General Criteria

The projects enrolled in the Educador Nota 10 Prize are evaluated by the Selection Academy and the Judging Academy, both composed of specialists in their fields of knowledge. Evidence of the following aspects will be sought:

a) Project description:

• The submitted report allows us to understand what was proposed as a study project. It is possible to identify the contents worked, the general or specific objective, how it was carried out and developed with the students.

b) Organizational modality

• It is characterized as a work project, with organized and sequenced activities for the achievement of pre-established objectives, or it is presented as a set of isolated activities, transmitting the idea that the learning of scientific concepts and procedures occurs from experience.

c) Vision of the area

• It allows us to recognize the teaching vision and the treatment given to the information: the methodology is not centered on the transmission of knowledge, with a dogmatic vision of information transfer, having the teacher as the only source of information;

d) Educational intentionality

• The information submitted makes it possible to recognize the educational purpose of the teacher; the presence of the contents or objectives of the area, the purpose of teaching or the expectation of learning.
• Proposed activities that create real learning conditions for the contents presented;
• Developed from actual experiences, initial theories and life conditions that students bring with them;
• Involve students in exploring one subject at a time;
• Encourage students to reflect, represent and document their experiences and share their ideas with others;
• Integrate learning concepts, procedures, attitudes and values, which prepare children to be global citizens in a world where they will meet people of different religions, cultures and nationalities;
• Include situations that allow students to observe, describe, classify, hypothesize, question, argue, interpret data, systematize, and generalize;
• Encourage students to conduct observation practices, exchange of information, research, experimentation, research that helps them to solve problems encountered or presented;
• Teach students to seek information from different sources;
• Organize work by ensuring small scale steps that help students understand and approach the concepts addressed;
• Present experimental situations as possibilities to support the construction of previously explored concepts;
• Teacher has clarity of the route that he wants to follow for the construction of fundamental conceptual knowledge and for the development of scientific competences.
