Before, parents taught children to distinguish
reality from fantasy

(Freud, Winnicott,Fonagy)





Now, parents should teach children to
distinguish the real from the virtual


In the future, maybe, the parents should
teach children to distinguish the virtual
(reality predominantly) from the real


Education:

between real and
immaginary

untill 2000







between real and virtual

from 2000




between virtual and real

in the future



HISTORICAL EVOLUTION OF EDUCATION

(L. Pisano 2011)



The virtual is not the opposite of real

(P. Lévy)


Many people continue to think the virtual
as a bad thing: fake experience or, even
worse , a non
-
experience, while they are
abusing each day of virtual experiences:
chat, email, etc.


Bu today we have the virtualization of
writing
(hyper text),
of economics
(financial markets)
and

of the body
(distant transplants)





VIRTUAL:


Medieval Latin:

virtualis and virtus


Virtualis means

cio che esiste
in potenza e non in atto


(Aristotele)


The tree is virtually present in
the seed, so it is real.



The virtual can not be opposed
to the real, but to the actuality


because virtuality and actuality
are two different ways of the
real


What is the virtual?




The virtual word seems unreal but is not
less true of the real


One student can live in the confusion
between the reality of what he is doing
(how it is) and its unreality (as it could be)
and therefore he could mistakenly classify
his behavior on line



The body is not available



Split between body and mind








Virtual:

The body, the subject of
perception, is absent:

so, you can

t see me and

I can

t see you





Confusion of the logic

(Pisano, Cadau 2011)





Virtual reality allows you to make extreme
experience without physical interaction,
thus avoiding the danger physical





Without sense of danger the DEFENSE are
not activated and therefore there is no
growth


So with the virtualization the man may
remain as a child


Sometimes the virtual is the
opposite of the growth




Confusion of the logic and growth of the
evolutionary age






Mirros phase:







Phase of


the computer screen:


REGRESSION



Virtual Identity may be
scared by:

Separation

Differences

Action


Confusion of the logic and evolutionary
development:


from mirror phase

to phase of the computer screen

(Pisano, Cadau 2011)









Educate young people the use of the virtual





Educate young people to distinguish reality
from fantasy and

fantasy from the virtual

Help young people to
understand that the
virtual is a form of
reality

Encourage experiences
off
-
line and the
comparison with the
problematic aspects of life

Support

the
mirror

stage

Parents
should
