Educational events

Description / Objectives

Promoting the role of technology in education.

Technology in education is a reality and the city is the venue for various events where that is made evident. The educational community, schools, families, children, young people, the research community and businesses get together in these events, which fulfil an educational, demonstrative and inclusive role. Good examples are the active presence of Barcelona City Council at YOMO (Youth Mobile Festival) and the STEAM Conference.

The Barcelona Digital City Plan's objectives include fostering new jobs and educating and training the general public in the use of new technologies, from children to professionals, in what is now called "jobs of the future" or employment in the 21st century. In order to do this, it works with the education community and various Barcelona public organisations (Fab Labs, civic centres, libraries, Cibernàrium, etc.) which act as agents to fulfil this need.

However, it is not only necessary to act, but also to expand the scope of these actions, ensure that they reach as many people as possible, and that the maximum amount of information is transmitted. For this reason, events such as YOMO and the STEAM Conference allow us to reflect on the role that technology can play in education and provide the education community and families with that information.

Workshops are held, with the collaboration of various public and private city organisations, with the aim of introducing children and other audiences to collaborative participation, recycling as an active feature of creation, science and new technologies, always with a marked social content and distanced from the user-consumer model. This gives younger children the chance to become creators.
