Education: How do we envision the future of education
It is an admitted fact that education is experiencing challenging moments in all conventional teaching models and how they are being inserted within a concrete way to all sort of new rules that society and culture are generating by. The introduction of cross-cutting variables in educational models, the freedom and self-management of education brought about by the communications revolution, highly flexible educational curriculums and the promotion of 21st century skills are just some of the parameters on table of contemporary education. The debate in this panel proposes to explore where the educational models should be directed and how they should relate to the environment. STEAM, Fablabs, DYD, Hacking, are increasingly recurrent concepts in the educational scene, so what is the future of education?

Distributed Design
Design is a strategic tool to create socio-cultural value, organizing matter and communicating their effects through a specific function that transform our build environment. To design is always a political act. Nowadays, the design has potentially more chances to be close to generated positives transformation within our society by several novel digital fabrication technologies and Internet holistic capabilities to generate more possibilities of social cohesion, expanding the inherent objects capacities to instances that construct systems from themselves. The main idea of this discussion is to provide several points of view in order to interpret how to design is moving from objects to systems
