Why study a Master’s Degree in Education with an Emphasis in ICT

Being competent in the 21st century implies understanding complex environments, impacted by new technologies, social migrations, international competitiveness and environmental and political challenges, all of them as part of the globalization in which we live. This makes the task of teaching even more challenging, since in classrooms we find a generation of students with sociocultural habits that are typical of times of uncertainty. Teachers need to prepare to teach in this context.
