11:00 AM, Mercredi 30 Août 2017 (1 heure)
Most of the public education in Mexico follow an “assembly line” model that does not foster the development of agency in children authentically. This is because schools do not recognize the conceptual existence of agency, and, as a consequence, many of the children´s opinions are silenced or not taken into account. The lack of investigation regarding agency in kids in relation to learning processes is largely due to this. There are a number of definitions and applications of agency. Agency is recognized as a sociocultural concept because it occurs when in interaction with others and is situated in a determined time and space. The research consists in observing moments in which the children’s agency becomes evident during a non-school and socioculturally situated workshop. The results obtained from the investigation show that children can have a transformative ability, that agency is a gradual process and that this can have a profound impact on Mexican culture and society.
