THE PAST, THE PRESENT AND THE FUTURE OF EDUCATION By Ernesto Partida Pedroza We can divide the history of education in five periods. The first is the nomadic period, when the first men had to hunt large animals for food. Probably be organized so they could hunt animals. This experience provided a certain knowledge that was accumulated and passed from generation to generation. Those with knowledge of the places where dams were and knew the tools were those who had power over others. The second period was agriculture, this man became sedentary work that developed allowed to settle in one place. This brought many advantages since it resulted in the discovery and invention of many of the artifacts used and made life more comfortable. At this time were created schools and universities, but knowledge was largely restricted to the elite of society with high economic, military and religious.
Those who had land and knowledge were really powerful. Came the industrial age where the machines arrived on the man. This created a deep crisis is the time. This system led to the profound inequality between rich and poor. At this stage, raised awareness and thus increased education institutions. Only those with the machines and knowledge were those who had access to power. This period ends in 1960 with the advent of the computer, this period is called the information age, but this period ends quickly. Owners of computers became powerful new is added to those already had some power, the rest of humanity is kept in the industrial age or the other regarding the type of education.
