Technological trends, transformations, and new learning models: The San Francisco Bay Area case

agosto 22, 2023


While it is true that technological, economic, and social trends also extend their influence on educational and learning models, it is also true that in certain areas of the world, where the vanguards are at home, this is more the case.

The case reported concerns the San Francisco Bay Area, an area that holds within it Silicon Valley, with over thirty world-leading technology companies and the best start-ups in the world.

It is an area where education does not take second place and where research also commits a large part of government and private entrepreneurs' profits. In the San Francisco Bay Area, development passes through a new idea of education.
