Arming Generation Z with the tools they need to thrive in a society that’s more connected than ever is a worldwide challenge – but in Barcelona, Spain, an initiative called mSchools is already having a huge impact.
Sergio and Raquel travel to the Ernest Lluc Institute to find out how new and exciting teaching methods are making mobile tech and connectivity more accessible, and how it’s helping more young students see a future in the tech sector.
Through the help of their teachers, children can develop apps, mobile projects and develop core marketing and business skills. This innovative approach is also encouraging children to network from an early age, and develop a creative culture within their schools that results in bold, innovative ideas.
