ELIANT stands for people who want to live in a Europe that is culturally diverse with freedom of choice:

in questions of education, the economy, social reform, organic agriculture, and complementary and integrative medicine.

Understanding information technology, knowing its potential and limitations, learning the language of programming etc. are of course all things that should be learned at school. To do so however there is no need to have a school cloud system with big data and learning analytics, learning software that posts pupil data on the internet and wifi microwave radiation. It is clear that the future will be partly determined by digital technology. It is also clear that to reach maturity in a healthy way the brain needs time. That is why we believe that teachers, parents and educators should decide for themselves the age to which learning spaces should remain screen free and the age when it makes sense from a pedagogical and developmental point of view to introduce digital media as a teaching tool. For their growth and development, body, soul and spirit need real world learning experiences in space and time. That is why the founder of Apple, Steve Jobs, did not allow his children to have either a smart phone or a tablet – he saw them as electronic gadgets to entertain adults. He knew very well that creative thinking and entrepreneurial skills are not learned from the screen but through human interaction and real world experience.
