In this blog: Freire, MOOCs and Pedagogy of the Oppressed we find an interesting perspective of the philosophy of Paulo Freire, establishing a parallel with modern expressions of innovative pedagogy as MOOCs.
(some comments about this book and the author)
Pedagogy of the Oppressed, written by educator Paulo Freire, proposes a pedagogy with a new relationship between teacher, student, and society. This book published in 1970 proposes an innovative vision of pedagogy and is considered one of the foundational texts of critical pedagogy.
In the book Freire calls traditional pedagogy the “banking model” because it treats the student as an empty vessel to be filled with knowledge, like a piggy bank. However, he argues for pedagogy to treat the learner as a co-creator of knowledge.
