Here is a small selection of the latest posts:

DPJ: "Objective" means "deadly" (i.e., without an alive subjectivity).

DPJ: #Cohen, L.: "The developmental view of play, according to #Sutton-Smith, 'is an ideology for the conquest of children’s behavior through organizing their play' (2001, 205). In contrast, a Bakhtinian carnivalesque perspective of play and language examines self in the relation to the language and actions of others" (2011, 177)

DPJ: Crisis of conventional schooling. Many people claim that there is school crisis but they cite different evidence for this:

Evidence: Low test scores. Remedy: Teach to the test.
Evidence: Alumni don’t remember much after school graduation. Remedy: Improve memorization.
Evidence: High dropout rate. Remedy: Keep students in school by rewards and punishments.
Evidence: Lack of conceptual understanding. Remedy: Promote students’ interested questions.
Evidence: Alienation. Remedy: Engage students in defining curriculum.
Evidence: Lack of studies. Remedy: Pay students for their learning.
Evidence: Lack of ownership for their learning. Remedy: Promote students’ authorial agency.
Evidence: Lack of cooperation with the teachers’ demands. Remedy: A system of rewards and punishments.
Evidence: School violence. Remedy: Forced exclusion.

Other definitions of school crisis?
