La educación infantil de calidad se erige en la base de la sociedad del siglo XXI, cuyo signo de identidad más evidente es el cambio incesante. El lugar que ocupan las lenguas y la cultura en cualquier paradigma educativo es, sin duda, prevalente, y la ciencia concluye que el constructo lingüístico constituye el núcleo de la esencia humana. La lengua nos ofrece la identidad que nos diferencia del resto de las especies del planeta y la cultura va inextricablemente unida a ella, dotándola de complejos significados y posibilitando la transmisión de valores, creencias, actitudes y conductas de una comunidad.

El lector encontrará en este volumen un nuevo enfoque en educación bilingüe para la infancia, que aúna un sólido bagaje teórico (alojado en el Bloque I de esta obra). El enfoque PETaL (Play, Education, Toys and Languages) se caracteriza por su flexibilidad para adaptarse a distintos entornos culturales, porque solo así cobra sentido. Su objetivo es educar al niño de este siglo para que sea capaz de desarrollarse en (y promover) una sociedad diversa, plural y cambiante.

Education and the Body in Europe (1900-1950)

Movements, public health, pedagogical rules and cultural ideas

Series:

Edited by Simonetta Polenghi, András Németh and Tomáš Kasper

The public dimension of the body became paramount in the first half of the 20th century, when the image of the modern man, with his virile stereotypes, became a cliché, in strict connection with nation building first and totalitarian ideologies later. Yet, different cultural and educational trends advocated for life reform and liberation of the body. Both the metaphorical and the material body were invested by cultural, religious, political and educational theories and practices with strong links and similarities but also national differences.

Thanks to an international scholarly work about body education in ten European countries, this volume allows a wide comparative analysis about life reform; physical education and sport; children’s bodies, emotions, hygiene and (ab)normality.

The Method of Democracy

John Dewey's Theory of Collective Intelligence

Series:

David Ridley

In this book, David Ridley argues that John Dewey’s theory of collective intelligence provides a unique critical social theory that speaks directly to the present moment. Escaping some of the dead ends of Frankfurt School critical theory, whilst also representing a continuity of the Marxist ‘philosophy of praxis’ tradition, the book reconstructs Dewey’s ‘method of democracy’ to reveal a forgotten alternative to both left-wing pessimism and neoliberal populism. Since the 2007-8 Financial Crisis, neoliberal governments, for example in the UK, have turned to higher education to kick-start a stagnating economy. Marketisation has turned English universities into multi-national corporations and students into consumers. Academics now have no choice, Ridley insists, but to join with the public in the political struggle against ‘third wave neoliberalism’. In the final part of the book, Ridley applies Dewey’s theory of collective intelligence to the reconstruction of UK higher education, concluding with a vision of radical democracy supported by ‘socially useful’ universities and a democratic academic and sociological profession.

Vocational education has been opened up and extends to various directions: Higher education tends to take on vocational education models. Vice versa, vocational education development partially follows the structures of higher education. In addition, informal learning and recognition of competences widen the perspectives on vocational education. This book highlights a variety of developments and analyses from countries like Australia, Germany, Spain, Switzerland, South Africa, India, Ukraine and the United States, but also from a more global perspective. It reveals that regardless of national pathways a new shape of vocational education and educational provision with a specific focus on vocations, workplace and learning is emerging.

Pädagogik angesichts von Vulnerabilität und Exklusion

Bummeln durch die Landschaft der Randständigkeit

Series:

Edited by Louis Henri Seukwa and Uta Wagner

Die Ränder der Gesellschaft sind diffus und bewohnt. Randständigkeit umschreibt dabei den Zustand des oft vulnerablen und exkludierten Lebens, abseits bürgerlicher Milieus, losgelöst von monetärer Sicherheit und weitgehend entkoppelt von gesellschaftlichen Institutionen. Die verschiedenen Areale der Ränder sind gekennzeichnet durch Deprivationen, gesellschaftliche Stigmatisierung, Diskriminierung und Ausgrenzung, die alle die Pädagogik herausfordern. Die in diesem Buch versammelten Beiträge explorieren und analysieren die Vielfalt der Lebenslagen der Bewohner*innen und der verschiedenen Areale. Sie behandeln Fragen zur Konstitution dieser Areale, zur Annäherung an diese und unterbreiten eine Vielzahl an Vorschlägen unterschiedlichen Ausmaßes, wie die Pädagogik damit umgehen kann.

Las tecnologías educativas y, concretamente, el uso de las Tecnologías para el Aprendizaje y el Conocimiento (TAC) son aliadas magníficas para la educación bilingüe. Sin embargo, hasta la fecha son limitados los estudios que realmente estudien el potencial de las TAC de manera específica para contextos de educación bilingüe.

Este volumen, partiendo de estos conceptos, aborda aspectos clave como el diseño y la creación de materiales didácticos digitales o la importancia de las metodologías activas que tienen al alumnado como motor de los procesos de enseñanza-aprendizaje (incluyendo flipped learning o visual thinking, entre otras). El libro se cierra estudiando de manera específica la accesibilidad y la atención a la diversidad en educación bilingüe mediante el uso de la tecnología.

The purpose of the book is to emphasize the role of some women writers (who lived from 19th century to the present) who have devoted a large part of their editorial production to the field of children’s literature. Specifically, the research aims at highlighting how the female contribution has modified the antiquated structures and categories used within the literature for childhood. These writers proposed in their books dissonant and divergent characters compared to the custom of having courageous boys and silent and submissive girls as protagonists. Finally, the pedagogical value of some topics that appear repeatedly in their works is emphasized in order to make them fully usable at an educational level. The chapters also offer a comparative look at some European realities thanks to the scientific contribution of researchers from various geographical and scientific areas such as Italy, Slovenia, Russia, Greece, Austria, Germany, Poland, Portugal, UK and USA.
