Currently, technology is impelling processes of digitalization and transformation, forcing higher education institutions to adapt their means, contents and objectives to the reality of the digital world.
Technology has also begun to change the roles of teachers and learners also is a powerful tool that can support and transform education in many ways, from making it easier for teachers to create instructional materials to enabling new ways for people to learn and work together.
According to the United Nations, a massive 94% of the world´s student population has been affected by COVID-19, with low to middle-income countries hardest hit. Many, including educators, are using technology to adapt to our new reality. One solution is EdTech which is changing education in Latin America.
Latin America has strong points to take advantage of technology and close the gap that separates it from the most developed countries.
Technology has the power to transform education at a low cost and COVID-19 has highlighted the need for EdTech solutions to close the digital gap. We are excited to see what other digital tools emerge from this crisis to support education in Latin America.
To ensure the learning experience is also engaging and meaningful, connectivity improvements and digital literacy must play more prominent roles in EdTech’s success in Latin America.
Delivering affordable educational resources is just one part of the challenge, there’s never been a better time for start-ups and companies to focus on innovative solutions that help students, teachers and families access educational resources regardless of their location.
