Humanistic learning, freedom, equality, dignity of the man, new technologies


The new technologies should have a greater presence in the educational system. If their use is aimed at learning some meaningful and formative curricula, there will be no doubth of their positive impact in the development of a humanistic learning; on the contrary, if the learning and the use of such means are disconnected of a reflexive and critical knowledge, their contribution to a more humanised and ethical educational system will never exist.
