ASSESSING LEADERSHIP, COMMITMENT, AND SOLIDARITY ON THE CLASSROOM

One of the main changes that is suffering education nowadays, is the shift from a passive to an active education model, mainly based on the student, that needs to promote new competences in accordance with the current society that demands highly skilled professionals able to deal with technology in every single aspect of modern life; on the other hand, a new generation of students is coming, digital natives who have new values and a different perspective of life, so that, the role of teachers has also changed from being the only source of information in the classroom to become a mentor who guides the students on an ocean of information. Authors believe that there are three main changes needed in order to improve education to overcome the challenges of nowadays society; (1) students’ competences, (2) teaching methods, and (3) values. In this paper authors share a teaching experience, in order to corroborate empirically whether or not transversal competences such as collaboration, problem solving, and critical thinking; values as leadership, commitment, and solidarity are encouraged and learned in a traditional class of computer science at the university. Authors present a first approach to the techniques to be incorporated in the classroom to achieve the above mentioned skills as well as some lessons learned from this experience.
