The Ministry of Education announced the
creation of postgraduate in Education and New Technologies to train
teachers in the use of Information and Communication Technology
(ICT), which will be delivered from the second half of the year. The
initiative aims to help teachers in the use of netbooks delivered by
Connect Equality Plan (conectar Igualdad - ICP).
The Federal Government has developed
several measures to guarantee the right of quality education for all.
One policy that contributes significantly to achieve this goal is the
universal access to information and communication technologies (ICT),
which finds in the Program Connect Equal the democratizing mechanism
from which students and teachers of the Argentine public schools can
get their own netbook, as well as teachers and students in teacher
In this way, arises the need to install
a specific public policy of teacher professional development from the
State, accompanying the process of democratization of access to
technologies involving the Model 1 to 1. The Specialization Teaching
of Higher level in Education and ICT, published in the Official
Gazette by Resolution No. 856/2012, assumes the educational
responsibility of providing a space for training and discussion with
academic rigor in order to enrich the institutional practices from
the inclusion and use of ICT in the daily work of teachers.
It starts from the premise that it is
essential to balance the scope and limitations of ICT, in order to
enforce their potential as tools for development of pedagogical
approaches, without overstating the impact of technological variables
on the teaching and learning.
