[Xmca-l] Vygotsky and Social Justice



Hi All, 

I’d like to draw your attention to a Division G session of interest to XMCA— a symposium entitled, Vygotsky and Social Justice: Community Education and Community Development.

Here are the details.

Vygotsky and Social Justice: Community Education and Community Development 26.037 - Fri, April 17, 8:15 to 9:45am, Marriott, Sixth Level, Great America

Chair, Lois Holzman

Presenters: Ana C. Iddings, Lenora B. Fulani, Colette Daiute, Lois Holzman

This symposium presents community education practices that draw upon Lev Vygotsky’s understanding of learning and development as inseparable from each other and from the social, cultural and historical environment. To the symposium presenters, there is a strong social justice imperative in Vygotsky’s approach, yet to be fully realized within the confines of schools. Additionally, the symposium speakers represent different communities—the university and independently funded non-profits—each with a different approach to scholarship and to scholar-community partnerships globally. The symposium is designed to foster new kinds of dialogue on education, community, and community education by looking at socio-cultural research through a social justice lens and vice versa.

We'd appreciate it if you spread the word!

Lois
