Entel and the UAI come together to train educators for underage students in a highly digitized world

Entel signed an alliance with the Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez to teach a new version of the Educando en la Era Digital program. It’s about a free course, in online format, aimed at teachers, educators and caregiversfrom the regions of Valparaíso, O’Higgins, Maule, Ñuble, Biobío and Metropolitana, who face the challenge of educating children and adolescents in a highly digitized world.

The hyperconnectivity and acceleration of the digital transformation that the pandemic confronted us with maintains a leading role, especially in the field of education. In this context, students access multiple benefits, but also face risks that they must take charge of, know and be guided by for their caregivers.

That children and adolescents spend more time in front of the screens requires that the adults around them be aware that they know how to «navigate» safely.

This course will cover topics such as the use that is being given to the internet and social networks; how educators can accompany them and minimize negative experiences. As well as enhancing the possibilities that new technologies bring; Y what practices and skills should be developed to combat disinformation.

With respect to this association, Entel’s Regulation, Legislation and Technology Consultant, Eilat Nacharihas stated the following:

“Current times have brought technology vertiginously closer to all people and it is key to accompany underage students in this enormous challenge that is digitization. At Entel we are happy to contribute to this goal with this training project for teachers and educators, in partnership with the Adolfo Ibáñez University”.

The program includes eight sessions, of two hours each, led by an expert in the field. Among them are four professionals from Entel, a technology and telecommunications company and development partner of this course, who will guide academics in matters of cybersecurity, technological trends and data analytics, among others.

At the end of the course, a certificate of participation will be awarded to those who have attended at least seven of the eight sessions.

Applications close on July 29 and classes begin on August 3. You can apply for free here. For more information, you can review this UAI link or write to ciudadaniadigital@uai.cl.
