Theme: Technology and education

“Colegio Colonial de Pirque”, the “Museo de Chupacabras de Pirque” and “Humor Sapiens”, from Santiago de Chile, announce the “Humor Sapiens 2024 Contest”, with the following objectives:

I- Only subject: “Technology and education”.
Technological advances have impacted learning and teaching. An example: what we experienced with virtual classes due to the last pandemic. For many, this technological progress has a positive impact on aspects such as autonomy and motivation or technological understanding in itself. Another example would be those known as flipped classrooms, where general explanations or readings are done outside of class, using audiovisual tools on electronic devices. But there are opinions against, such as the misuse of cell phones during school hours, which distracts the student from the pedagogical objectives and, in addition, there are those who point to a passive use of the content, highlighting the loss of the practice of critical thinking and creativity in the classroom, and a greater digital divide due to the price of electronic devices.
