Brief description

Today’s society presents new demands, methods, technologies, communication networks, and even scientific advances, reflecting it, in the field of work. In this landscape, appear new professional, emergent context and therefore new skills, which are especially related to new technologies, becoming a challenge. This challenge is related to addressing digital skills from the universities themselves, in order to achieve better employability.

The E-MAD Program is a training proposal funded by Medialab, at the University of Granada, whose intention is to improve the use of technologies and digital media to promote the development of digital skills that assist in the search for employment and incorporation into the knowledge society of those citizens who are at social risk (Fundación Acción contra el Hambre, Centro Guadalinfo Diezma y Centro Comarcal de Drogodependencias de Loja).
