Perspectives of Schooling through Karaoke: A Metaphorical Analysis
Arora, Payal
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v42 n8 p846-866 Dec 2010
This paper plays with education through the analogy of karaoke to tease out the instructions of a situated educational practice. Here, Cremin's conceptualization of education as a deliberate, systematic and sustained effort is employed as a starting point to enable an understanding of educational practice between members elicited by karaoke. Using Garfinkel's ethnomethodological framework, the paper investigates modes of education through karaoke practice as part of the "live" narrative, that of instructing and being instructed with the "curriculum" of the event at hand.
