Education seen through the Digital Revolution

Segovia 2018, 

Carolina Jeux, CEO of Telefónica Educación Digital, exposes how the digital revolution is transforming all aspects of our lives. It is not a matter of a period of change, but rather of a change of period that needs us all to understand the role that technology is playing and how it is going to change the world. Digitalization is having an impact on education, a key pillar of progress for society and the well-being of all citizens. It is fundamental today to integrate technology in education to achieve democratization of access to knowledge, and guarantee greater equality of opportunities, even if it forces us to keep on learning throughout our lives.

From a rigorous and optimistic point of view, this doctor has helped us to understand ourselves as humans and our reality, based on neurology and the relationship between the brain and pain. He will talk about these matters with the intellectual and Minister of Health and Social Protection. He will talk with journalist Hassan Nassar.
