SCHOOL and society and a children’s choir will be singing lesson: thousand times hundred, one hundred thousand; thousand times thousand, a million. Antonio Machado. THE know learning is the best fruit of the school live immersed in a flood of data. The difficulty of assimilating them grows to the extent that increases the diversity and complexity as well as the channels through which they are discharged. The level of available data may block us completely.
We are talking about data and no information to highlight a very special feature of our time: the confusion between data and information, and between the latter and the knowledge. The Middle cultural level that is required for the compression of a text is increasingly higher. We are in the information age and however the level of confusion seems to be growing. Hence the importance of the role of the school to contribute to the achievement of change in communication technology and information into knowledge. Students have to find the school everything that is present in society and culture in which they live; the school has to be the dynamic circumstance of the individual life in the bosom of society itself. In a society of knowledge and communication the Mission of the school is the offer elements that allow the development and the ability to learn: to school are going to start learning to learn. Know to learn is the best fruit which can offer schooling. In this sense, the school must be present all means that society has to offer information: books, newspapers, radio, television, computer nothing may be alien to the school because nothing is alien to the life of the student.
In any of the areas in which it is divided the academic scene no matter concerned in languages, languages, mathematics, physics, ethics, or music, in all they can make the training exercise in search of information or data appropriate to the approach of a course or a real context. This means, by the teaching staff, a change in perspective from which contemplates its role; in offering search more elements than previous solutions; to propose activities rather than to present scholastic exercises decontextualized and anachronistic. It is not easy, but yes stimulant, trying to balance between the strict and conventionally academic and these new ways of doing. On the other hand developing communicational activities, contact with other groups in geographically distant schools, is an activity that deserves special attention if it is to make the students live and know as something real virtual presence of different cultures, as can be seen in the programmes of all kinds offered us indiscriminately the audiovisual media. Aware of these features of our time is necessary to discover new paths that walk to teach new activities valued with a high potential of learning for the student.
