Arturo Bravo, “Jesus Teacher”
Bravo highlighted the ability to “dialogue” as a pedagogical key reflected in the life of Jesus. “In order for dialogue to be given, the mind must be emptied in order to acquire something new from the other”, he stressed, and emphasized the use of the parables “which allowed Jesus to open his interlocutors to a new reality.” Success, the theologian explained, is that the parables of Jesus are “rooted in the experience of life,” which allows to quickly connect with their listeners, and where coherence is a key to life. “Jesus teaches and lives what he teaches,” emphasizes Bravo, who emphasized the methodology of interrogation. “The questions occupy a central place in the teaching of Jesus and constitutes an art in the pedagogical action”, he noted.

Philosopher, philologist, teacher and writer, Jose María Bautista, has directed the Program on Emotional Intelligence and Synergies between School and Family of FERE, carried out by more than 4 million students, educators and families. He works to carry the innovation to schools from Be Up Education and he dreams of a classroom in which active methodologies are used and in which movement, passion, creativity and experimentation take the main role.
In his Linkedin profile he writes: “My passion is the subject of ‘passion’. Today the key is not in technology, nor in quality, nor in planning. The great disruptive element is passion. The companies that are born, are born because of passion; those that grow, do it because of passion, and those that die, they do not do it because they do not know how to adapt to their technological environment; they die because before their passion had died. Another passion is writing. I enjoy and I suffer while writing. It is an act of dialogue with myself and with so many people with whom I share a passion”.
His reflection will offer us an approximate image of how today’s youth on the global scene marked by the use of new technologies, interculturalism and new spiritualities.
