Edupop Manifesto | Manifiesto Edupop

We do believe in technology, because we do believe in individuals. And that’s why we think our struggle is over the future of technology and over the way we manage with it, it is over the struggle for the future of our culture that is assailed from all corners by the punk way of thinking. Technology and knowledge must be free to share, sell or use in order to give away ideas, innovations and visions. So we will receive whatever is shared, sold or gave away in return. We live in a connective world where culture and knowledge is everywhere, and individuals must be free to do as they want in it. Look for the perfect melody Enter the free stage: EDUPOP!

Read in order to live.~ Gustave Flaubert ~ We shouldn't teach great books; we should teach a love of reading.~ B. F. Skinner ~ “We read to know we are not alone.” C.S. Lewis “No matter how busy you may think you are, you must find time for reading, or surrender yourself to self-chosen ignorance.” Confucius “I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.” Groucho Marx
