An Action-oriented Critical Pedagogical Theory

Robert FitzSimmons, Satu Uusiautti, Juha Suoranta


In this study, critical pedagogy is put into active practice by offering insights for teachers and educators in applying an everyday pedagogy of the heart for classroom involvement. The themes of breaking through the cynicism and discovering the art of deliberation are discussed especially in the Finnish context. As a conclusion, it is being suggested that education needs to refocus itself on concern and commitment for the other in our lives. Combining love with an ideological background, such as critical pedagogy, provides a new addition to the discussion.
