People and their potential and how actions we do can change us and our environment to be better.
The school is us, and it's not distant. Learning does not have to be slow, or stressful, or difficult. Some people learned to learn in slow motion. Some struggle to learn as they are reactive to environmental social pressure. And we accept these frameworks for learning but not all these are the best to study. The reality in schools, in public schools such as Brazil, is so sad. Kids not engaged, poor professors. And a lot of the existing frameworks are biased to support existing systems in first place, the system keeps moving and no one wants to change it. Instead a full revisit the frameworks of learning, is it possible to insert something on the side? To hack the system a bit? is it possible to use the social web? To bring a student from another country to a class in Brazil? To make a wall that can show what is going on ? A new awareness? Can we capture the data of a class without exactly filming kids? Can we simply engage new systems to change this reality?
Use of web technologies to help people.
I found TED about one year ago. While I have head before I never had access it prior to one year ago. But then, and because I was late in the game, I found a repository with a huge amount of talks that already changed my life. I watched 120 talks so far and it is helping a lot to drive the future of my kiosk project.
