Rodriguez-Sedano, Alfredo; Paris, Ana Costa; Mut, Maite Dassoy
Online Submission, US-China Education Review v8 n5 p627-636 May 2011
The present article approaches some of the educational implications borne by humanity with technological progress. We begin by pointing out significant data that classify what is considered relevant. Then, confronting the future is discussed by analyzing the attitudes necessary to promote the goals. Confronted with these challenges, three possible focuses are suggested in accordance to the novel realities issued from science and technology: The first is the revitalization of humanism; The second is, the society of knowledge calls for both "radicalism and responsibility", which is also a response to our own decisions, without avoiding their consequences nor discharging them in others; The third is, understanding the true and full significance of solidarity. Finally, some approaches and educational suggestions are highlighted allowing parents, professors and students the greatest opportunity for profiting from the limitless resources that science and technology provide us for personal growth.
