Spanish to English translations [PRO] Social Sciences - Education / Pedagogy / School performance and academic outcomes
Spanish term or phrase:andamiaje
SPAIN. From an article comparing leadership styles of head teachers in two different schools in Spain. I'm afraid "scaffolding" just doesn't cut the cake for me.
"Ello significa no sólo la participación en la escuela, sino también en los procesos de aprendizaje con el uso de metodologías activas, grupos interactivos, ***andamiaj***… y todas estas herramientas contribuyen a la larga a la mejora curricular y de los aprendizajes."
It's almost 3 decades since I did my Dip. TEFLA but I see the penchant for buzzword vocabulary hasn't dwindled. "Scaffolding" it is then… :-)
Thanks to everyone for the input. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Well, when I searched for it I got "No results found - Try to broaden your search criteria, or ask a KudoZ question." And FYI, I know that it means "scaffolding", I simply wasn't aware that it had been adopted by the educational community as a buzzword in that particular context. If my translation had been about construction, I wouldn't have had to research it at all.
