Educating citizens of the future

Anna Fores y Alfredo Hernando - Friday, 27 November at 17.00

Anna Fores Alfredo Hernando

How can we educate future (digital) citizens to use technology in a responsible, critical, and secure manner? Technology has shown itself to be a valuable tool, particularly in recent times, and it should be used positively, responsibly and creatively.

What is more, although it influences them in the future, it is part of the present, because our students are being educated in a society in the throes of a digital transformation. It is therefore essential for educators (teachers, parents) to be aware of this reality and to be able to steer young people to become intelligent users of this technology. There is no question that their lives - and our own - will be connected.

Students use technology every day. They do this to communicate, to entertain and to have fun, to express their thoughts, to learn and to be able to use it in their future careers. That is why we cannot ignore this very important part of the present and the future.

The first of these, gaming and technology and how they have become powerful in an environment where the digital world is becoming an essential facet of our everyday lives. Our second combo will be education and gaming where we will discuss the educational potential of gaming as a tool and resource. Our third combo will introduce the concept of ludo digital literacy that is driving a social transformation where play is already part of our lives and opens the door to inclusion.

From scoring to real evaluation

Chema Lázaro - Thursday, 5 November at 17.00

Chema Lázrao

We have long focused on knowledge acquisition and how concepts and knowledge acquired are evaluated and scored. But... Have we ever stopped to think about other ways of measuring learning? That is, what students have really learned (what stays in their long-term memory) throughout the learning experience.

To measure learning we must use real evaluation, where feedback is a powerful tool to legitimise meaningful learning. A real evaluation, which mixes scores with the training and diagnostics.

We have invaluable tools to do this: technology and a whole set of digital resources, which will help us obtain large amounts of data. These metrics and their interpretation will enable us to make better decisions for our students' learning, putting them at the centre of the learning process.

Excitement in digital learning

Jesús Guillén - Wednesday, 28 October at 17:00h

Jesús Guillén

Traditionally, formal education has focused on the cognitive development of students, while neglecting the emotional aspects. However, recent research in the field of neuroscience shows that emotions are essential in reasoning and decision-making processes, that they are the basis of curiosity and attention, and that ultimately, they are decisive in learning processes.

On the other hand, technology is neither the salvation nor the perdition of education; it should simply be considered a pedagogical tool that can and should be very useful if used appropriately and in line with the identified learning objectives. ICTs, increasingly present in the current situation, have come to school to stay and must be managed as resources for learning.

How to link emotional issues with digital resources? This webinar will discuss numerous strategies for making distance learning more approachable, more exciting and more real.
