Appropriate/Critical Educational Technology Within Freire’s Framework, Toward Overcoming Social Exclusion
BEATRIZ LIDIA FAINHOLC
The intent of the socio-cultural-educational approach for public policies is to strengthen social inclusion—an alternative to the existing lines. In general, this characterizes Latin American education. This approach provides a comprehensive framework and the cross perspective in face-to-face and virtual educational programs applying Freire’s Pedagogy and Cultural and Social Studies. This gives us inputs to contribute—under the umbrella of the Appropriate and Critical Education and Technology approaches—to the construction of a substantive equity and conviviality, by the concise application of ICT networks and derivative devices, articulated with its collaborative, dialogic, and participatory Freirean methodologies.
