Keynote Title: “Current gaps in teacher education in Europe”

The instruction of future teachers is of major importance in Europe. However, it is rather common finding that there are still critical matters that need to be covered. Based on the analysis of TED-S, other international evaluations and the personal experience as the Dean of the College of Education of Universidad de Alcalá, this presentations addresses aspects such as mathematics, literacy, foreign language and technnology. The model of improvement needs to address STEAM (and thus, the 21st century skills) as the basis for future teacher education but is also needs neglected aspects such as non-verbal communication, architecture, classroom design, international evaluations and many other aspects.

Keynotes Title: “The evolution of the Education in Portugal and its Budgetary impact”

Abstract: The Education is a Human Right recognized and protected as European Union and Portuguese Constitutional Fundamental Right. More than the juridical and judicial recognizing and protection, the Education evolution has a direct dependance on the National expenses and investment, meaning that, it is important to understand the Budget Impact, along the last decades. Although all the most different controversies, considering the undoubtable relevance to the human and social “construction”, as a permanent but defined political, economic and financial strategy, the global Portuguese development is understandable by this particular study of the Education impact in the State Budget.
