The project offers training to researchers from São João da Boa Vista for the elaboration of academic works
The Laletec extension project (Laboratory for Technical and Scientific Literacy) emerged in 2015 from a demand for training researchers to prepare academic works in the city of São João da Boa Vista and region.
The objective of Laletec is to offer training in three areas: information competence: academic literacy, search strategies, sources of information and ABNT standardization; use of technological tools in the methodology, for data collection, analysis and treatment; academic writing strategies for the macro and microstructure of the text and use of argumentative techniques for high impact publication and scientific dissemination.
Coordinated by professors Rosana Ferrareto and Gustavo Pietro and librarian Maria Carolina Gonçalves, the project served, from April 2015 to July 2018, approximately one thousand researchers from the region of São João da Boa Vista, through training activities, among which are lectures, short courses, workshops, seminars, round tables, scheduled appointments, two distance learning courses via the Moodle platform and one Massive Open Online Course (Mooc).
From August 2018 to July 2019, Laletec's extension activities were suspended, but the project did not stop. Professor Rosana went to the United States to participate in a training at Case Western Reserve University, in Cleveland, supervised by Professor Mark Turner, who develops research in an area similar to that developed by Laletec. Meanwhile, the nine students involved in the project (all are volunteers) are working here in Brazil, in an integrated way with the Red Hen team at CWRU (USA). The tasks include the development of the project and the production of content and technological and pedagogical applications for the reopening of Laletec, which should happen still in 2019, on Rosana's return to Brazil.
Analyzing the benefit that a project like Laletec brings to the students involved, Rosana points out that, for a researcher in training, participating in an international research project, especially if this project integrates the teaching-research-extension axes, as is the case, one of the biggest gains is the contact with cultural and linguistic diversity. She believes that this contact has important consequences for the development of a globalized posture, which will guarantee the training of professionals as citizens of the world, based on values such as respect for multiculturalism, innovation, autonomy, protagonism, interaction with the community, exchange and exchange of knowledge and experience.
How to send a video?
Students interested in contributing to the program can submit their own videos lasting a maximum of one and a half minutes, which must be recorded with a camcorder or cell phone camera. When using the cell phone, recording should be done with the device horizontally, using the rear or front camera (selfie mode). Videos recorded with vertical framing cannot be considered.
The people who will present the project must be very close to the camera, so that they are audible. Look for more reserved places, without the interference of external sounds (wind, event sound, ambient noise). Light the scene well, record in favor of the light. Do not use digital zoom, as it affects the quality of the video.
After recording the video, upload the raw material (without the insertion of subtitles, soundtrack and overlapping images) and files (photos or other information) related to the project in the cloud and send the link with the project information, full name , course and campus for email .
To upload the video, you can choose the storage of your preference. We suggest, as a suggestion, SendSpace (https://www.sendspace.com), Dropbox (https://www.dropbox.com/pt_BR/) and Google Drive (https://drive.google.com) .
Remember that the material must be sent without editing.
In case of doubt, contact the Communication Department by e-mail .
