The Disruptive Education School (Spanish: EED) is an initiative by Fundación Telefónica for anyone interested in conceiving a different kind of education. Nowadays, there are constant debates and discussions regarding the obsolescence of the current educational system and the need to drive a change in its methods and contents. With this in mind, the EED was born as a space for reflection in which active teachers, students and researchers could put forward the tools needed to put this change of paradigm into practice.

During Disruptive Education School 2015, we will be entering the second edition of the School with the same spirit as in the previous edition, and will focus on the following topics:
