PINTO-SANTOS, Alba R.; GEORGE-REYES, Carlos E.  y  CORTES-PENA, Omar F.. Digital gap in initial teacher training: challenges in learning environments during the COVID-19 pandemic in La Guajira (Colombia). Form. Univ. [online]. 2022, vol.15, n.5, pp.49-60. ISSN 0718-5006.

The primary goal of this study is to assess the opportunities that students have to access and handle digital training scenarios while displaying the skills needed to use information and communication technologies on a digital ecosystem. The methodological approach has a mixed design. A questionnaire containing 28 items is applied and an online discussion forum is set up. The sample consists of 280 students from the Faculty of Educational Sciences at the University of La Guajira (Colombia). The results indicate that there is a gap in access to technology, since only 45.7% of the participants claim to have a personal computer or a tablet, while only 39.3% can regularly access the Internet. It is concluded that during the COVID-19 pandemic there were considerable gaps in accessing and using digital tools; however, students developed skills to more efficiently use the technologies they had access to.
