Inclusion: The End of the Beginning?
Event pedagogy in the zone of proximate development
It is important not only to look at the outer world, but also to learn to see the inner invisible growth. The meaning of our inner invisible being is revealed to us instantly, when we find it in the outer world. It becomes an event.
We cannot plan events, we cannot make them, we are not the actors of events. Events are like lightning. Currently, unique, unexpected, plausible. We can only be astonished. The existing system of order becomes fragile for a moment. Nothing is the same as before. It is the leap into another reality. Domination and oppression dissolve in the clear deep water of shared meaning between teacher and student like salt and sugar.
So charged with mutual recognition, collide teacher and student with force against the ruling system. This collision releases the energy of the event, which just a moment ago was locked up in the state of petrified self-evidence. Mutual recognition between teachers and students at school changes a mindless desolate desert into an imaginative blooming Garden of Eden.
A power relationship becomes a relationship of meaning.
