The Internet shortens distances. It's a phrase made , but very true. And, at times like the COVID-19 quarantine , it comes to a unique reality.
Juan Denis is a professor of Philosophy in four high schools and a tertiary institute in the city of Santa Fe . Like all teachers in Santa Fe , at this time, the Ministry of Education was asked to digitize their classes and share them online to their students, setting reading deadlines, practical work exams. So far, the reality of all educational establishments in the province, which were invited to take advantage of technology so that coronavirus does not take away so much time from labor and learning
But Juan wanted to go further. His teaching vocation and internet fondness made him become the teacher youtuber .
In this way, Juan developed, through social networks, the project “Philosophy in Minutes” to transmit educational content during the quarantine . Professor Juan says that this system is heavily influenced by the “Netflix model”. The main difference with face-to-face classes is that students can attend with cuts or at the times that are most comfortable. Perhaps this is one of the biggest challenges of these “new online schools ” today. Distances, which are real in the face of not being able to go to the establishment, seem to disappear thanks to the internet. But the character of order and obligation that represents the classroom situation is lost.
What is also a clear disadvantage is the lack of interaction. No student can raise a doubt or give an opinion during the class, something so central to the philosophy aimed at young people.
Anyway, much is gained with initiatives such as those of Professor John. The quarantine invites creativity to play, more than ever. And, if that creativity turns to eliminating distances and awakening the interest of the boys , it is more than welcome.
Visit Juan Denis's channel and you will be able to learn, too, a little philosophy.
