Preparing young people for the future of work.

There is a global context in which large amounts of the youth population are unemployed or in the informal labor market. In contrast to this situation, sectors of the technology industry indicate year after year that vacancies remain unfilled due to the lack of qualified people with digital skills to perform the required jobs. This framework strongly challenges education and its curricula.

 

It is essential to redefine technology as a cultural form and not as mere electronic devices. In this sense, it is not only important to master and manage devices but also to acquire and develop skills and competencies related to digital culture.

Tec.La is a training program for Latin American teachers focused on delivering the training and resources necessary for them to teach computational thinking as an approach to resolving complex challenges.

 

The program shares theoretical and practical content around pattern recognition processes, algorithm creation, decomposition, and 21st-century skills like empathy, resilience, adaptability, and creativity.

What’s next?

As Artificial Intelligence takes center stage as a disruptive technology, we are evolving this format to include AI Thinking as a cross-cutting framework as it brings a new perspective on problem-solving, digital citizenship, and career readiness.

 

The new version of Tec.La will prepare educators in traditional and non-traditional learning environments with updated tools and resources to prepare themselves and learners to be attentive, engaged, and empowered as the landscape of work and learning changes.

“The Trust for the Americas wants to thank Eidos for strengthening the capabilities of our local partners. Through in-person training, they have contributed to the development of critical and creative thinking of dozens of teachers with the objective of promoting computational thinking. With an agile and flexible team, they are now a regional benchmark for the development of skills demanded by the 21st century."
