About us

META is an EdTech Portal whose aim is to foster learning in Paraguay.

As an expert organization in educational innovation, Paraguay Educa takes on the task to create an EdTech Portal whose purpose is to provide a platform to support the stakeholders in Paraguayan education as the field undergoes a process of transformation. META offers resources and services that enhance the skills of students and teachers in an equitable and integral manner

META, the 'Technological Educational Medium for Learning' (by its Spanish acronym), strives to make quality education the most prominent national goal, The project would not have been possible without the kind support of the Dubai Cares Foundation.

In developing the project, we work closely with the Ministry of Education and Science
(MEC, by its Spanish acronym) and the Ministry of Information and Communication Technologies (MITIC, for its Spanish acronym). We also follow guidelines from renowned international organizations working on education and technology, while striving to include all local civil society stakeholders.

The aim of our efforts is to build a learning roadmap that allows us to think of and develop experiences that foster critical thinking, communication abilities, collaboration, and creativity. This is why META strongly emphasizes providing teachers with lifelong learning opportunities for their professional development.

The objectives of META are to:

  • Promote active participation within the educational community;
  • Create opportunities for content creation; and
  • Offer spaces with specific and specialized content pertinent to the local context.

META is a platform designed according to the needs of educators, students, and the wider educational community, with content classified and systematized according to each profile. We aim to get students interested in learning, without age or time constraints.

We invite you to discover the plethora of resources we offer at the META Portal, resources formal and non-formal education in Paraguay. They follow diverse methodologies, and can be used in the classroom, for extra activities, as well as for your own continuing education. We invite you to participate actively in our learning, in the creation of innovative materials.
