Electronic Freire::  Electronic Freire: Technology in the Struggle for Peace? Introduction:  Introduction Freire as Educational Technologist?:  Freire as Educational Technologist? Freire is often hailed as a literacy educator, and a theorist of radical democracy and critical consciousness. Very little sustained work in Critical Pedagogy on Freire’s treatment of the politics of social development through technological modernization processes. Freire as Post-Colonial? Yes/No… Freire as Educational Technologist?:  Freire as Educational Technologist? Freire’s guiding project was cultural action for freedom  “humanization” of the oppressed. Culture of subjectivity Natural necessity Human self-reflection Non-human animal Consciousness Freire as Educational Technologist?:  Freire as Educational Technologist? In connection: What is “technology?” Commonly use the term as “industrial or electronic products” or “applied science” generally for “commercial objectives.” Originally, it means “systemization” in Greek and investigation of the root “é” reveals philosophical underpinnings of Freire’s project of cultural freedom. Freire as Educational Technologist?:  Freire as Educational Technologist? “é” (meaning “art” or “skill”) in Plato represents a teachable “cultural competence” as opposed to instinctive ability, “,” a term also meaning “nature” or “animal.” To be human means to produce technologies, which unfold as cultural choices and are not “necessary” (nature). Freire as Educational Technologist?:  Freire as Educational Technologist? In context of Oppressor vs. Oppressed: Extension or Communication - whether the extension of modern science and technology, exported to Chile (and other countries) as part of Northern agricultural development initiatives, has served more to educate or alienate the traditionally-based farming cultures of the Third World. Freire as Educational Technologist?:  Freire as Educational Technologist? Cultural Freedom Theory: Issue of “underdevelopment” is not one of capital accumulation but of self-empowerment. “Culture” from “cultus” -- to till, agricultural. “Educare” -- education as forced “cultivation” or “training” (vine or animals, children). “Educere” -- to develop that which is latent within (Socrates) for growth [kinder-garten]. Freire as Educational Technologist:  Freire as Educational Technologist Cultural Invasion Ethnotechnology and Dialogical Cultural Interactionism Freire on High-Technology:  Freire on High-Technology “The answer does not lie in the rejection of the machine but in the humanization of man.” I’m a “man of television” and “man of radio.” "It is not the media themselves which I criticize, but the way they are used." Freire on High-Technology:  Freire on High-Technology Freire on High-Technology:  Freire on High-Technology Freire on High-Technology:  Freire on High-Technology Freire on High-Technology:  Freire on High-Technology 1960’s National Literacy Programme: Buys 35,000 Polish slide projectors In 1973, $13/unit est. In 1981, $2.50/unit est. Rate of dollar has now increased six-fold. In 1962, Br. Real 4:1 rate of exchange. = A LOT OF MONEY!!! 1990’s Sec. of Ed for Sao Paulo: Established Central Laboratory for Educational Informatics Invested in “televisions, video cassettes, sound machines, slide projectors, tape recorders, and 825 micro-computers.” = A LOT OF MONEY!!! Freire on High-Technology:  Freire on High-Technology Early figure: Critical Media Literacy. Not technological determinist, aware of myth-making power of technology. Worried about global extension of hi-tech as science of the powerful few. Political problem best dealt with strategically by democratization of technology, institutional interventions, and conscientization of the less powerful. Information-Communication Technologies as Freirean Problems:  Information-Communication Technologies as Freirean Problems Issues of Environmental Justice Exploited labor - women, children, people of color Toxic - not “clean,” E-waste and heavy metals Coltan and fueling war and ecological destruction Primary engine driving globalization of capitalist economy & culture - largest & fastest manufacturing industry. Critiques of Esteva and Bowers Freire confined himself to “critical appropriation” of technologies. Freire’s own theory is an ICT of Western origin and as a result promotes pathways for colonization.
