How will the "Classroom of the Future" look like?

Radu Jugureanu,
AeL eContent Department Manager

Windows and Android tablets, projector screens, interactive blackboards, Multi-touch devices, Augmented Reality - all of these will constantly be used in the schools where our children will learn.

The huge opportunities provided by IT&C in the classroom were presented at the Education Congress, an event recently organized in Bucharest, where guests could see with their own eyes the "Classroom of the Future".

"We present a prototype of the classroom of the future, where the education process, run by real people (pupils and teachers), in a specific national teaching culture, incorporates the advantages of IT&C technology, proving the added value of the "e" letter in eLearning", declares prof. Radu Jugureanu, eContent Development Manager, SIVECO Romania.

The classroom of the future is closer and closer to the generation of those born in the digital era.

"Young pupils are formed, from a mental point of view, in different mode than the one the traditional class is still functioning in. They are used to organizing most of their activities and to inform themselves using digital devices, such as tablets and mobile phones, whose applications provide instant feedback. And when they reach the classroom, they are forced to log off, to disconnect from all these technologies and to integrate into a learning space, which would have been very familiar to a teacher from 300 years ago", added prof. Jugureanu.

Mihăiţă Ionel,
Customized Applications Development
Department Manager

What happens when each country has its own regulations for managing pension systems, while the mobility of citizens is increasing?

Naturally, a common framework for managing social security rights is required.

In this context, SIVECO develops IT based solutions for the uniform management of the contributors, of employers, of their contributions and for the real time allocation of the rights’ quota (quantum) that contributors are entitled to.

"The keyword for ensuring a robust IT solution for the IT based management of the social security rights system is flexibility. We have taken into account this vital aspect throughout the design and development stages of our TOPAZ system, while equipping it with the necessary mechanism for the fast integration at any time, of the legislative changes that could occur. This vital functionality, but also the ease in locating the system anywhere in any country, make TOPAZ a competitive solution at international level, providing the public institutions with an increased control over the public pensions and other social security rights systems", says Mihăiţă Ionel, Customized Applications Development Department Manager.
