Gap Radar

GAP RADAR represents for this project a fundamental piece among the objectives we pursue: attention to students in difficulty, and at the same time to their families, in the processes of educational digitization. This application, which will be free to download for Android and IOS devices, represents a qualitative leap in the detection, care and monitoring of students in situations of digital divide or educational disconnection. It will help the educational community to be more coordinated in access to information, to offer more protocolized responses in less time and to unify the monitoring of cases thanks to the inclusion in the process of all the agents involved in socio-educational care. from each of them.

A series of indicators will be established that collect data such as access to devices and the internet, digital attendance at class sessions, delivery and quality of the work planned by teachers in each group of students, reaction to communications from educational agents such as teachers, tutors and counselors, social and family care for students, etc. With the data obtained periodically (proposed every week), each of the agents involved will receive specific information on the students at risk grouped into three codes: GREEN (normal situation), ORANGE (progress but with specific localized difficulties) and RED (need immediate intervention).

In this way, an alert sequence is created that is organized into four levels: teachers, tutors, counselors and management teams. Thus, each of these educational agents receives an alert and can start up the previously defined care protocols. Therefore, information on risk cases is clearly prevented from being dispersed or arriving late at the levels at which the necessary decisions must be made to tackle the different problems.


The digital divide in Spain reaches very worrying proportions: almost seven and a half million Spanish men and women have never accessed the Internet and 4.1 million homes in Spain do not have Internet access, which means that 25% of homes Spaniards are excluded from the digital universe.
The study Survey of schools: ICT in Education, prepared by the European Commission, gives a good account of this lack. The low ICT adoption figures presented by Spaniards have a clear analogy with the scarcity of resources: practically 3 out of 10 Spanish students of 16 years of age never, or hardly ever, use a computer in the classroom. In Italy the use of ICT in the classroom exceeds 60% and, however, in Portugal it drops to only 20%.
Educational centers have been involved in this situation from one day to the next. The digital divide has reached education in the form of digital absenteeism in online classrooms, disconnection and/or demotivation of students in digital training and in the difficulties of households in accessing reliable equipment and a stable Wi-Fi network to be able to keep up with the school rhythm.
And it is the job of schools, socio-educational authorities and all the agents that act around the students to be able to give an agile and effective response to the different situations that arise.


– Teachers- to detect students disconnected from the school routine
– Tutors- to identify medium and high risk cases
– Counselors- to be able to receive regular and up-to-date information on the cases under follow-up
– Management teams- to implement agile action protocols that allow early intervention
– Socio-educational authorities – to receive continuous and updated information from the most needy students


– Identifies cases of students in the digital gap or at risk of educational disconnection
– Distributes, filters and prioritizes the information to the different educational agents
– Facilitates the coordination of actions and the management of incidents
– It also involves students and families in supporting the reduction of cases
– Incorporates educational and social authorities in care in connection with educational centers


– Early detection of students at risk: greater risk control
– Continuous attention with updated data and categorized according to alert level: student care in a more personalized and effective way
– Coordinated follow-up of cases by all agents: the risk of recurrence of cases is better avoided


– GAP RADAR can be used in any educational center in formal and non-formal settings
– The educational and social authorities can value this application as an extensible tool at the local, regional or national level
