Cátedra UNESCO: Educación Digital Escalable para Todos

La Cátedra UNESCO participa en el «University Global Coalition 2020 Virtual Gathering»

El próximo 21 de septiembre de 2020, Carlos Delgado Kloos y Carlos Alario Hoyos, director y subdirector  de la Cátedra UNESCO respectivamente, participarán en el «University Global Coalition 2020 Virtual Gathering» con la presentación titulada: «Surfing the Waves of Educational Transformation in the 21st Century«. La presentación tendrá lugar entre las 10:45 y las 11:30 (Eastern Time).


The new century has brought three different phases of educational technology that have impacted the quality and reach of technology-enhanced education. Starting with asynchronous education technology, such as OpenCourseware and the Khan Academy (2000s), transitioning to a plesiochronous timing model as in MOOCs (2010s), and today, culminating in a wave of synchronous education with numerous cloud-based tools available to increase interaction in online classes (video-conferencing tools, shared whiteboards, shared documents, polling…). This wave, accelerated by the coronavirus pandemic, is expected to have a profound impact on the whole decade. Join us as we discuss how these waves have removed several barriers in education: space, time, and access, contributing to the improvement of quality in education and better training citizens for the skills required by the labor market.
