Toward A "Democratic" Vision Of Pedagogy: Hermeneutic Interpretation Through Communicative Discourse In The Humanities Classroom, James Magrini 2010 College of DuPage

Toward A "Democratic" Vision Of Pedagogy: Hermeneutic Interpretation Through Communicative Discourse In The Humanities Classroom, James Magrini

James M Magrini

Philosophers of education writing on teaching for social justice and student empowerment have suggested various theories for enacting a "democratic" learning environment within our schools. Strategies that have been suggested include classroom management stressing student-centered learning, peer-interaction, and the inclusion of diverse learning needs and styles grounded in a pedagogy composed of instructor-student initiated "discourse." Building on "social meliorist," or Social Reconstruction curriculum theory, I attempt to define the notion of authentic "critical pedagogy" through the analysis of classroom instruction in the humanities, and literature in particular. There is the potential for the emergence in praxis of an authentic "democratic ...

Beyond Robot Ethics: On A Legislative Consortium For Social Robotics, Yueh-Hsuan Weng 2010 Peking University

Beyond Robot Ethics: On A Legislative Consortium For Social Robotics, Yueh-Hsuan Weng

Yueh-Hsuan Weng

As robots are increasingly integrated into human society, associated problems will resemble or merge with those in other fields, we can refer to this as “Robot Sociability Problem”. In this paper, the author analyzes the dynamic relationship among Robot Ethics, Robotics, and Robot Law at the beginning, and then proposes a “Practical Robots” attitude for solving Robot Sociability Problem. Due to “Practical Robots” attitude is based on legal regulations, therefore the author posits that a functional platform like “Legislative Consortium for Social Robotics” is crucial at the initial stage for social robotics development. In the conclusion, the author believes that ...

What’S On (Or Off) The Menu In School?, Deana Leahy 2010 Southern Cross University

What’S On (Or Off) The Menu In School?, Deana Leahy

Deana Leahy

This paper takes as its starting point an autobiographical account of food and schooling. It then questions the ramifications of recent policy imperatives and socio-political discourse that intervene in children’s food choices at school. The paper moves on to question the social, ethical and personal implications of the ‘war on obesity’ and how its contradictory aims both warn of the dangers of obesity as well as promoting the notion of children and young people having a ‘healthy body image’. The way in which this schizophrenic ‘war on obesity’ is waged at a political level is examined as well as ...
