Until recently, computers were used only in computer labs. If you were caught using your mobile or tablet in class, you had all the chances to earn a decent punishment. Backpacks were filled with notebooks and textbooks, and their weight increased as you passed the course. And, above all, it was unthinkable to attend a history, language or math class from home.
Today we enter the world of technology and telecommunications with an expert and a great person in this field. he is Juan David Revert OrsCOITERM Manager (Official College of Telecommunication Engineers of the Region of Murcia) and Dr. Polytechnic University of Cartagena, As you’ll be able to verify, it shares exactly my surname, because I’m lucky enough to have it. My brother, He is the middle of the three brothers who make up the Riverte Ors saga, and together FelipeWe make clans. Juanda (as he’s known among those of us who love him) has done almost everything well, and has left the rest to him. I owe a great deal of the world of teaching and social skills to them, so here goes my deepest gratitude. We keep talking to him.
All this has changed in recent years, and has increased with the post-pandemic era. The year 2020 marked a radical change in the functioning of the educational system. These are the keys to the importance of technology in the school. Attending the classroom from anywhere, has probably been one of the most radical changes in the educational system in recent years. The possibility of teaching online classes is not only useful for the times experienced recently, but allows education to be taken to remote locations, making it more accessible and sustainable at the same time. Another advantage of the new technological age in education would be learning from experience; New technologies (such as robotics, programming or additive manufacturing) allow students to apply what they learn theoretically in a practical way. In addition, they enhance creativity, logical reasoning, spatial orientation or coordination. This more practical learning, with dynamic and fun content, results in student motivation.
This makes it an exceptional ally in combating educational abandonment and unhappiness. The paper notes that boys and girls handed over at home — some happier than others — at the end of tenure seem like a thing of the past. Even today, tutoring is no longer the only method of direct contact between teachers and parents. It is now common for the entire educational community to use digital platforms and social networks, through which parents can center or communicate with each other.
Every year educational technology company BlinkLearning releases a report on the use of technology in education. Last year he gave the key to the trends facing the educational community. We give you some points to consider.
, 1 in 3 teachers believes that the main benefits of using technology during a pandemic are creating community between students and teachers, avoiding isolation and bridging distances.
, Teachers are demonstrating to improve connectivity, infrastructure and training. Despite these structural difficulties, the teaching community continues to believe in the transformative potential of technology. At this point it is worth noting that the great things that big technology companies did to keep us connected in times of pandemic; Led by professionals such as telecommunications engineers.
, Globally, 2 out of 3 teachers surveyed believe their profession has been valued after the pandemic. And their motivation levels have been maintained across all countries surveyed, regardless of the situation experienced.
The manager of the Official College of Telecommunication Engineers, Juan David Reverte, believes that: When analyzing new technologies, technologists focus on two basic aspects, on the one hand, the possibilities of technologies for the transmission of information and capabilities; And on the other hand, the social and cultural effects of the introduction of media into the society. Every human being has the ability to learn and new technologies prefer self-learning as a reality that removes frustration and student drop out.
There is a growing demand for technical jobs by companies, but these positions are not being filled. According to a study conducted by VASS and Economic Prediction CenterJob vacancies in the ICT sector in June increased by 7.4% compared to those dates last year.
Professionals in this field are estimated to close annually with over 100,000 appointments, although DigitalES assures that there are currently over 120,000 technical vacancies vacant in Spain. In fact, data from the National Institute of Statistics (INE) indicates that this figure rises to 145,053 jobs offered. All of this data can be softened with a more ad-hoc training proposal tailored to the needs of companies.
another version of “Educate in Troubled Times”Today, we try to show our dear readers the importance of training. I end with a phrase to think about as always:
“Even when you take a break from technology, technology doesn’t take a break from you.” (Douglas Coupland)
