The Education Observatory was implemented in 2011 as a means of support for the activities of the Foundation´s Education Area. The three major lines of action of the Observatory in this area are:
1. The creation of points of exchange where experts can come together in dialogue, debate and thought to define and conduct the trends in the educational field and their strategic lines. Along these lines, the Observatory worked with the Education Area to organise the International Conference on Social, Emotional and Creative Education, which was held in Madrid in October and boasted a turnout of more than 400 teachers.
2. The in-depth research and exploration of many of the issues that arise as a result of the above exchange and the Foundation´s knowledge and experience in each of these areas. It was precisely in this manner that an ambitious study has been launched on El Prestigio de la Profesión Docente ("The Prestige of the Teaching Profession"), which includes the participation of renowned experts and aims to analyse the main challenges at the national level. The study will be concluded in 2012. Also held during 2011 was the International Analysis of Emotional and Social Education.
3. La distribution of the main results of the Foundation´s projects.
