Reflecting on the Education of the Future

At the ProFuturo Observatory we promote discussion and reflection on the current state of digital education in the world.


The Observatory researches and analyses approaches, methodologies, initiatives and trends, and consults with the best experts in order to make visible solutions that allow teachers and children in vulnerable environments to improve their chances of accessing quality education.


All of this is transformed into articles and posts, both written and audio-visual, which give an account of the latest developments that are being prepared in the world of education with the use of technology.
