TECHNOLOGY AND EDUCATION FOR SOCIAL TRANSFORMATION
Everyone can be a reality changer!
This concept is based on using different technologies - social, ancestral and digital - to develop courses, projects and prototypes that seek social transformation.
We are inspired by Citizen Innovation, the Maker Movement and Learning by Doing to create collective solutions and paths to help us democratize and appropriate technology.
When we think about the use of technology, our guiding principle is to create learning communities in contexts of social vulnerability and to develop collaborative methodologies that enable these communities to co-create, through technology solutions adapted to their social and environmental needs.
From this perspective, low-cost technologies and open knowledge are central to ensuring the democratization and appropriation of technology and to contributing towards the replicability and autonomy of participants and projects.
