EDUCATION: FOR WHAT WORLDS?

Álvaro Laborinho Lúcio, Ariana Furtado, Gabriela Trevisan

The emergence of the pandemic that we are currently passing through placed the school in a limit situation where, technologically connected but potentially isolated, the educational and family community felt the difficulty of an education in which human relations are conducted through a screen. Since education is not just a question of obeying metrics or transmitting material, this experience requires all of us to engage in a careful reflection about education as a fundamental process for determining the fabric of human societies. And it is on the basis of this understanding that this encounter will take place between the writer and jurist Álvaro Laborinho Lúcio, the teacher and coordinator of primary education at the Escola Básica do Castelo, Ariana Furtado, and the researcher Gabriela Trevisan. Among other topics, we will talk about citizenship, collaboration between formal and informal processes of education, inclusion and alterity, but also about emotions, bodies and empathy. Because education is always an act of connection and sharing, and of the gestation of the worlds that we have in common.
