Technological skills

Definition

Technology skills are all the abilities that help you interact with the digital world around you. Being technologically skilled refers to proficiency in digital or technical media

Having these skills allows facilitators to deliver engaging and effective learning experiences, even when participants are not physically present in the same location, using different tools, platforms and instruments.

WHY IS IMPORTANT THIS SKILL?

Technological skills are becoming increasingly important for Facilitators in Work Based Learning, especially in today’s digital age. In WBL, facilitators need to be familiar with a wide range of technology platforms and tools to effectively deliver training and facilitate discussions.

Familiarity with virtual meeting platforms such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Google Meet is essential for facilitators, as these platforms are commonly used for virtual training and workshops. It is important for facilitators to have a strong understanding of how to use these platforms, including how to conduct virtual meetings, manage audio and video settings, and share presentations and other materials.

Being proficient in Technological Skills can reinforce the internal communicative function, for building effective relationships with students, and the external one, when dealing with stakeholders, partners and other subjects involved in the Work Based Learning environment.
