Carnival de venecia

The meaning of carnival for children

This year’s masked season has been brought forward early in the calendar. Although there are many ways to experience it, carnival is almost always one of the funniest times and festivals around the world.

And also, although many people think that this is not the case, the origin of this celebration is mainly associated with Catholicism and with Eastern Orthodox Christians.

David Calle and technology, or how to be an Unicoos teacher.

Remember who taught you how to write? And to read? And to add or multiply with a little song that you still sing today to remember how much is 9×6?

We all have a face to mind, a person who, with his commitment every day, managed to get us into the mollera one of the best treasures we can have: KNOWLEDGE.

Democracy: How do we explain it to children

There are some difficult topics to explain, even more when it comes to explaining it to children. A few days ago we were celebrating the International Day of Solidarity, one of the main values that humanity must have, and which, together with democracy, make a peaceful life possible.

If we talk about democracy, we are dealing with one of those abstract concepts that we cannot explain to adults or children. Sometimes it’s hard for us to understand.

Photography for children. Improving their creativity. World Photography Day

Thanks to advances in technology, the world of photography is now even closer to everyone’s reach.

Digital photography has made it easier to have simple equipment that we can all handle, and this includes children.

But how do you introduce children to the world of photography? Today, mobile phones (smartphones) bring cameras with some qualities, which not even the SLR cameras of 5 years ago brought. That is why photography is available to everyone, adults and children, with many possibilities. But first, perhaps it is better to start by knowing what photography is.

Learning to live by travelling. The Salati Family: travelling the sea.

It has been told that when we travel, is when we really know each other, when we really look in ourselves.

Perhaps a deeper vision is the one that Miguel de Unamuno had when he affirmed that “We travel not to look for the destiny but to flee from where we leave”. This view is perhaps more similar to the concept of the family we are interviewing today, the Salati family.

Zapp´s Family: 17 years journey. 4 children. Love hasn´t a specific place.

“The World will always be there for you. But you will not always be in the world. Time passes and there is nothing that can be done. The only thing is not to let your life go as well. “

Anyone who has fallen in love at least twice in their lives knows that every story is likely to be different and unique, but today we have changed our way of approaching a partner. But love is a complex force and as such, sometimes it offers film scripts.

This is exactly the case with Herman and Candelaria Zapp who in 2000 decided that their life would be like a movie … a film in which the journey would have been the protagonist. An on-the-road trip aboard a 1928 Graham-Paige.
