Enhancing creativity and innovation in education.

Creativity and innovation in education not only is a need to deliver proper knowledge, but also is a basic component todays day and age for students to be tuned up with the needs of the society and the stimulation they are bombarded from outside the classroom.

 The reality is different as the paradigm of education is constantly in a vertiginous change.

 Just imagine how education will be having Artificial Intelligence or just using contact lens containing chips delivering more information per second than a teacher. Perhaps we should start thinking what the future for an instructor or teacher is. Are they going to exist?

Usually students used to confront “problem solving situations” while now their reality is to confront every day challenges imposed by avalanches of technological advancements. The most common thing is the out of the box thing.

The only steady element is now the change. Creativity and innovation are the basic structures that we need to elicit in order to enhance the process of education or create a new system.

Higher, Technical and Vocational Education Across Borders.

Las estadísticas demuestran que debemos expandir el rango y la contextualización de la instrucción que se ofrece a los estudiantes mayores de 16 años (educación de adultos), para que puedan adquirir las habilidades necesarias para la transición al siglo XXI en el entrenamiento y desarrollo de lugares de trabajo, utilizando las nuevas y rápidamente cambiantes tecnologías a las que han de enfrentarse.

Los programas de la educación continua y técnica están actualmente dirigidos a una amplia contextualización encaminada a los trabajos disponibles y a las habilidades académicas y técnicas necesarias. Esto se puede lograr trabajando en conjunto tanto en el área académica como en el área técnica con planes conjuntos de instrucción.  De esta manera se ayuda a los estudiantes a desarrollar las habilidades del lenguaje técnico con un vocabulario adecuado a los trabajos disponibles en la actualidad.

Las escuelas técnicas medias son muy necesarias para instruir a este tipo de estudiantes al refinar tanto sus habilidades de empleo como su pensamiento crítico, para que sea aplicable a la resolución de los problemas relacionados con su área de trabajo real.

The Use of Massive Data in our Technological Society: Myths and New Challenges.

“The Use of Massive Data in our Technological Society: Myths and New Challenges”.

This conference begins with an introduction to the phenomenon of massive data in today’s digital society, emphasizing the differences between data, information and knowledge, the concept of ‘data lake’ and its complexity and the results that can be expected after analyzing a set of data: prediction, forecasting, prescription… and their different nuances. A naive approach to the ‘Big Data’ phenomenon is also outlined. Secondly, it is approached the intelligent use of this valuable raw material, starting with the role of the ‘Data Scientist’ and showing a map of the techniques of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning aimed at this purpose, together with a description of the suitability of these methods to the different types of analysis situations, with special emphasis on those that have to do with teaching and education in all their diversity. Finally, the new challenges of this use of massive data are presented, especially with regard to the search and access to information and the intelligent analysis of texts for various purposes. The talk will be presented in a critical way, especially with respect to the myths that are taking root in society in general and in education in particular, in terms of the use and exploitation of the available data.

Modern Technologies in Education: Challenges and Opportunities

Abstract
The article is devoted to the problem of using new technologies in education. The purpose of the article is to identify the main risks and benefits of using new technologies in education, as well as methods for minimizing such risks. The methodology of the study is based on quantitative and qualitative methods. For the study, questionnaires were developed for students and teachers and send by email and were posted in professional groups in social networks. The main hypotheses of the study were the following:
– the development of modern technologies contributes to an improvement in the quality of education and its accessibility;
– the development of new technologies creates more challenges than opportunities in the development of education;
– the development of technology contributes to the development of education, but it is necessary to develop a culture of using technology properly.
As a result of the study, the third hypothesis was confirmed. The main ways to increase benefits and reduce risks from the use of new technologies in education are to reduce bureaucratic pressure on teachers and give them more freedom in developing curricula and courses, as well as fostering a culture of rightly using new technologies among students.
