Re-thinking Education in the Digital Age

Published on

"O mais importante a se mudar não é o hardware, mas o processo de geração de
conhecimento. Há uma histórica resistência a abandonar a hierarquia, a ceder
o poder para a base. É preciso usar a tecnologia como contra-balanço de
forças políticas mais conservadoras".

Uma síntese de uma das apresentações feitas em junho de 2005, para o PSDB no IFHC e para o PT no NAE, sobre tenologia, educação e inovação.

Walter Bender e David Cavllo faziam parte do grupo que dava alma ao Media Lab - a Escola de Sagres dos nossos tempos.

Compunham a equipe de Nicholas Negroponte, que junto com Jerome Weisner fundou o Media Lab em 83 para "inventar o futuro".
