Professor Nelson de Luca Pretto, from UFBA, spoke about education, innovation and information sharing at the class, in the speech  "Professor: a hacker way of being". "Everything is changing and we have seen this with all the world protests, including Brazil", he said, as one of the highlights of the first day of Fisl14. Education, to him, is undergoing very important moments of transformation. This change is due to the dedicated work of the professor. "Our work is hard. The challenge is the connectivity - that is everywhere and demands much more from us".

The focus of the educator has to be in the need to become a hacker. "Not only a hacker from the view point of programming, but also information sharing, decentralization and technology", he says. For the teacher, sharing is not enough. "This is meaningful only if it yields results, concrete facts and public policies that satisfy societal demands", according to him.

Another debated issue was the "hacker ethics", that has generosity as one of the main pillars. "We need to think this process in every field. We need a society that is open in data, information and access". About the challenges for education, Pretto is very objective. "Education is like a funnel, that transforms the other person in myself. What schools are really lacking is creating bottle openers with sticks and amplifiers with pet bottles", he says, about craftman's creation, ideas and innovation.

For all this to happen it is necessary a few important tools. "An education network can only change with Free Software, open programs for education, besides an activists teacher, empowered and hacker in his/her way of being", he concluded.
