We currently live in a world that increasingly revolves around globalization, which has had an impact on our daily lives, such as our interaction with others or the way we acquire goods or services. But how do these changes influence education? Here we will tell you about it, talking about globalization and digital transformation to support education.
Globalization is a dynamic process that includes dimensions like the economy, technology, politics, education, or culture, where different countries integrate societies through elements that allow communication and interdependence.
All these processes are possible to a large extent, thanks to the advances in ICT that allow the removal of existing virtual borders between markets and countries, reaching a never imagined expansion in the way of interacting.
When discussing these advances, people assume that everything is linked mainly in the economic field. However, connections can be made in different dimensions of society, allowing the development of countries in various aspects, among which we can highlight, of course, education.
Educational processes and globalization
Constant change has led education to face new challenges, such as training professionals who can respond to current interests and needs in society. Now, both teachers and students must develop new skills that provide them with the basic notions to face societal changes and learn to navigate the world according to their abilities.
On the other hand, technological advances allow crossing the classroom barriers, making the teaching process more didactic thanks to ICT and different pedagogical elements, turning technology into an essential ally for education.
It is clear that technology advances progressively. Therefore, the new generations must also do it driving education to keep up with these advancements and capitalizing on them. For this reason, it is crucial to demonstrate that the implementation of technology supports the learning processes through the acquisition of knowledge, considering that now in-person classes are not the only option but instead seek to complement multidimensional learning.

Globalization has impacted the academic sector, and the digital transformation has also opened a world of dynamic possibilities in all sectors that we have not seen before. It is essential to clarify that this process began at different times, making progress at different rates. Still, it is important to understand that digitization is only the first step in the process of constant innovation.
In this context, we see the relevance of adopting new educational methodologies such as Learning by doing and STEM disciplines, learning strategies responsible for promoting the required skills to solve constant changes and provide the current and future world skills.
In addition, we see how education is taken to another level when we integrate these processes with technology and gamification by creating appropriate teaching environments for new generations. This allows the development of contextualized situations through the use of multiple resources to facilitate the acquisition of knowledge.
We can also conclude that globalization and digital transformation promote education by delivering content to students through new technologies, using advances as a resource to develop students’ skills and competencies to acquire knowledge and apply it in real situations. In other words, to provide them with the resources to face a society that is constantly changing.
For this reason, through CloudLabs Virtual STEM, you can be part of the educational transformation since our gamified virtual environment will allow you to take your academic processes to the next level.
