The educational opportunities presented by technology

The irruption of AI, the Machine Learning and the Big Data are accelerating the process to have artificial tutors that will permit the development of Home Schooling. But these opportunities come with great challenges and risks for freedom. This was the topic of the talk given by Agustín Etchebarne, director of the Freedom and Progress Foundation, in the UCEMA seminar on Educational Freedom.

"Children have to be taught not to be dogmatic with any idea, not even liberalism. My advice to them is to return to Enlightenment. Read everything, all the currents, draw their conclusions and talk with others to see if their ideas resist the competition", emphasized Etchebarne.
