The Future Paradigm: Social e-learning

A fragment of the Digital and Social Inclusion Chart, it brings 5 key points about… Internet in developing countries (I’m sorry I cannot bring a clearer name):

  • Community and awareness: the Community as the natural environment where to run projects and articulate an endogenous development. Enhancing the power of the Community has multiplicator effects, synergies, etc.
  • Towards the transparent PC: KPCSS: Keep the PC Simple, Stupid!
  • Problem solving methodology for e-learning: we need to avoid academicism, and to construct e-learning materials that are useful, practical, and motivational. I guess this is not only true for developing countries, but is specially a critical point.
  • Internet for everybody: accessibility, accessibility, accessibility.
