We have included education as a topic largely to explore learning in the context of new technologies, and we are particularly interested in “constructionism,” which means, more or less, learning by doing. We will look at both education in schools and education in the DIY (do it yourself) context.

How Wikipedia around the World defines Education (add your language)

English: Education can be seen as a product or a process and considered in a broad sense or a technical sense

Spanish: The multi-directional process by which knowledge, values, customs and ways of acting are transmitted.

Chinese (教育): Education has a broader and narrower sense. In the broader sense it relates to the spread and study of civilisatory achievements of mankind – knowledge, skills and social life experience, in order to foster the social practice of individual socialisation and social individualisation.

German: Education is the forming / moulding / shaping of man in terms of his being human.
