The End of Capitalism - time to reflect on your pedagogy

Written by David on July 20th, 2015.      0 comments

evolution of man

I love to be challenged and this article on the Guardian Newspaper website, has really got me thinking.  If we allow ourselves to take stock, to sit an to think and reflect.  We all know that we are in shifting times, we are in transition.  There are many conflicting interests, self interests, issues that threaten the status quo that we have all become accustomed to.

The writer of the article and the book that the article refers to, argues that we are witnessing the death throws of capitalism.  Now whether you believe that premise or not, it should provoke all teachers to consider their pedagogy and ask the fundamental question, what kind of world am I preparing my students for?  Is it a world of universal work?  Is it a world of mono-culture career paths?  How important is sharing, do we want to be altruistic.  If we see our role as more than just simply creating literate and numerate automatons then we need to consider what we are preparing our students for and does our current practice best prepare them for that?
