Technological and language aptitudes
New technologies enable new ways of communication and organization among the people as well as consultation and creation of information. These new potentials have been exploited and assimilated by the different agents of society: governments, businesses, educational institutions, shops and, of course, for people, getting to transform the way we interact, learn, buy or organize ourselves. Our society has created a network structure, where everyone can communicate with all: access to information and knowledge is no longer limited in either space or time or quantity, and also everyone can participate actively, creating knowledge or intervening in defense of rights.
The challenge presented at the European level is to ensure the inclusion of all people in this society, the challenge moves to the different social agents capable of action, such as educational institutions.
Learning new technologies must be done on a practical level, because usually involves learning to drive a device or interface, but always bearing in mind that new technologies are not independent of social action, and the concept of inclusion does not mean "knowing use" should be noted that possess an aptitude in new technology also means knowing, understanding, valuing, possess critical thinking, and constructive and, ultimately, be able to join and participate in a society that is in constant progress, which the greater should not be excluded.
Knowledge of languages and in particular the knowledge of English as the lingua franca par excellence in the world around us is presented as a useful tool to advance along this path. A truly communicative demands a change in methodology in the teaching / learning English.
