ACTIVE LEARNING SPACES IN HIGHER EDUCATION AND ITS IMPORTANCE IN EDUCATION 3.0

A. Torres

Universidad Mariano Galvez de Guatemala (GUATEMALA)
In today’s world, globalization, technological and demographic changes make necessary and essential learning throughout life, while it is cooperative, global and universal. To achieve this challenge, is strongly required that universities radically transform their educational systems and meet the demands to acquire the twenty-first century competencies. However, this cannot be achieved without the necessary facilities -both, physical and virtual-, the inclusion of the appropriate pedagogy and technology, recognizing that people learn in different ways, motivating the students and accepting that learning is an inherent part of the daily life, therefore, permanent. In other words, It is necessary to make major adjustments to the current educational systems and in the infraestructure of educational institutions that students use to meet the competencies Education 3.0 demands. This paper describes the importance of implementing Active Learning Spaces - formal and informal - in Higher Education Institutions, which is justified through the collaborative pedagogy, the needs and requirements of today's students, the involvement of educational technology and the use of Internet as a platform. Besides, it also presents the inclusion and adoption of these Active Learning Spaces by Universidad Mariano Galvez de Guatemala, and its use by teachers and students.
