Becoming Individual in Education and Cyberspace
Krejsler, John
Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, v10 n5 p489-503 2004
This article traces key competences that are necessary to master as teachers are increasingly obliged to orchestrate learning as initiation into individual autonomy. The context is one that acknowledges that learning increasingly dissipates out into cyberspace. Inspired by Gilles Deleuze and Michel Foucault, the article explores preconditions for professionalizing the teacher using project work as a generalized case. Project work claims to anticipate initiation into autonomy and reflects new power relations between professionals and clients as well. It is assumed that project work illustrates the transition from traditional school forms to a more individualized society where Information and Communication Technologies media (ICT) are increasingly integrated in learning. It is likewise assumed that the procedures and rules governing project work--as a way of shaping the image of oneself as an individual--correspond in ambivalent ways to competences that one must master in order to navigate as an up-to-date employee, citizen, and parent, and so on.
