IE University believes that an excellent means to reinforce education is to apply technology in the learning process in such a way that it can be closely aligned with its students’ training.  

The students at IE University use these channels, such as Twitter or Facebook, to share with their internet followers their internship experiences and to show what day to day life is like, where they are working, about the country and customs, as well as to work on their classes online. 

Bachelor students at IE University are currently carrying out their internship period in companies and institutions around the world. Patricia Llopis, Coral Pereda, Jaime Pagés, Paola Gilmartín and Tessa Heimbach are five students that, through Twitter or Flicker, bring their personal experiences to dozens of followers. Among them are professors who follow practically in real time not only their work but the emotions and thoughts they have during their experiences beyond campus. 

Jaime Pagés, a student in the Bachelor of Architecture program, is doing his internship with the prestigious AEDES Berlin studio. He said that with his Twitter account he “intended to reflect my day to day work in AEDES/ANCEB and the dynamics of the conferences and classes during the online period. I wanted to offer a realistic view of the IE University student, how it is, how it feels, what we do and what occupies our time.” His 140 character messages tell us everything “from traveling by bicycle through Berlin to the welcome cocktails and different guests at ANCB.” 

“I had never used Twitter until I began my internship in Berlin. I have enjoyed being able to show the day to day life of an Architecture student at IE University and that there isn´t a fixed structure, but that every day is different and has its own challenges.”  

University and technology must be unified. The great challenge of the education of the 21st century is to adapt to the new technological possibilities that allow us to use online training, while at the same time maintaining interaction with students in order to supervise their work and internships. This allows for students, once having finished their degree, to have gained ample academic and professional experience.

Los alumnos de IE University comparten sus prácticas en las redes sociales 

IE University, consciente de los hábitos de consumo de Internet de sus alumnos, cree que una buena manera de reforzar su enseñanza es aplicar estas tecnologías en el proceso de aprendizaje, de tal forma que las redes sociales sean un excelente aliado en la formación de los estudiantes. 

Los alumnos de IE University utilizan canales como Twitter o Facebook para compartir con sus seguidores sus prácticas profesionales y también para mostrar su quehacer diario, el paisaje o las costumbres de los lugares donde residen, además de trabajar en sus clases online

Actualmente, los alumnos de grado de IE University realizan su periodo de prácticas en empresas e instituciones repartidas por todo el mundo. Patricia Llopis, Coral Pereda, Jaime Pagés, Paola Gilmartín y Tessa Heimbach son cinco de estos alumnos que, a través de su cuenta de Twitter o Flickr, acercan su experiencia a decenas de followers, entre los que figuran sus profesores, que siguen casi a tiempo real no sólo su trabajo sino también las emociones y sensaciones que despierta su experiencia más allá del campus. 

Jaime Pagés, alumno del Bachelor in Architecture, realiza sus prácticas en el prestigioso estudio AEDES Berlín. Afirma que en su cuenta de Twitter “intento reflejar el día a día de mi trabajo en AEDES/ANCB y la dinámica de las conferencias y clases del periodo online; quiero  ofrecer una visión más real del alumno de IE University: cómo está, qué siente, qué hace o qué le preocupa”. En sus mensajes de 140 caracteres refleja “desde los viajes en bicicleta por Berlín hasta los cócteles de bienvenida a diferentes invitados de ANCB”.

“Nunca había usado Twitter hasta antes de empezar mis prácticas en Berlín y me ha encantado poder reflejar el día a día de un alumno de Arquitectura de IE University y mostrar que no hay una estructura fija, cada día es diferente y más challenging”, indica Pagés. 

Universidad y tecnología deben estar unidos, y el gran reto de la educación del siglo XXI es adaptarse a las nuevas posibilidades tecnológicas pues permite continuar con la formación online y además interactuar con los alumnos para supervisar su trabajo de prácticas. Esto da lugar a que éstos, una vez hayan terminado sus estudios de grado, acumulen una amplia experiencia académica y profesional.

Political and social media / Política y redes sociales

Written on April 28, 2011 by Roberto Arribas in Communication

Public Policy and Political Communication Professor Magdalena Wojcieszak was quoted today in the newspaper Expansión in the article “Zapatero se cuela en el “club de presidentes” de Youtube” on the use of social media as a tool by politicians.

