Thereafter, new conditions for evolution are required: creativity, criticality, filtering, strategy and responsibility. These conditions can be strengthened by application and multiplied by education. To achieve this, they combine 2 main areas of activity: – Technological area – they produce software solutions that support the pedagogical principles and provide tools to clients to manage their own offer.
– Pedagogical Area – the team develops concepts and methods for a more motivated and immersive education. They involve client organisations and their targets (students, adult learners) in experiences that increase their competencies to meet the learning challenges raised by the Knowledge and Information Society.
