“We need to refresh education, make it fun. Technology has allowed people to be communicated and have access to knowledge. We are looking to offer and integrate all of these countries in an educational platform where everyone can train themselves,” says Carlos Slim.
The best part of this is that anyone that has access to the Internet or a smartphone can access the free online educational platform. Aprende is the Spanish word for learn and you can download the app called App-Prende. The website will also have a jobs section where students can search for jobs.
