  • Changing education to adapt jobs to AI: from operational to strategic

  • Why should you learn to program? And also start with Phython

    Until recently we had to know our own language, the language of mathematics, a second language, and now we have to learn the language of machines: programming. The reason is quite simple: we are surrounded by programmable machines and knowing how they speak helps us, if not to program them, at least to understand them better. Regarding learning,...

  • The letter with game enters. Hacking education X

    It is curious that we eat industrial food, do industrial jobs and suffer an industrial education, but we love craftsmanship! There is so much we have to learn today to be able to contribute to society that it is only possible through play. Playing makes us human, we feel different and we give the best of ourselves...

  • Hacking education IX: educating by example

    They say that donkeys are led with a stick and a carrot, but that is a lie because nobody does it that way; if you see someone riding a donkey or a horse, what he is carrying in his hand is usually a riding crop, in addition to the bridle that has been put in his mouth when he...

  • Hacking education VIII: keeping the illusion alive

    At the age of six a child enters our educational system wanting to be an astronaut and leaves at the age of twenty-two wanting to be a civil servant. Why do we laminate their illusion? Why do we gradually turn them into little gray men? Why do we try to make them into something that has no place in the 21st century?

  • Hacking education VII: The Internet does exist

    I have already commented before that our educational system obviates money as if children do not know what a Skylanders video game, a Barbie or a pack of stickers cost. Our system also obviates that the Internet exists, that a kid with a phone on a test can pull up Wikipedia and write a treatise....

  • Hacking education VI: reaching a consensus

    It takes two decades from the time a change is made in our educational system until its effects are seen, because first it has to be transmitted to the teachers, then they have to adapt their methods, then iterate with the student many times before we finally get a glimpse of something. There have been many educational reforms that do not last....

  • Hacking education V: opening minds

    Let's open our minds, I say those of adults because children have them open as a matter of course. The problem is that children's minds are closed from the age of six onwards until, at the age of twenty-two, they are as closed or even more closed than ours. Yes, six years old is the moment when...

  • Hacking education IV: spreading the initiative

    Imagine walking into a classroom for the first time and finding this on the blackboard My answer is simple, by the time I have finished changing the world I will be dead. Our life has no meaning if not to change the world and try to make it a better place. But let's do this exercise with children...
