Call for submissions: XV Puerto Rican Congress on Research in Education, College of Education – UPR (2019)

The digital age proposes new teaching and learning approaches that respond to the current and future needs of students at different educational levels. It is a challenge to transform and restructure educational systems to develop learning and knowledge. Technologies bring different contexts and meanings to learning models and instructional strategies, thus giving insight for the integration of new learning benefits that will shape the educational system. The biggest challenge is to ensure a high quality education for all, based on an innovative, open and flexible learning.
