Virtual Educa is a multidisciplinary initiative whose focus is the promotion of good practices in Innovation applied to Education with the aim of actively contributing to social transformation and sustainable development.
Created in 2001 by the Organization of American States (OAS), this multilateral initiative is a forum for the exchange of experiences and good practices in the context of building authentic knowledge societies.
For the second time, Colombia hosted the International Meeting of Virtual Educa that this year marked its eighteenth edition. From June 13rd to 16th Bogotá was the capital of Innovation for Education as a catalyst for social transformation.
In the framework of this 18th edition of Virtual Educa, jp.ik made two great moments in this Meeting of Technological Innovation for Education.On the morning of the second day of the event, jp.ik joined the panel of speakers of the Multilateral Forum dedicated to the discussion and exchange of experiences in the field of good practices in public-private cooperation.
For one hour the speakers shared experiences and challenges inherent in the formalization of public-private partnerships aimed at implementing national initiatives.
In this Forum, jp.ik presented the first educational project implemented in Portugal. The development of this pioneering project was driven by cooperation between public and private entities.
This public-private cooperation was attended by national telecommunications companies. In addition, this cooperation allowed many Portuguese families to have access to a computer for the very first time, which makes this project, even today, a revolutionary educational project. Also participated in this Forum, among others, the Colombian company Aulas Amigas, Oracle, Genius Plaza and Lego Education.
This presence in collaboration with Ricoh Latin America marks the beginning of the partnership in the distribution of computer equipment for educational purposes in this region of the planet.
In addition, these events are also excellent forums for the exhibition and dissemination of our activity, in particular, our most emblematic educational projects, which in turn reflect our vision of disseminating quality education.Thus, during four days several governmental entities visited our stand. In this fourth edition of Inspire, an interview was published with the Colombian Minister of Information and Communication Technologies David Luna, which underlines the importance of technology to leverage the education system.
During this brief visit, Senator Nélida Sifuentes also received the new edition of the magazine Inspire as a sign of gratitude for her collaboration for reserving some of her time for an interview through which explains the evolution of the Bolivian educational project and evolution Of the Bolivian Society in terms of digital literacy.
