Transforming education with technology
Lùcia Dellagnelo is a psychologist by training, but she soon realised that any process of human development involves understanding and proposing an education that favours it. To develop this understanding, she immediately turned her studies toward education. Today, she directs the Innovation Centre for Brazilian Education, a non-profit association with the aim of supporting the formulation of public policies that promote the culture of innovation in public education in her country. Because as she explains, “we have to think about education in terms of public policies. If we want to create a fairer and more caring society, universal access to these educational opportunities is important.”
