Open for everyone

The emergence of ubiquitous technologies and access to 21st century occupations will generate new challenges that we’re not even aware of. In order to adapt to this scenario, we must replicate its conditions in the classroom environment to prepare students for professions that have not yet been invented.


How to acquire problem-solving competences in technology-rich changing environments? How to foster flexible formats, emotional skills, collaboration and active responsible citizenship? How to create more action-based learning models focused on solving real-life problems?


Does this mean creating spaces and encounters where students are exposed to cross-cutting applications and practical use, which take them far beyond the traditional “knowledge” about the various isolated subjects?
