Abstract:Adapting to the requirements of the “new normal” COVID-19 has required experimenting with new teaching-learning and assessment tools that allow the acquisition of soft skills and the incorporation of the SDGs in teaching activity. The adaptation to synchronous online teaching has meant a great effort for both teachers and students, precipitating the use of new digital platforms that make up for the shortcomings of non-presence.
The use of different gaming platforms in combination with online design programs has allowed to propose activities through visible learning, responsible learning (incorporation of the SDGs), and innovative evaluation, always from a collaborative perspective. The students have received very satisfactorily the use of game platforms and design platforms to create interactivity during the sessions, being able to solve the practices in a co-creative and dynamic way.
The limitations of the new scenario have forced us to focus on working on the acquisition of soft skills and the application of the SDGs through digital tools that allow emotional connection with students, adapting the teaching-learning process to the real world to which they face.
