Transcript (en español y in English)

Español

Hola, Hola

Este programa se llama OZ – cuentos mágicos de tierras imaginarias, observaciones de Dr. Z

Este es el Dr. Z, Zachary Brooks, Dr. Z en inglés y uso Zacarías en español.

Este podcast hoy es para los estudiantes, maestros, y administradores de la Secundaria 38 en Heroica, Nogales, Sonora, Mexico.

Su edificio ubica 1,400 metros de la frontera de los Estados Unidos en los cerros de Nogales. El demadre de la linea esta muuuuuuuuy lejos de la escuela y los estudiantes dedicados en la Secundaria 38.

Aquí hay estudiantes y sus maestros que preparanles para ser el futuro de México. Aunque están muuuuuuy lejos de CDMX, tienen más conocimiento de problemas geopoliticas del mundo y por eso están pensando en su futuros como dipomatos de México, como enfermeras, y como ingenieros.

Cualquier circumstancias del momento existen en el momento los estudiantes de la Secundaria 38 buscan y trabajan para sus desarrollando sueños.

En mis ponecias hablé sobre          . Cubrimos tres temas.

PRIMERO … la diferencia entre las definiciones de pasivo y activo

SEGUNDO … la diferencia entre las definiciones de leer y escribir

TERCERO … la diferencia entre la recepcion y la produccion

El concepto es así:

para estar alfabetizado necesitamos no solamete ser pasivo en acciones y consumir los productos, los servicos, y los apps que nos están siendo alimentados

para estar alfabetizado necesitamos ser activo en acciones y producir los productos, los servicos, y los apps para mejorar nuestras vidas, día a día, poco a poco

English

Hello, Hello

This is Dr. Z, Zachary Brooks, and this show is called OZ: magical stories from enchanting places, observations of Dr. Z, that’s me.

On Thursday, June 20th, I was invited to give two talks to the Secundaria 38 (Middle School #38) in Heroica, Nogales, Sonora which is about 1-mile from the United States-Mexico border.

The talks were on 21st literacy and the importance of producing content in order to be literate about what people read, see, and hear in written, visual, and audio formats.

I talked to roughly 100 students ages 11-13 who will see the end of the 21st century and whose grandkids will define literacy based on the choices the students now make.

The takeaways are that the students are passionate about their world and aware consciously or not about the increase in suicides among the world’s youth, the climate crisis given to them by their grand-parents and great-grandparents, and a group who is very aware of lies that permeate.

Their dedicated instructors give them all the support in the world yet there is still much to do.

It was a privilege to see dedicated teachers, students, and administrators in action with our neighbors, Mexico and eat incredible tacos a Patron!
