About the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

The Presence Program is an initiative promoted by the Vivir Agradecidos Foundation and it was developed during 2019-2020 by an interdisciplinary team of experts in education, cognitive neurosciences, minfulness and positive psychology. The program has been successfully implemented in 800 teachers and directors in Argentina since 2020 with very good ratings from attendees.

How does your innovation work in practice?

Presence is an online teacher training that promotes knowledge, skills, attitudes and provides emotional resources to attendees for their individual and collective transformation, to manage stress and be able to respond to the complexities of their practice in complex contexts.
Presence is based on the contributions of cognitive neurosciences that enlighten the new ways of approaching teacher burnout and includes scientific advances in its contents and innovative practices that generate new habits.
Presence includes a rigorous evaluative model that allows for ex-ante, process, ex-post and impact evidence.
The modality is online through a specific platform in synchronous and asynchronous classes, in English and Spanish. In turn, in the last instance of training, the attendees participate in an innovation process applying collective intelligence on the Aletea platform, working in Community Response Circles.

How has it been spreading?

Presence began its implementation in 800 teachers from 42 institutions from initial to tertiary level in Argentina. We are currently initiating efforts for its implementation in other countries globally. Our goal is to reach the teaching teams of 10,000 public and / or private management educational institutions in the next 2-3 years.
Presence contemplates a sustainability strategy cooperating with governments and institutions to incorporate these new and necessary contents and practices in the initial training of teachers. In this way, Presence simultaneously promotes initial and continuous training in order to impact an increasing number of teachers and institutions in this innovative proposal for well-being, collaborative work and new ways of innovation in teacher training education.

Presence Matrix
This presence matrix functions as the guideline that connects the experiences and knowledge that make up the program. The matrix consists of the unfolding of conscious attention that arises from stopping our everyday rush. When we stop, we can look at our internal experience, our body and sensations, our emotions and our thoughts and, from there together with the intention that arises from looking, we can go on and assume attitudes that connect ourselves with the consciousness of the Interser (interdependence). In this way, the impact we have as individuals and communities within the environment in which we are immersed is evident.
