Anybody else interested in joining in? It does say 18 hours a week, but i'm thinking/hoping it must be a typo.

I like this project a lot. Make it super light, really thin and just rigged enough, and I'm in. 
The Superbook is a shell that turns your Android smartphone into a complete laptop. Get the freedom of using just one computer.

Really liked how this librarian tells the story of the transformation of her library into a #makerspace . I think more and more of "education" is going to go in this direction.

¿Por qué algunos docentes tienen miedo a ser remplazados por robots? por que creen que su rol es repetir las lecciones que dan a sus estudiantes, día tras día, y que ese rol, las TICs lo pueden hacer perfectamente y mejor que ese docente. ... esos docentes son robots que tienen miedo a robots mejores y más actualizados que ellos.

Los docentes que se enfocan en el desarrollo de las competencias de sus estudiantes (en vez de los contenidos) tienen mejor expectativa de vida, y tienen una vida mucho más rica: se enfocan en hacer lo que tienen que hacer para que sus estudiantes desarrollen sus competencias.

Esto fue la iluminación de esta noche. Gracias por leer y comentar.

Yes, focus on learning rather than teaching. Huge difference. Life changing.

Why Technology Will Never Fix Education

I was very satisfied by the chicken shawarma, the coldest I've seen to the ones I've eaten in the Holy Land. They're big and they justify their rather high price. I'll go again as soon as I can.

Great place to visit. For just 4$ you get a guided tour with nice examples of the different cultures of Ecuador and some nice effects of the Equator line. Definitely worth a visit if you've made it to Quito!

Very good service, very well prepared food. Worth a visit, and maybe a few more to explore the menu.Making a reservation is the smart move here, as the place is quite small.

Nice, big subterranean mall. Currently being renovated, but the underground businesses are working normally. It also harbors what i believe is the biggest Métro hookup of lines. Keep your eyes peeled for indications when your are trying to find your way in the underground.

When you enter the first floor, you think: "This is ok, but maybe not worth 10€?" But then you take the (very tight) stairs to the second floor and you feel amazed. This is history+art+architecture at it finest.
