Conchi Fernández

I am Conchi Fernández Munín, professor of Technology at the Department of Education of the Xunta de Galicia, although I am currently developing my work from a teacher training consultancy linked to STEM / STEAM projects and the transformation of educational spaces. I am a creator of digital content, virtual courses and I have experience in ICT coordination and work teams as well as introducing the use of maker spaces in educational centers.

I manage well with technology and I love to tinker, “fix”, try, mess up and take advantage of everything that falls into my hand, be it a machine, robot or digital tool.

Lately I have been very attracted to 3D printing and the introduction of programming and robotics in educational environments from an early age.

My motto is to learn anywhere and at any time and incidentally take advantage of it to do a digital “evangelization” and promote the maker culture.


Julia Taboada Martínez

Julia Taboada has a degree in Physics from the University of Santiago de Compostela. Her professional activity has always been linked to the world of innovation and technological inclusion in the educational context. She has been a teacher of Technology in public secondary education for more than 10 years. In 2011 she changed teaching for advice and became part of the educational innovation team at the Department of Education of the Xunta de Galicia. From here she promoted methodological actions whose objective was to seek a more practical approach to learning in the classroom. Her concern to connect the school with the society that the students will face, led her to focus on STEM (a methodology that combines the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics), where some of the most demanded professions in the world are probably found. future. Thus, since 2018 she is a STEM advisor in the Department and one of the people responsible in Galicia for the programs that are proposed to educational centers for the promotion of innovation and promotion of future STEM vocations.
