Virtual reality, a ‘reality’ in hospitality kitchens

At a time when technologies such as Tik Tok or Twich are part of the daily life of young people, it is essential for training centers to use educational methodologies that take into account new tools that appeal more to young people. Tools such as virtual reality glasses acquired through Next Generation EU funds under the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan, through the Madrid Regional Ministry of Family, Youth and Social Policy.

These glasses, purchased as part of the
Tomillo’s Digital Development Plan
-within the strategic line “we are an effective and agile entity”- , are part of the training of the students of the Tomillo Hotel and Catering School. With these virtual reality glasses, the students of the Tomillo Foundation’s School of Hospitality, learn professional skills in areas such as occupational risk prevention, the use of kitchen tools, in addition to enhancing their digital skills.

In addition to this material, the project enabled the acquisition of digital command readers, a touch screen for videoconferencing with other socio-educational centers at the national and international level, and digital whiteboards for the classroom.

Precisely within the framework of this project, the visit of the Vice President of the European Commission
Vice-President of the European Commission, Margaritis Schinas
Margaritis Schinas and the Commissioner for Employment, Nicolas Schmit. Both European representatives had the opportunity to learn first-hand about the CIMTO project and try out some of the equipment used by the students.
