As the years progress, new technologies emerge that require certain skills to handle them, it is always necessary to stay updated in this regard so as not to be left behind.
With the great expansion of the internet we have many online resources to learn new skills and technologies.
Many are paid, others free, although it is always important to see if the institution or company that offers these resources has experience in it.
IBM launched its Open P-TECH platform for free digital education with content in Spanish. With it he seeks to prepare young people, educators and those interested in technological skills in Latin America.
On this platform, users can learn technology skills in areas such as cybersecurity, blockchain, data science, artificial intelligence and cloud computing in courses of three to six hours.
IBM launched the P-Tech IBM education model in 2011 to address the challenges of science education, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM, for its acronym in English) and now it is already present in more than 24 countries, with 150,000 students and 600 corporate partners.
The program includes a student progress dashboard to monitor their progress and assign new content. What's more, when they finish each course they get digital badges to add to their CV and social media, like LinkedIn. For the record you must click on this link.
