Disruptive Education School

Disruptive pedagogy for a new world

The Disruptive Education School (EED) is a proposal from Fundación Telefónica for everyone interested in constructing different education. Nowadays, we hear constant debates and reference to the obsolescence of the current education system, along with the need to reform methods and contents. As a result of this, the EED was conceived with the aim of creating a space of reflection, where active teachers, students and researchers had the tools needed to put a change of paradigm into practice.

The most recent items addressed by the project in 2016 are:

  • Taking Knowledge Out for a Walk. Education and City
  • To Climb on Stage
  • Green Education. The Challenges of Ecology in the XXIst Century Education

The issues addressed in the 2015 edition of the Disruptive Education School have been:

  • Corporal pedagogy: we do not think with the head, but with the body.
  • From Rubens to Damien Hirts: contemporary art as an educational tool.
  • Coming out of the closet: queer pedagogy and other forms of approaching identity in formal educational contexts.
  • (dis)ABILITIES: How to integrate people with special abilities in the classroom?
  • From the textbook to Youtube, through Cinexin: audiovisual language as a communication tool in the classroom.

During Saturdays we have work on the basic concepts of Disruptive Education, from contents and format. This means that each session has been designed as an event with expert speakers in which audience participation is fundamental. Avoiding the model of master classes, each session is designed to break away from the format and demonstrate in practice how knowledge can only be formed through active participation both of speakers and the audience.
