THE NEW GENETIC EDUCATION One of the main objectives of education should be to e xtend the windows through which we see the world. Arnold H. Glasow Precursors For Papert1 Seymour (1995) education requires a transformation under the influence powerful vanguard of changes in science and technology, but mainly for the use and impact of computers. Video games are the primary factor to cons ider real change because they have helped children to have another vision of the school, which seems slow, really boring and outdated. A list of predecessors wh o did show a challenge of change in regard to education, to name a few are John Dewey, who proposed that children learn better if learning really part of their life experience, Paulo Freire, who mentions that children learn better if they w ere responsible for their own learning process or Jean Piaget who said that inte lligence arises from an evolutionary process in which a number of factors requir es a definite time to achieve balance. All these ideas have always been focus of attention, but in practice "never fly." It would not be likely to face these ad vances, the field of education continues to show no significant change, consider ing that in other areas such as telecommunications, transport and medicine, thes e changes are of great impact. 1 Papert, Seymour (1995). Chapter I. The machine of children. Rethinking education in the computer age. Paidós editions. The proposal of the machinery of knowledge (Papert, S., 1995) is to achieve true literacy from the point of view that believes that being a literate person mean s a person with ability to think differently, you see the world differently and their support base is the computer. Influential New technologies have now manage d to sow a genuine concern on the part of teachers, gain a broader knowledge in use, but above all to direct them in an optimum manner in which one hand meet th e proposed objectives and the motivating other students to see in them a new way to learn. Even when very few teachers have the previous perspective, as well as institutions, is palpable the fact that these tools are conditioning very impor tant to remember that education and educational reforms, changes occur that affe ct objectives, content and methodologies required for the same integration of ne w technologies (Reyes, C., 2000) two virtual environments that have produced socalled information technology and communication (ICT) in recent decades, we requ ire define a new perspective on the phenomenon of communication (http://www.uoc. edu/web/esp/art/uoc/gabelas0102/gabelas0102.html) 2

Reyes, C. (2000). Development of new technologies and application in education. Mexico: Submit. (Online) Available in s/212.DOC The new technologies of information and communication ICTs are changing everythi ng, in everyday life, work, production, communication, teaching and learning. Fo r the use of technology in school, the new positions go beyond being a technical entertainment space, are focused to provide a solid intellectual standards of e thical and cultural base that allows them to be curious young people, critics an d without prejudice, to turn them accountable and analytical information they re ceive ("The use of technology in high school," National Bank of Refresher Course s).€Receptors in the presence of all these inevitable changes that introduced t he world where it seems that for a moment while we have everything we have nothi ng, to a society under the influence of scientific and technological advances ha ve changed the dynamics of coexistence and new generations are growing up in an environment of insecurity and instability, for a moment the school's all this wo rrying scenario is manifested by not knowing how to act. Cisneros, J.L. and Anguiano, H.3 (2004) assume that tomorrow's school must under take to educate free men, away from the herd, to educate the commitment we have with society, generate very unselfish individuals despite influence of computers and learn to make their own decisions without the need for others to decide for them. It must struggle to break with the old positions that they consider all r esponses are written in the books, the school must teach the child to be innovat ive in their future as this could destroy myths and hoaxes. The point of view My academic training gives me the pattern of thinking that these new views of educ ation are similar to the genetic changes that occur in living organisms and who like the prospects of precursors have not been submitted a few decades to the pr esent but which have remained constant and these have largely been the result of adaptations to the environment and that the vast majority of cases have been ge nerated by the same man. With the above I want to say that education is not the only area that is influenced from the outside to innovate, but truth is that it demands more attention because as I mentioned, the same man then drives the tran sformation is better than an individual product "literate." 3 Cisneros, J.
