Why the Education Revolution Will Arise from Kids

Storytelling of an experience in a school, in which teachers were resistant to adopt new technologies, while the students were thrilled about the idea. Instead of starting the school tech transformation from the adults, in a top-down strategy, we decided to call for the students' help and train them to teach their community how to use sophisticated digital tools. The session explores endemic issues related to the education market, as well as alternatives to bypass them.