Magdalena Wojcieszak says that “tools such as Twitter, Facebook or blogs show politicians as if they were closer to the people. But these tools also make a politician to become more authentic and innovative and a better communicator.” “Only 50% of the people in Spain has access to the Internet and it is impossible to expect similar results as those of Barack Obama, who uses these tools much more. Besides, not all Spanish users are into politics, thus reducing the percentage of people interested in this type of communication.”

El periódico Expansión publica hoy un artículo titulado “Zapatero se cuela en el ‘club de presidentes’ de YouTube” que incluye declaraciones de la profesora de Opinión Pública y Comunicación Política en IE University Magdalena Wojcieszak sobre el uso de las redes sociales por parte de los políticos.

En este artículo,  Wojcieszak asegura que “plataformas como Twitter, Facebook o los blogs muestran una imagen más abierta y accesible de los candidatos. Pero también obligan a los políticos a ser más auténticos, más innovadores y, sobre todo, mejores comunicadores”. Además, añade que “sólo un 50% de los españoles tiene acceso a Internet y es imposible esperar resultados similares a los de Barack Obama, donde la penetración de la Red es mucho más importante. Además, no todos los internautas nacionales están interesados en los asuntos políticos, lo que reduce aún más el porcentaje de la gente afectada por este tipo de comunicación”.

     Who is Pedro Cifuentes?  

Pedro Cifuentes (Madrid, 1973) is a Spanish journalist and editor who teaches Multimedia Journalism and Digital Literacy at IE University. After joining the politics section in the newspaper El País in 2000, he worked for five years as editor of Encarta Online, and also acted as deputy editorial manager of Microsoft’s digital encyclopaedia in its Spanish and Latin American version. Regular contributor for several Spanish and Latin American media, he has managed content projects for both sides of the Atlantic and also translated into Spanish several books by Malcolm Gladwell, Anthony Giddens or Isaiah Berlin. He lives between Spain and Argentina and is a Communication Manager in AEMS-Ríos con Vida, an association awarded with the National Environmental Prize in Spain. 

     What is Offside9 about? 

Offside9 is a bilingual site about football which was launched just before the 2010 South Africa’s World Cup. It offers witty articles about the game and its characters, as well as insights on the industry, live commentary on all matches via Twitter, especially chosen videos and predictions of results based on our proprietary statistical algorithm. On top of that, we try to be funny, except when debating with our community of users!  

     Who are the people running the website? 

The site was created and is maintained by Daniel Altman, North American economist and journalist who has worked for The New York Times, and myself. Dan keeps a closer eye on the English version, and I do the same with the Spanish one, but the best content is always portrayed in both languages. The layout was designed by an Argentinian graphic designer who lives in Mendoza. 

     What does a journalist do during the World Cup? 

The work a journalist does during the World Cup depends very much on the type of media he is working for. There are some journalists who attend all games and who live with the players and there are some others who never leave the press room and always stay with the same colleagues. Our case is particular (I had to cancel my trip because I fractured my fibula while I was actually playing football), but basically it is all about watching as many games as possible, read all the press that you can and get in touch with people from all over the world. The different touch of an article or a feature cannot be improvised: it comes from many years of curiosity, reading and direct experience.

Discipline is absolutely fundamental: for instance, you must finish your piece of work at a certain time in the day so they are read in different countries. 

     What other projects do you have in mind? 

Besides working as a journalist, editor and translator, I have been recently involved in the creation of a network of blogs and I am also thinking to write a book on an issue that it is still a secret. Besides, it is quite possible that I will soon join a Latin-American business school faculty. 

     How do you live the World Cup in Argentina? 

In terms of passion and the number of conversations on the World Cup, Argentina is quite probably the country of football. Streets are literally empty when the national team is playing and some people even take the day off. Argentine patriotism increases exponentially during this type of events. People really know about local and international football, basically because most football stars play overseas. Also, criticism is ruthless. I do not even dare going out after Spain lost against Switzerland… 

     Any favourite national team to lift the trophy? 

As you have personally asked me to say it, I would say that Brazil and Spain will get to the final, but I would like to know first who is passing the first round…
