Education, media, TIC, formal / informal knowledge, theoretical foundations


Nowadays young people live in two very different worlds: one which is related to school and one which is related to the streets and the day-to-day life. Then, we can speak about two ways of education: a formal education that is ruled at schools and University, and an informal education that children learn out of the school. In this paper, we will focus on this relevant problem which causes many reflections and hopes on the future of Latin American education, in both formal and non formal contexts.
