Obsoletos de serie


En una era en la que la formación académica, grados y másteres, no son fórmula magistral garante de bienestar económico, habríamos de apostar por un esquema pedagógico multidisciplinar y transversal que prepare a los jóvenes ante la Cuarta Revolución Industrial.

Data storage and processing is one of the most powerful technologies in the digital economy.

Human beings have developed and adapted to life thanks to light. We cannot see clearly in the dark and our movements are clumsy and fearful when we find ourselves groping around. We have evolved to thrive in safe, predictable, controllable environments.

The CEO of Global Alumni, the first Spanish EdTech company specializing in transforming major global universities, explains to LA RAZÓN the “why” of the new digital system of education: “High school, university, and postgraduate? That’s dead”.

With No Planet, There Is No Future


Many major universities are working on proposals to move toward a responsibility-oriented economic culture.

The topic of the environment and sustainability has just as many supporters as critics. I’m sure this article will not please either camp. I will start by saying that I don’t like either apocalyptic extremists claiming it’s the end of the world, or sceptic naysayers repeating the mantra that nothing is wrong. I never find myself identifying with either one.

When Your Boss Is an Algorithm


In the near future it will be normal for algorithms to carry out organizational tasks.

Artificial intelligence is no longer simply a product of cinema or literature but is rather an incipient reality that is changing the economic environment–and will end up changing much more. The impact of this technology has the potential to transform everything, from what we do to how we do it, and even who does it.

What Must Latin America Do to Avoid Falling Behind in Education?


For Pablo Rivas, CEO and founder of Global Alumni, universities are facing the imminent risk of disappearing if they don’t transform and take on the challenge of integrating into the realm of digital innovation.

According to the Spanish entrepreneur, this is a very serious challenge that must be addressed without delay. Digital innovation clashes with managers’ resistance to change and teachers who remain attached to traditional education–from which Latin America has not yet escaped.

Let’s Dream of a Competitive Country


In Spain today there are 10,000 available jobs in the digital realm.

Among the 10 most promising jobs in Spain according to the report published by Universia in 2018, from data analyst to Big Data expert to specialists in Scrum and Agile methodologies, not a single one appeared on the list that could be easily associated with material taught today in programs in Spanish universities.

Planning for the Future with Today’s Information


Education in Spain, and the rest of the world, has undergone continuous evolution that has accelerated in the last few years.

At the origins of our education system, with the 1857 Moyano Law, a young person who had learned to read, write, and solve basic mathematical equations could face the world he would live in without needing more advanced knowledge.

Startup or Finishup?


The history of the greatest champions of new technologies, such as Zuckerberg, Jobs, or Bezos, entrepreneurs constantly in the public eye with overwhelming personalities and business success, has created part of the surreal myth of the startup founder: that with a brilliant idea and a garage, anyone can create a new market and triumph in the globalized world.

Memorizing the Square Root of Pi?


Education should produce competent and effective professionals who can solve the world’s problems. The assessment model based on memorization does not guarantee that students will acquire the necessary skills for today’s labor market. Unless machines end up performing more functions and manage to carry out tasks better than humans, new professionals must stand out with skills that AI robots don’t have: creativity, critical thinking, and social skills.

Universities Will Extinguish Themselves


It’s an undeniable fact that universities are in crisis. As the digital economy emerges, the educational industry has tried to jump on the bandwagon of innovation, but always with one foot still on the ground. As with any crisis, the tide can turn and a new big opportunity for change may be glimpsed on the near horizon, to build on what is, and not what could have been.

Collaborative Education for a Digital World


It’s been more than 10 years since Japan began the battle against traditional education. A major group of scientists affiliated with the University of Tokyo was the driving force behind the Consortium for Renovating Education of the Future, with the goal of applying the latest discoveries about learning, technology, and education in Japanese classrooms.

Our continuing education programs are training ambitious professionals worldwide to become the business leaders of the 21st century.
