On the 16th, the education officials of Bogota and Tunja of Colombia visited the digital education center under the Incheon Metropolitan City Office of Education.
For Incheon’s elementary school students, the Incheon digital education center offers courses on using digital devices, SW/AI, coding/app development, and creating Metaverse space. After attending classes on the metaverse space creation with elementary school children, the guests introduced the current situation of the high-tech classrooms in Bogota that Incheon City had encouraged.

On the 18th, the secretary of education of Bogota City and her deputy, along with the secretary of education of Tunja City, attended two sixth-grade classes at Sangmyung University Elementary School that utilize ELiF’s elite course.
Our ELiF program has been adopted as a smart classroom learning program at Sangmyung University Elementary School since last year. The elite course of ELiF offers formal English presentation and writing assignments, such as essay writing, presentation projects, and discussion groups, and enables students to freely discuss academic topics.
The attendees then made their way back to our headquarters to participate in the closing ceremony.
We presented our digital vision for the implementation of Colombia’s public education ICS at the closing ceremony and talked about the country’s future educational trajectory. In addition, we discussed on plans to launch our ICS system in the Colombian public school market after demonstrating our Oxford Discover, Math Alive, and englisheye programs. Finally, as both sides exchanged thank you gifts, the day wrapped up successfully.
The secretaries of education of Bogota and Tunja made the decision to hold in-depth discussions on how to apply and broaden the introduction of our top-notch digital education programs to public education in Colombia and to continue working together to increase educational opportunities for students there.
