Education and job security in Colombia are experiencing a revolution thanks to high-speed technologies. According to a report Priority researchThe global high-speed technology market is valued at an impressive US$22.5 billion by 2022, and is expected to reach approximately US$167.75 billion by 2032. These statistics represent significant growth in a field that is changing the way organizations approach training and occupational risk prevention.
In recent years, immersive virtual reality with haptic integrations has emerged as an innovative technology that is reshaping education and workplace safety at Columbia. One of the most significant projects of Positiva Compañía de Seguros, pioneers in the implementation of “Education 4.0” in the country. The project uses immersive virtual reality simulators with haptic integrations for training, education and kinematics training of managers, those responsible for social security in the workplace and workers.
The most remarkable thing about this program is its scope: it is used in more than 400,000 companies from 17 economic sectors in 32 sectors of Colombia, from San Andrés to the Amazon. It not only improves job security through educational models, but also democratizes access to these technologies in education, benefiting Colombian micro, small and medium enterprises.
Carlos Ivan Heredia, Vice President of Positiva Compañía de Seguros, highlighted the evolution of the program since 2012, when they received international certification from Price Waterhouse for the knowledge management model used to prevent occupational risks. Over the years, they have worked on four main fronts: training, coaching, training and induction, which allowed them to increase conceptual, practical and attitudinal skills.
Immersive virtual reality technologies with haptic integrations create simulated environments that mimic real-world scenes or invent entirely new ones. By wearing a virtual reality headset, users are transported into these environments where they experience visceral and immersive learning. This not only enhances education, but also encourages greater user engagement and recall.
The statement Priority research Reveals that the global high-speed technology market will continue to grow at a rate of 22.3% from 2023 to 2032. High-speed technologies are transforming education and training, improving learning outcomes and enhancing student engagement.
Additional studies highlight the benefits of adaptive, risk-free practices, soft skills development, and a playful approach to education. These technologies play a fundamental role in the democratization of education, allowing small companies in various fields to access the most relevant training and education, leveraging resources.
Positiva Compañía de Seguros integrates more than 1,200 online teaching solutions and conducts in-person educational activities, including conferences attended by more than 5,000 workers.
