Alhelí de la Aurora Arrona Altamirano(Mexico/Spain)
Taking into account the landscape of modern society in the pursuit of education, entails certain challenges to cover diversity of students in school environment, as well as all social practices involved in it.
Sharing a socio-constructive perspective, my PhD project is focused on everyday practice in primary school, teacher-pupils interactions and interactive discursive sequences.
I am a mature student that has come to research later in life but I have so much yet to learn.

My motivations for participating in the ISCAR SU 2011 are related to my interests in the cultural-historical psychology, that is the theoretical and epistemological background of my research projects.
I’m Francesca Balestra, 2nd year PhD student in Psychology at the University of Parma, Italy. My research project is focused on “negotiating selves and identities in psychotherapeutic conversations” from a dialogical and constructionist point of view.

Recently, I became a PhD student. In this PhD study I focus on (ex) psychiatric patients and the way they (can) use their knowledge of and experiences with their mental illness and the care they receive(d) to support (the recovery of) other psychiatric patients.
Being trained in the areas of child development and education I have always realized the formative role of culture in the learning and development of children.

Rosalie Nicole Metze(Netherlands)
My study-background entails a Bachelors in Social Work and a Masters in Sociology.
My learning background as a student of languages consisted in traditional teacher-centered instruction, text-book mediated learning, and exam-based assessment of grammar and writing competence, confined in technology-free classroom environments, which formed the basic structure of learning in my country at the time.
My participation in work of second International ISCAR University allows me continue to work on my research at a higher level and contributed to a more thorough analysis of its contents.
What do i expect from the participation? First at all I am expecting to the exciting intellectual atmosphere offered by ISCAR seminars and representations that could give an impulse for my scientific work.
I expect I will get inspiration, new questions and ideas for my further scientific activity.
I think, that cultural-historic psychology is very actual way of science. I work in school, and I see, that when you work with children, you must be flexible. You need huge quantity of psychology instruments.
I would like to take part at the Summer School, because for me it will be a great possibility to learn something new and improve my experience in the Cultural-Historical and Activity Theory.
It would be very interesting and valuable to learn more current information about the mechanisms of internalization of moral norms during our work in ISCAR SU 2011.
I noticed that I could understand Vygotsky’s ideas much better in the process of social interaction.
The goal of our research is to study the peculiarities of inner conflicts in adolescence and to ground conditions that could be efficient for their overcoming at this particular age.
My acquaintance with the school of cultural-historical psychology occurred during studying in Moscow State University of Psychology and Education at the Department of Educational Psychology.
I hope SU will be such wonderful and I will gain a good experience of communication. It will be useful for my study as I will have a possible to discuss my work with the best professors.
