Integration of Traditional and Emerging Technologies in the Education Sector


The constant evolution that the Internet and Communication Technologies (ICTs) have suffered in recent years, has allowed the creation and improvement of more productive sectors. Education sector has been one of the sectors which most increase has had due to ICTs. Unfortunately, ICTs have been designed and deployed to change drastically the learning methodologies. One of the reasons for this reality is the several technology plans promoted by the governments. The main objectives of this kind of plans are to provide ICT resources to students and schools, ensuring Internet connectivity within the classroom and to promote the access to digital educational materials. Moreover, the technological gap is the main problem to solve in this area. Lecturers, teachers and students have to learn a lot of tools to have better experience inside the educational environments. We show by this work a platform based on digital pens integrated with one Learning Management System to minimize the technological gap by using devices that are everyday used.
