Project Details


In this investigation we start with the question: what is being done within this educational institution to give way to the changes that the educational context demands in the colombian context regarding interculturality and school coexistence? that is to say, to analyze if interculturality is inserted in the educational program and as this ethno-educative center develops, also intercultural activities are not carried out in a punctual and isolated way in some subjects. in addition we start from the secondary questions:how are the teachers being trained today? what are the implications of the implementation of intercultural and ethnic pedagogies as tools for the eradication of racism and racial discrimination against children of african descent in education? through intercultural and ethnic pedagogies in education can teachers re-position knowledge and social, cultural, linguistic practices as valid and significant knowledge in teaching and learning? how to position pedagogical ethno-educational perspectives in the education scenarios, as well as in the training of teachers? instruments: for the exercise of inquiry and analysis will be implemented tools for research as direct observation, interviews with teachers, the direction of the educational establishment.but we will also apply visual anthropology as a participatory means of research within the educational establishment for our analysis.
