Much has been said and written about the impact of the use of technology in education. From the most ardent supporters, who rely heavily on technology and its revolutionary potential, raise the point that computers would be enough to drop from helicopters into the villages to see how children become learners themselves wise, without schools or teachers, to those who dismiss any impact, and would do without technology in schools, to safeguard the traditional space away from the "noise" that they introduce interested.

In my particular experience, education technologies are both inevitable presence (students already live and grow in a technological world, and is part of their cognitive repretorio) and a tremendous opportunity for disruption, change outdated practices and vices acquired by our educational systems. Maybe if the most important of them, having forgotten that the center of the educational process in students, in each one of them.
