FAAPI Conference Speaker Scholarship Winner

APRIR member Viviana Valenti was awarded the  APRIR Speaker Scholarship: 2017 FAAPI Conference . 

She travelled to Posadas, where she presented her paper 

"Optimizing Navigation in Authenticated Hyperlinked Texts to Guarantee Knowledge Construction".

This is what she had to say about the experience.

The fact that I travelled to Posadas to participate at the FAAPI Conference simply confirms that I am a FAAPI addict. The reason for this addiction is not difficult to understand. When I attended the first event, too many years ago by now, I found myself immersed in a world tinted by passion towards the profession I embrace - teaching. This new FAAPI meeting once more confirmed that it is a social and professional experience worthwhile living from the very first warm welcome to the final greeting when the new host association is announced. Needless to say, I enjoyed the comradeship of colleagues from all over the country, I became enthusiastic about the variety and number of presentations and workshops that left the impression that one would like to be in more than one room at the same time and, why not confess, that I loved spending the breaks flicking through new books at the stands. But, above all, I was pleased with the quality of the presenters (and I would especially like to highlight the performance of our native speakers who gave proof of their professionalism) who succeeded in posing the challenge to revise our concepts, to become critical of our own teaching practices and to implement changes that may revitalize our classrooms. I do thank APRIR for having made my trip to Posadas possible and I would like to invite you, teachers, to dare bring your views or experiences to the next FAAPI as sharing is the key to professional growth.
