Habilidades vs Titulaciones.-

Habilidades vs Titulaciones.- | The Future of Education  - Where do we go now? | Scoop.it

Desde la Fundación Bill y Melinda Gates se está postulando por alentar a las empresas a dejar de lado la exigencia de determinados títulos oficiales en su búsqueda de candidatos y apostar por la selección basada en competencias y habilidades. Algo que choca con la estrategia mayoritaria de los oferentes de empleo. Oferentes que exigen una titulación oficial cada vez de mayor entidad para optar a sus puestos de trabajo.

Su línea argumental se basa en que en la sociedad actual ya no funciona el sistema de las titulaciones. Un sistema que está dejando fuera del mundo laboral a gran cantidad de jóvenes que, por diferentes motivos, no han podido acceder a las mismas. Una parte de los cuales está mucho más capacitado para ocupar un determinado puesto de trabajo que alguien que posee bajo el brazo su titulo oficial. Un título oficial que, con la explosión de centros que ofrecen los mismos, hace que en muchos casos la obtención del mismo no demuestre ningún tipo de valor para el futuro postulante de empleo. Titulaciones que, cada vez más, se convierten en papel mojado a la hora de medir las competencias profesionales de quien lo posee.

MyKLogica's curator insight, August 30, 2013 10:15 AM

Creo que no deberíamos pendulear de la "titulitis" actual, al otro extremo, pero lo que sí es cierto y está demostrado, que hay muchos trabajos que necesitan (o es bueno que tengan) formación específica pero no una carrera universitaria, sobre todo cuando el éxito suele venir por un buen desarrollo de nuestra inteligencia emocional, que potencia la perseverancia, superación de retos, disciplina, comunicación, relaciones ... (entendiendo éxito por: http://www.myklogica.es/2013/02/exito-3-0-5-claves-para-conseguirlo/). De ahí que las grandes empresas estén comenzando a reclutar "por compentencias", en donde se da tanta importancia a las competencias "hard" (técnicas), como a las soft (relacionales, comunicaciones y personales).

 

 

MONICA LOPEZ SIEBEN's curator insight, August 31, 2013 2:47 AM

Intersante post sobre el cambio de paradigma hacia las habilidades (o competencias) y no sólo en base a las titulaciones.

"Today, with the explosion of digital media, teachers have so many tools at their disposal for this kind of assessment. What would a digital media exit card look like? Here are some possibilities that utilize mobile devices:

A six-second Vine video to capture the most critical six seconds of classA 16-second video to post to MixBit, YouTube's new video sharing toolA tweet that boils down the essence of the class to 140 charactersA photo illustrating the key learning moment that can then be posted on a class Instagram accountA question posted to a class Edmodo account inviting a continuation of the learning outside of class"
