Out of the Ghetto: Psychological Bases of Dialogic Learning
García Carrión, Rocío
International Journal of Educational Psychology, v1 n1 p51-69 Feb 2012
The conception of learning in the information society has been affected by the dialogic turn of educational psychology. The effective teaching-learning processes respond more and more to the communicative conception of learning in which dialogue and interaction are key elements. In this framework, the dialogic learning emerges as an interdisciplinary conception that collects contributions from psychology of education, particularly from sociocultural theory, and from those contributions that have located learning as the result of social interaction. This article presents the psychological basis of dialogic learning on the basis of which it is developed this eminently communicative and transformative conception. Specifically, it focuses in five of the seven principles of the dialogic learning of which it is illustrated with the voices of teachers, families and students, by means of the collected data in an elementary school of an underprivileged area in the south of Europe.
