Technological proposals that strengthen teaching-learning

On the morning of this Friday, October 02, from the Center for Intercultural Community Innovation Slilma of the Bilwi venue, 16 young people gathered who are part of the Latin American Innovation Rally 2020, where seven challenges were posed, to which from the digital platform of the event will be sought solutions related to the context of the Autonomous Regions and the Intercultural Gender Perspective.

Dr. Enrique Cordón, vice-chancellor of the venue, stated that from the university, participating in this majestic Latin American event, is an important space because it takes advantage of the potential of the Rally. At this point it is important to mention that participants were previously prepared with possible problems seen from the region, the vice-chancellor said.

"Today they are going to implement the theoretical and the practical that they have in mind to find the most viable solution to these problems that we have identified, the participation of boys (men and women) is a potential that we want to multiply in the young people that exist in the university community," Cordón said.

URACCAN facing new technologies and innovation

For his part, Master Yuri Zapata, vice-chancellor general of URACCAN, said that for the Intercultural Community University participating in a Latin American event that has to do with innovation, with challenges that students themselves must solve, "implies that we are preparing to face the new realities that we have", he explained.

"What URACCAN faces is to demonstrate that from a university with an intercultural community base things can be done when there is willingness from the authorities, readiness from learning communities, there has been a willingness since students are also significantly involved in these processes that lead to the development of critical, innovative thoughts of individuals and peoples," Zapata determined.

Expectations from Slilma as a participant in two consecutive years

Teacher Heidy Forbes, coordinator of the Slilma Center for Intercultural Community Innovation, highlighted that, with the participation of the 4 teams from the Bilwi compound, the solutions to the challenges are expected to be based on the realities of the peoples of the Caribbean Coast.

"We're going to be following them up from the Innovation Center in coordination with the Rally committee, to give them continuity, so that these ideas come true and that they are carried out by the students," Forbes concluded.
