The concept of liberation of Education Paulo Freire and ekoeducation




ekoeducation, liberation education, educational systems, metaphor


In the article analyzes the metaphor of Paulo Freire's "banking" education model, which demonstrates the shortcomings prevailing oppressive, narrative (narrative) tedious educational system and uncreative, uncritical, mechanical learning, which is opposed to the concept of liberation education and formation critical consciousness.

The fundamental difference liberation of problem oriented education is that it is based on activities rather than on mechanical information transfer, and object of knowledge acts as a mediator between teacher and student. The efforts of both (teacher and student) aimed to study the object of knowledge, providing interaction and therefore dialogue on both sides.

To develop the concept of environmental education, there is important thesis that the problem-oriented method is always "cognitive" and aimed at building critical thinking to understand the situation and the ability to navigate and act in it, and therefore directly relevant to the conservation of nature, life and health of people.
