March 6, 2014

Experts from Mexico and the United States meeting in this capital insisted on the need to overhaul teaching methodologies and equip educators with the technological tools needed to enhance student performance.

During the two-day conference, which kicked off Wednesday at the National Library of Mexico, U.S. author and scholar Marc Prensky said the world of education was in need of a "revolution."

The innovations set to occur in that sphere will dismantle the system currently used to train students at schools and institutes, Prensky said in a talk.

He added that technology, social networks and videogames were sure to play a major role in this process and be valuable tools for transmitting new skills to young people.

Speaking to an audience of roughly a thousand people, including academics and Mexican educational authorities, he acknowledged that many teachers were afraid to work with new technologies for fear that their students' knowledge in that area would eclipse their own.

But he said educators must have the confidence to use these tools to help children develop their capabilities.
