A Social E-Learning Experience in the Raval Neighbourhood: Human Perceptions and Community Development

Ana Amat, Isabel Alvarez


The aim of this study is based on the analysis of a socio-educational programme, from a relational and real-life perspective, enriched by John Dewey's Theory concerning experiences of aesthetic quality. The e-learning is an omnia point located in the Raval neighbourhood in Barcelona, Spain. The methodology is qualitative and interpretative, and concentrates on the study of one particular case, with in-depth interviews with key contributors. The results obtained underline the importance of the study as regards the promotion, creation and consolidation of human relationships, networking and, consequently, the personal development of the participants. Finally, the conclusions presented are related to the community experiences of aesthetic quality, particularly insofar as they impinge on interpersonal relationships, their influence on learning, each association's connections with the community and networking as a means of communication among all the associations in the neighbourhood, which makes it possible to organise socio-cultural events in which all the residents in the neighbourhood are given a voice, thus promoting the development of community.
