Psychological and Educational Aspects of P. Freire's Pedagogy and Its Implementation in the Training of Professionals in Latin America
Zhizhko, Olena
Comparative Professional Pedagogy, v4 n1 p12-16 Mar 2014
The article is dedicated to the results of scientific-pedagogical research, which presupposed the analysis of psychological and educational aspects of P. Freire's pedagogy and its implementation in the training of professionals in Latin America. The analysis of scientific-pedagogical works of such Latin American scientists as M. Arnold, A. Díaz-Barriga, M. Fernández-Enguita, A. Hirsch-Adler, T. Pacheco-Mendez, A. Richard, M. Suarez-Peñaloza, C. Tunnermann-Bernheim, et al. gives reason to believe that the concept of profession is embodied in certain socio-economic activities recognized by society, and by doing that, the person receives remuneration, appropriate to his/her knowledge, abilities, skills and obtains a social status which is established by community. The professional education is defined as an organic holistic education--a system that ensures the reproduction of the productive forces (with higher or secondary qualifications) of the society. It is also the process and result of the acquisition (in the formal, informal and non-formal forms) of a certain level of knowledge, skills, norms and values of a particular profession and making a final cultural identity, which, among other values, includes environmental responsibility for our actions. It has an integral connection with adult education. It has been found out that the training of specialists in Latin America is based on psychological and pedagogical aspects of pedagogy of P. Freire: the separation of powers, foresight that is not vertical, as in a traditional educational model, but has a horizontal location of the participants of the educational process and their active participation in it.
