About the Summit
The Ibero-American Summit of Public Media is a forum to discuss and share the issues that pertain to the present and the future of public media on issues such as co-production, artificial intelligence, the rights session, and the exchange of content for educational and cultural purposes, scientific, and technological dissemination.
For her part, Patricia Aldana, representative in Mexico of the Organization of Ibero-American States (OEI) for Education, Science and Culture, emphasized the need for public media to contribute to reducing the technological gap and favoring tools for education in the most remote communities.
The official indicated that a project will begin this year in indigenous communities in the Mexican state of Durango to map the inequality gaps in the digital transformation in the education system, and build a process to place hybrid education in these communities.
