Knowledge of language, learning, and intercultural coexistence

José Luis Calvo Buezas

The scenario of immigrant education

The phenomenon of immigration, as all social phenomena, is very complex. It is even more complex when it is put in relation to education. In order to approach such a precise subject, as is the knowledge of a language and its functions, one has to keep in mind the general requirements of this process that serve as a suitable context.

  • Schematically refer to the fundamental parameters that must be considered.
  • Coexistence in school among the diverse is much easier and effective if one begins at an early age because the plasticity of the subjects is much greater.
  • There is a need to begin thinking of the second generation, so that the immediacy of the present problems does not prevent us from looking ahead and confronting the immediate future.
  • The active and passive scholastic absenteeism should be avoided at all costs. It is difficult to find a job that is easy-going, stable, adequate, and worthy without having a minimum formation.
  • The centers must implement plans to welcome new students as much as possible because schooling a child, especially if it is an immigrant, is much more complex then just sitting her or him at a desk.

Schooling centers must count who is a foreigner by specifically documenting records, reflecting the social surroundings to which each center serves. The Educative Project must establish objectives of mestization; the Curricular Project must gather cultural elements of foreigners; and the Internal Regulation must establish norms of intercultural coexistence and categorize the xenophobia and the racial insults to eradicate them. The center’s organization must attend to diversity a much as possible; that is not only a fact, but a norm as well, with flexible groupings, compensating course and social guarantee, modalities of professional initiation, job formation, and professional workshops.

There has to be a sufficient number of professors to take care of schooling necessities with the corresponding curricular adaptations for the students present in the classrooms. Specific and complementary formation in this field is demanded by many of the students as very necessary.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
What is lattice structure?
s. Reply
of graphene you mean?
or in general
in general
Graphene has a hexagonal structure
