  33. 33. Research Limitations 1. The inability to adequately develop a reflection about the shift paradigm theme by temporal and conceptual limitations related to the type of investigation in question. 2. Many of the considerations made ​​in theoretical terms are still, in practice, in an embryonic state or are manifestations of future perspectives. 3. Density of the technical language that leaves submerged some interpretations and intersections between fields (technology and education, economics, politics, and so on). @ceciliatomas conclusions 33
  34. 34. @ceciliatomas Perspectives Opened by the Study 1. Continue the investigation about the social - semantic Web envisaging developments (as in IoT). 2. Put itself in the plane of the consequences trying to find ideas about ways followed by humans. It is expected that the path of human evolution will, certainly, be a path followed by the smart technology ... Or not?... conclusions 34
