Pedagogies for the open knowledge society Academic Article in Scopus uri icon

Abstract

  • © 2016, The Author(s). Learning challenges within the knowledge society cannot be limited to the technological dimension. Learning and education are embedded in economic, political and cultural contexts. Pedagogies reflect this social condition. Consequently we need to situate the pedagogical practices on a wider debate regarding their place in the global system of knowledge production. Some questions are relevant in assessing these practices: What is the sense of learning in the knowledge society? How this technological paradigm modifies our conception of learning and education? How pedagogies are related to technology and the global system of knowledge production? What principles are associated with these proposals? Through a case study of two learning environments, Wikipedia and Google, we compare the two models and the values, principles and competences associated to each of them.
