How to propose an education that makes the individual more autonomous and at the same time allows him to contribute to the construction of a more just and egalitarian society?
It is this question that our pedagogical director, Dr. Edivanda Mugrabi, tried to answer through her recently published book "Theory and Practice of Text Pedagogy. For a school that transforms and is transformed”. Over the past 30 years, Edivanda, as a Doctor of Educational Science at the University of Geneva, has been involved in many educational experiences and research in the field. These have led to an educational approach that promotes the implementation of better quality education around the world.
The book "Theory and Practice of Text Pedagogy. For a school that transforms and is transformed" is the result of this work.It provides answers to the questions of many institutions and educators concerned with improving the quality of education and who wanted to know more about the pedagogical approach promoted by EdM. In this sense, this book is an introduction to the "Pedagogy of Text" approach for teachers, trainers and others involved in education systems. It presents theoretical and pedagogical elements of implementation of the pedagogical approach so that they can, by themselves, initiate profound changes aimed at lastingly improving the quality of education and thus the future prospects of learners and students in their country.
At the official release of her book on April 30th at the University of San Carlos in Guatemala, Edivanda told USAC TV: "This book is the result of several years of work here in Guatemala but also in other countries of the world. It brings together ideas and practices favoring the implementation of the "Pedagogy of Text" approach. It is intended for teachers and trainers with the aim of accompanying them in their educational work and school renovation. My dearest wish is that this book can contribute to bringing about changes in Guatemala's education system. This is to allow all the children of the country, and especially those of Mayan mother tongue, to emancipate themselves by developing their bilingual and intercultural abilities."
