Lets support USL series: about 400 students from Fernando Salomon (middle school) chanting Let us support USL. USL Go Global.

What they are chanting in sync here is:

Let us support USL. USL Go Global.
Lets support USL to the UN.
Lets support USL to UNESCO.

The translated transcript of Part 1 of Elsa Cohoy:

(English)

Nice to meet you. I am Elsa Cochoy, the Director of the colegio evangélico  integral del mesías (evangelical comprehensive school of the messiah) with the slogan of excellent education we have for God, .. and we have had the opportunity to work with Dongchan Lee. He was extra-ordinary, and I say this because I observed the students, they expressed enthusiasm to participate with him, Number 1.  Number 2,..  the demonstration of learning (with USL) they learn 30, 40, or even some said up to 50 times faster (with USL) than with the methodology that we use. The other is that somehow the difference between how they can better optimize the time and perhaps scored (with USL) and maybe not get the job in a shorter time than the time that we invest (with the normal eduation).

It is a quick way as to how they work. And how many are convinced and try and learn and believe that they (can) learn (with USL). The other is that somehow the Difference between how they can better optimize the time and perhaps scored. and maybe not get the job in a shorter time than the time that we invest. It is a quick way of how they work, and how many (students) are convinced and try and learn and believe that if they (can) learn.

 

So he brought us a very large, long term project, USL, a very good driver[motivator]. I think they(students) need to detect [realize], first, to use mathematics not as content, but as something meaningful for learning that prepares them for life. And when he[Dongchan] talks about … how mathematics can have, strengthen … self-sustain their lives as students, and the life of the institution, and perhaps (even) life of an entire community.

So we are very satisfied and we are fully prepared to be able to continue making an alliance with this pilot project … to strengthen and move forward so that, for us, is a great satisfaction.  And if we ask institutions such as UNITED NATIONS, UNESCO and Ministry of Education, I really try to support and really strengthen an alternative [USL] that perhaps we have been looking for a long time and dare this alliance will be good that we make and that we support and to demonstrate to students that to study is to live, which is for life itself.

Thank you very much .

 

Part 2

English-translated trascript:

I would like to address to the United Nations, UNESCO, MOE as organizations have had to ensure … ( have had to watch – we are part of the ministry of education) … ensure education, make this partnership with USL . You therefore have to remember : the historical-cultural teaching model we as local demand , as education authorities , that there is a divorce between the historical moment that society is living and education that we teach .

Already said a great thinker, “When the school teaches , society learns . ” And through USL , students are prepared for life itself . That is, mathematics for life. Then we must emphasize that alliance have with this pilot project to strengthen the work that has been done , especially that students learn for life , learn to be happy and learn to contribute to society ; characteristic of this pilot project , USL , demonstrated in the lives of students . Of course there is a lot to go but it’s a good partnership that will achieve this goal.

Thanks
