parlantes to assist us in building our own voice ... and to echo it.

WE BELIEVE IN A SYSTEM THAT EMPHASIZES THE RELATIONSHIPS AMONG EDUCATORS, STUDENTS AND THEIR SOCIO-CULTURAL CONTEXT, AN EDUCATION FOR FREEDOM.
