The Future of MetaEducation. Some things we need to consider to prevent big mistakes.
Talk Description :
Throughout these last months, we are witnessing a meteoric race toward the Metaphoric dyslexia of the MegaMeta definitions of topics that do not exist.
Committing the clumsiness of revising history, and what is more important, forgetting the fundamental object, the final user, and his needs.
How many recipes of visionaries and futurists are written every day, with an introduction Hyper… The future of… lacking any solvency, evidence, and serious and deep reflection.
In this perfect storm, the user appears, looking from the outside, perplexed by so many recommendations and mega phrases… they look at him constantly telling him that he is wrong and that if he does not change to the clandestine recipe of each one, he will fail… That’s the real impact of social media, how it works, their diffusion, and free time.
Any TikToker making a 10-sec video, believes is Spielberg or Coppola (though they don’t have an idea who are they), any influencer or blogger, think they are an artist or a writer… Mozart or Shakespeare.
At the end of the tunnel, there is always light… and in that direction, we are going to navigate in this session.
Clarifying the shadows of the Megas, and betting on the necessary redefinition of MetaEducation, with a focus on emotions, sensations of the body and the brain, and how these influence the learning process. And how to promote them from immersive technologies in an intelligent way… always looking at the citizen, his limitations, accessibility, the sustainable and democratic economy on a planet that is getting weaker.
The keys are written, you just must drink from the source of knowledge, experiment, work…hard, with imagination, and apply the rules of common sense.
Listen to your body, then listen to your brain. Do you want to join me?
