In 2015, the UN approved the 2030 Agenda with 17 Sustainable Development Goals, including goals ranging from the elimination of poverty to the fight against climate change, women's equality, the design of our cities, and quality education. These objectives are shown as an opportunity for countries and their societies to take a new path in order to improve the lives of all, without leaving anyone behind.

It seems a difficult dream to fulfill, guarantee an inclusive, equitable and quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. However, today new technologies, access to electronic devices and the growing development of infrastructure, is allowing this dream to be closer and closer.

To provide quality education for all, it is important to have 3 key factors: quality content, technology and teaching methodology. That is why Yopublico, a company specialized in content, and CanopyLAB, start-up in digital education that combines artificial intelligence algorithms and adaptive learning to give each student a unique learning experience have joined forces.

Together, they aim to create learning opportunities, in a faster way, in more places and at a lower cost based on exponential technologies for education such as e-learning.

CanopyLAB and the future of learning

CanopyLAB is an educational technology company (Ed-tech) with the mission of changing the way we learn. This vision of changing the way we learn was conceptualized based on the PhD research of the executive director, Sahra-Josephine Hjorth, at the University of Aalborg, Denmark; focused on virtual learning environments, social media and empowerment through learning.

Likewise, CanopyLAB is the only e-learning platform that is consciously built on social media infrastructure, and this is precisely a key element in education. Most e-learning platforms offer their students the same content in the same way. This is exactly what CanopyLAB wants to eliminate, including the social component to the learning process and creating personalized educational experiences for each student, through adaptive learning.

Yopublico and content digitalization

Yopublico is a Latin American company that has been working in the publishing sector for several years, mainly focusing on helping universities, traditional publishers and authors to digitize and publish their contents worldwide in different formats, such as electronic books, audiobooks and printed books under demand.

The digital revolution has made smartphones and the Internet connection increasingly accessible. Today there is the necessary infrastructure to begin to democratize education and literature worldwide. Both key to the sustainable development of any nation, says its executive director Giancarlo Mena. That is why, Yopublico embraces the alliance with CanopyLAB to undertake the mission of guaranteeing an inclusive, equitable and quality education, focused on emerging markets such as Latin America.

To celebrate this agreement, on August 27 of this year, Yopublico will organize the event “I Meeting: Trends in digital education and new technologies” at the PUCP Open Amphitheater, where several professional speakers from the education sector will address the new opportunities for education digital from different perspectives: society and government, universities and companies.
