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.
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.
