Our personal history with school

Our Personal History with School

  • Example: Our “first day” anecdotes…

  • I.E., We have an understanding of ourselves as students, learners, practitioners, academics, professionals.

  • Example: We have heard from parents, relatives, mentors about the “importance” of school.

  • I.E., We have learned / acquired a coded set of assumptions, values, prejudices, politics, about what “education” or “learning” means.


Vygotsky in educational psychology 1926

Vygotsky in Educational Psychology (1926)

“Our movements – they are our teacher..”Ultimately, the child teaches himself. It is in

his organism as nowhere else that there occurs the decisive engagement between all those

different factors that determine his behavior for many years to come. In this sense,

education, in every country and in every epoch, has always been social in nature;

Indeed by its very ideology it could hardly exist as antisocial in any way….

(The) assumption that the student is simply passive, just like the underestimation of his

personal experience, is the greatest of sins, since it takes as its foundation the false rule

that the teacher is everything and the student is nothing….

Education should be structured so that is is not the student who is educated, but that the

student educates himself.
