Hola. Los invito a conocer un proyecto que inicia para usar Moodle como herramienta de apoyo en la enseñanza de economía, finanzas y negocios. Mi estrategia es usar un blog, Google Docs, Moodle y twitter, para complementar diversas herramientas digitales orientadas a la enseñanza. Asimismo el 2 de diciembre recibiré varios videos sobre economía, de los alumnos que cursan conmigo, donde se reflejará la construcción de conocimiento propio de los alumnos.

Para conocer mi trabajo pueden dar los siguientes pasos: 1. Acceder a mi blog ( y bajar las instrucciones de acceso al curso. 2. Siguiendo las instrucciones bajadas, darse de alta en Moodle (usuario y clave propios, sugiero un usuario con siglas CEG + nombre/nick para identificarlos). 3 Acceder a la página de mi curso (con usuario y clave propios) y dar la clave adicional para acceder a mi curso que es "ABCDE". 4. Realizar las actividades del curso. 5. Opinar en los foros del curso en Moodle. 6. Observar el curso y generar sugerencias para mi. 7. Seguirme en twitter (@ProfeZavaleta) para conocer sobre nuestras actividades.


Muchas gracias por su tiempo y respuesta a esta invitación. 

Seguiré construyendo una red de profesores universitarios, que están interesados en compartir ideas de educación con apoyo de las TIC (no importa el nivel educativo, creo que la experiencia compartida es lo mejor para avanzar más rápido en sociedades rezagadas como las latinoamericanas).


Profesor Gustavo Zavaleta Hurtado 

PD: deseo contactar con profesores de negocios y economía de otras universidades latinoamericanas.

Hi Philomena:  I ´d like to accept your invitation for a cultural exchange with your students. I have a couple of new courses and my students are interested in joining it.

Please let me know to get started.

Hi Philomena : I ´d love to have  an exchange again.  But unfortunately our undergraduate students have been on strike for more than four months   on demand for a free public education.  We don´t know if they are going to have a second semester. The university administrators are trying to finish the first semester now.  I´ll get in touch with you if something new comes up. Thank you for your proposal.  Whatever happens I will let you know.

Take care,
