In the year 2020 schools have kept on teaching because of their digital dimension. A virtual, yet real space that needs to be functionally organised and furnished, in the exact same way as you furnish your physical space.

A school's digital building is as important as its physical building. But its organisation does not follow simple digitalisation of paper resources onto the screen. Nor can it be based on a static content design using compartmentalised and rigid materials. Technology is an excellent tool for building a personalised learning community, but from a constructivist and connectivist view of learning and not from the automation of educational labour in the classroom. Schedules and payment receipts can be automated, but you should not automate teaching work, mistaking it for the mere transmission of information.

Technology contributes to improving the education of 21ST century learners. But this is because it primarily focuses and adapts to the student, not because it is a benchmark tool in the development of digital literacy. Technology facilitates autonomy, teacher proximity and feedback, learner commitment and the versatility of representations, formats and methodologies.
