Can education be enhanced by technology?
Transcript of Can education be enhanced by technology?
With or without a computer.
In a MOOC, while having lunch with friends, or reading a book... Education = Information transmission? Can education be enhanced by technology? That's the challenge. It consists of accumulated and integrated facts, beliefs, perspectives, concepts, judgments, expectations, know-how... It involves our personal experience It enables us to deal with new situations and challenges.

It can be transported, stored and shared.

TECHNOLOGY CAN HELP US TO LEARN BETTER, AS LONG AS IT... Information transmission? An informal lifelong process? The development of our creativity? Empowerment? A way to freedom? Curiosity? True living? Transhumanists believe society can take control of technology and use it to enhance people so that they can learn more, or maybe better. We can insert a chip in your brain to make you authomatically learn all the maths, physics, chemistry, biology and language you'll ever need to know! And update that knowldge daily. There's no need for you to go to school! Sistematized learning? Opening doors? I believe education is not about information transmission. It is about helping us create knowledge. It is not about the technology, but about how we interact with others and with the materials.
