Freire’s contemporary pedagogy for the XXI century education

The course focuses on the principles of the Brazilian educator and thinker Paulo Freire applied to the XXI century education and classroom. The main objective is to discuss and reflect on Freire´s educational legacy, mainly his contemporary philosophy. To do so, the activities proposed aim at promoting reflection and dialogue among the participants — mostly teachers, educators and teacher educators — from diverse areas of knowledge, cultural and educational contexts. The interactions will be synchronous and asynchronous, and will be based on some publications in which he revisited a few of his theoretical positionings. Participants will have the opportunity to better understand some of the main Freirean’s concepts, such as palavra-mundo, banking education and pedagogical praxis, and relate them to their educational contexts.
