MMCP: The “Critical” in Critical Pedagogy

Sean Michael Morris, Hybrid Pedagogy, Jan 20, 2015
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I pretty much agree with this: "Critical pedagogy could be thought of as a philosophy of teaching that shows more than tells.... 'Knowledge emerges only through invention and re-invention,' Freire writes, 'through the restless, impatient, continuing, hopeful inquiry human beings pursue in the world, with the world, and with each other.” (53) To “tell” is to rob the learner of her capacity for inquiry.'" And yet, says the author, we tell, even if only to each other. This includes not only statement of fact, but criticism, fault-finding, and such. Isn't that what this post is?
