Santiago Cucurella: Innovar en educació

Santiago Cucurella: Innovar en educació
Santiago Cucurella, Director de la Fundació Universitària Martí l'Humà

Fomentar la innovació en educació és molt més que fer proclames o declaracions de bones voluntats. És, entre altres coses, mantenir una actitud decidida en l'àmbit de la formació del professorat que condueixi a la introducció de les tecnologies de la informació i la comunicació dins les aules, és a dir, passar de la situació actual, caracteritzada majoritàriament per l'existència d'una aula d'informàtica en cada centre, a un escenari nou caracteritzat per la informàtica dins de cada aula.
Per assolir aquest objectiu resultava imprescindible canviar l'orientació d'alguns programes formatius en noves tecnologies, tal com s'està fent des del departament d'Educació. La formació en aquest àmbit no ha de tenir un enfocament finalista, ja que les noves tecnologies, lluny de ser l'objectiu final en didàctica, són un instrument molt potent i un mitjà per arribar a altres objectius que, en l'educació obligatòria, necessàriament han de tenir a veure amb l'educació en valors cívics i democràtics.

Course Management Systems: It's the Support, Stupid!

Course Management Systems: It's the Support, Stupid! - When you come down to it, the questions are: Does single-vendor CMS (proprietary CMS products such as WebCT or Blackboard) offer an inherent advantage in the areas of product and user support over the Sakai open source model?
