CPR Region de Murcia is an organization depending on the regional government of Murcia and its educational authorities devoted to the further training of in service teachers in primary, secondary and specialized schools.
CPR Región de Murcia provides training for as many as 800 primary and high schools, a number that also includes specialized centres for the teaching of languages, music and adult education, among other sectors. The variety of courses offered covers practically every aspect in teacher training, from voice education and the creation of healthy habits, to the specialized courses for any of the subjects in the Spanish curriculum (Foreign Languages, Art, History, Mathematics, etc…) or to the introduction of ICT in our schools, an area to which much of our attention has been given in recent years.
CPR Region de Murcia counts with a number of advisors specialized in the organization of ICT training in the key competences outlined in the DigComp framework as well as in training for multilingualism in several languages, mainly English, French and German. One of the areas we have been working lately in an intensive manner is the implementation of digital teaching and learning in the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device Model) where students use their tablets to develop the curriculum with digital resources provided by the publishing houses and or created by the teachers themselves.
Another area we cater for the schools is their participation in European programmes developing workshops where we enable them to fill in their applications for KA1 and KA2 as well as generic activities to disseminate the programme.
See our Digital Schools of Europe page.
Below you will see links to the website’s of the schools and a brief summary of each school outlining the school environment, technology usage, issues and successes. These are the schools affiliated with Centro De Profesores y Recursos Región De Murcia for the DSoE project.
San Agustín school is a grant- aided school which offers the following types of education: Nursery, Infant school ,Primary school ,Secondary Education ESO, and Pre University. It is in the locality of Fuente Álamo, with its own council town.
The population is native with an incrementing immigration, a lower middle cultural level, but with an ascending progression thanks to the rising number of young people with secondary and higher education. The economic activity of Fuente Álamo has progressively moved from the primary sector (agriculture and small farms) to the tertiary sector (services, stores, commerce…) and industrial sector and technology ( creation of one of the biggest technological parks in Spain “ Technological park of Fuente Álamo”),
San Agustín school puts the main emphasis on imparting IT-Skills. The European dimension is also one of the main objectives in our school, trying to emphasise the intercultural knowledge and knowledge of foreign languages. In fact, the school is bilingual since five years.
The headmaster of San Agustín makes a systematic effort that the teachers of our school live with these demands and give this enthusiasm to the pupils.
Besides from the regular classes we also have classes for children with special needs, such as A.D.H.D, emotional difficulties and learning difficulties in general to help these children to get the basic objectives of this stage.We do have approximately 20% immigrants integrated in different classes at school. We think that working with a European dimension would show tolerance towards “strangers”.
