Schools in the cloud

© Swasky

The crisis in education fully coincides with a technological revolution that is transforming education in all areas and at all levels, from primary to university. Whether we are talking about the digital whiteboard and the tablet or the new large-scale online courses typical of e-learning, the promotion of ICT must go hand in hand with educational innovation that will restore the value of attention, seriously threatened by a bombardment of stimuli and distractions. Now more than ever, teachers, parents and students need to rediscover a new complicity with each other which hitherto they lacked. “Schools in the cloud” is a journey through the confusion of education. We review the premises of the active school movement and the educational legacy of Rosa Sensat, probe the dilemmas facing education today and envisage future scenarios that may or may not be fully integrated in the cloud computing revolution.
