On 28 May, the historic medical university of Paris Cité opened its doors to the IARTEM organisation (International Association for Research on Textbooks and Educational Media) on the occasion of the celebration of the 17th edition of its international conference, focused on the theme of climate and social change and its presence in textbooks. 

The participation of Stellae researchers was remarkable, starting with the presence of Ana R. Guimeráns in the doctoral day, a meeting between the doctoral students participating in the conference to present and discuss the status of their respective theses. In addition, each room was moderated by an expert in the research lines of the participants, which further enriched the exchange of ideas and the strengthening of international ties. 


The day of the 29th was dedicated, among other activities, to plenary conferences and round tables on climate change and educational resources. In this context, Jesús Rodríguez Rodríguez presented, together with Gilherme Romanelli and Alessandra Anichini, the book ‘Disciplinary and Trans-Disciplinary Knowledge and Skills for an Uncertain Future: Are the educational media up to the task?’, which brings together the articles presented at the last edition of the congress held in Florence, Italy. 


The second day of the congress was mainly devoted to the presentation of papers, where once again there was a large representation from the University of Santiago de Compostela and the Stellae group. 

Firstly, the paper by Silvia López Gómez and Ana R. Guimeráns was presented together with colleagues Ana Parada Gañete and Mª Isabel Vidal Esteve. The authors presented ‘An analytical journey on the school textbook in Spain’, one of their research works focused on the comparative analysis of the presence of climate issues as well as the presentation of diversity in natural science textbooks used by students in the 80s, 90s and 2000s in the last year of primary education. 


Finally, on the closing day of the meeting, the presentation of the Seundari@ Digit@l project (PID2022-13736608-100), led by Ana R. Guimeráns, Jesús Rodríguez Rodríguez Rodríguez and Diana Marín Suelves (Universitat de València) and Ana Sanabria (Universidad de La Laguna), took place. The main objective was to present this new project focused on Compulsory Secondary Education in Spain and on the use of technologies by adolescents in schools and at home. Therefore, they addressed issues related to the research trajectory on the subject, the project's objectives, the studies to be carried out and the preliminary results derived from the first year of work carried out by more than 50 researchers in the Spanish context.
