Teachers from Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru will reflect on digital skills in a virtual meeting “Forging teaching networks for the Pacific Alliance”

  • Teachers and principals of elementary or primary education will meet in this activity that aims to open a space for insight and conversation around the thematic axes of the nine free courses that the PA Digital Teaching Network—initiative of the Pacific Alliance—, made available this year to strengthen teachers’ digital skills.

December 14, 2022.- In 2022, more than 3,000 teachers and principals from Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru joined the PA Digital Teaching Network, an initiative of the Pacific Alliance implemented by Fundación Chile, which was born to generate capacities of pedagogical use in digital technological tools, in view of the educational needs that were exacerbated by the pandemic.

During this period, the initiative has made available nine free, 100% online self-learning courses of high quality, which are grouped into three thematic axes: “Technology-mediated pedagogical practices”; “Education for the Digital Citizenship of the XXI Century” and “Use and management of digital tools”.

In order for the teachers and principals members of the PA Digital Teaching Network to delve into the aforementioned thematic axes and meet colleagues with similar interests, on Tuesday, December 20, this professional development platform will carry out its last activity of the year.

This is the “Virtual meeting: forging teaching networks for the Pacific Alliance”, which is aimed at teachers, professors and managers who have taken courses from the PA Digital Teaching Network.
