Abstract: Today we live in a technological world and in a digital society. Technology is everywhere and we may face very complex problems because of we have the support of a high-level technological infrastructure (Etzkowitz & Leydesdorff, 1997; Fidalgo-Blanco, Sein-Echaluce, & García-Peñalvo, 2015; García-Peñalvo, 2016a). Thus, it is true that at the present, when we talk about technology, we talk about the revolution. Nobody is oblivious to that social revolution that comes from the hand of technology. The advances occur so quickly, that we are training the generation of the future with knowledge and practices of the past in a present in which many people are already overwhelmed by the context of the informatics and communications. Nevertheless, researchers related to the technological areas try to advance and create more knowledge in their specific areas and all of them have in mind a utopia, because of from the philosophical part of their work, a revolution that does not pursue a utopia is useless.
