Xie, Hui – Education and Culture, 2020
In light of decades of formal denouncement of Deweyan ideas in China and the increasingly authoritarian practices under its current leadership, the recent revival of engagement with Dewey's work among Chinese educators and intellectuals appears extraordinary as well as paradoxical. How is it possible that a project as ardently democratic as…

Li, Weisheng – Education and Culture, 2020
In this essay, we focus on how Chinese students' experience emerged and evolved in the educational activities of the twenty-first century, one hundred years after John Dewey's visit to China. With the help of a case study, I find that (1) the individual's experience is lived and understood in combination with others' lives; (2) democratic dialogue…

Bu, Yuhua; Zu, Yuanyuan – Education and Culture, 2020
Between 1919-1920, while giving a series of speeches in China, John Dewey raised a doubt about Chinese education: Can Chinese education cultivate children with independent consciousness? Based on the sevenyear "Reciprocal Learning in Teacher Education and School Education between Canada and China" project, we have the answer to Dewey's…

Stengel, Barbara – Education and Culture, 2020
John Dewey went to China in 1919 and stayed for more than two years. He watched and learned. He wrote and spoke volumes both while he was there and after he returned. One hundred years later, we are unsurprisingly interested in whether Dewey's time in China left a trace.

Stroud, Scott R. – Education and Culture, 2018
This article explores the contours of the Indian pragmatist Bhimrao Ambedkar and his reconstruction of Buddhism in the 1950s. As a student of John Dewey at Columbia University, young Ambedkar was heavily influenced by the pragmatist ideas of democracy and reconstruction. Throughout his life he would continue to evoke Dewey's words and ideas in his…

Misco, Thomas – Education and Culture, 2014
This paper focuses on the primary problem of the public, as advanced in "The Public and its Problems," which Dewey described as the need to improve "methods of debate, discussion, and persuasion" for the purposes of "perfecting the process of inquiry" (Dewey, 1927/1954, p. 208). I first situate these modes of…

Goura, Tairou; Seltzer-Kelly, Deborah L. – Education and Culture, 2013
The Republic of Togo, like many African former colonies, has struggled to create a system of vocational education that will aid its efforts to move beyond the status of a satellite to Western economies. We incorporate postcolonial, Deweyan and feminist perspectives to understand how lingering colonialism and neo-colonial forces have hampered…

Rodriguez, Victor J. – Education and Culture, 2013
From 1915 to 1923, the pedagogy of John Dewey became an important pillar of anarchist and socialist projects of education in Mexico. These radical experiments were based on the belief in an open-ended world amenable to the intervention of a new subject of modernity whose unconstrained operations created rather than disrupted social order.…

Bullert, Gary B. – Education and Culture, 2013
Among the most controversial aspects of John Dewey's career as a public intellectual was his conflict with the Communist Party and its various front groups. John Dewey and Sidney Hook co-founded the Committee for Cultural Freedom that directly exposed that pretense of the Popular Front, which excluded the Soviet Union from the list of totalitarian…

Thayer-Bacon, Barbara – Education and Culture, 2012
I explore Montessori's story in terms of her initial warm reception by America to her educational research, and her later cooling off, once Dewey's student, Kilpatrick, published The Montessori System Examined and declared her work to be based on psychological theory that was fifty years behind the times. I argue that there is a troubling gendered…

Dorn, Charles; Santoro, Doris A. – Education and Culture, 2011
Most historical scholarship on John Dewey's 1924 educational mission to Turkey has focused on the degree to which the educator and philosopher's recommendations were actually implemented. By bringing the disciplinary lenses of history and philosophy to bear on Dewey's mission, this collaborative study differs from previous work by illuminating the…

This Eurydice report sheds light on two different but complementary perspectives of digital education: the development of digital competences relevant to learners and teachers on the one hand, and the pedagogical use of technologies to support, improve and transform learning and teaching on the other. The report covers different areas of digital…
