Code is the new English

The culture of participation, outlined in the 60's, made us think about freedom, generosity, collaboration. The Opensource, Free Software Movement and the counterculture movements opened spaces to think and act contrary to hierarchies. As we talk about a collaborative maker culture that promotes global change once empowers individuals and promotes the creation of communities of action, we may reflect on how teaching code or, better than that, the logic of programming opens students' minds, developing necessary skills for the future; also considering the the DIY 3.0 scenario many possibilities of action, the educators’ role as multipliers and the technologies as tools for transdisciplinarity.
