Are schools capable of understanding that knowledge is not there to be kept frozen in our memory? Is it possible to connect knowledge with students’ life projects? Pepe Menéndez is one of the drivers of the pedagogical spring that is occurring in Catalonia and shares his vision on these questions. Pepe is a member of the management team of the Fundación Jesuïtes Educació de Catalunya (Spain) and promoter of the Educational Transformation Project “Horitzó 2020”. He is a professor of literature, a journalist and a professional training expert. He directed the Joan XXIII-Jesuïtes Bellvitge Study Centre and the Centre de Tecnologías Ituarte (CETEI-Jesuïtes Educació), an experimental centre for techno-pedagogical innovation. He had a lot to do with the document of the Education Act in Catalonia. And he is Catalan, in case this was not clear.
