Abstract

The digital divide created between Cuba and the rest of the world has forced us to use alternative technologies in order to preserve and strengthen the achievements of the Revolution in the field of education. One of the actions undertaken in this regard consists of making audiovisual equipment and media become a supplementary element of the teacher’s educational work, and thus ensuring the rational use of the aforesaid media. This paper shows how to use a new trend of information technology and communications, using hybrid or smart TVs. This low-cost solution for low energy consumption, conceived as part of the educational process at all levels of the Island, provides some technical aspects and also shows, in the outline, some other ideas for incorporating this technology into the teaching-learning process. The results of laboratory tests are likewise shown.
