Cosmopolitanism, citizenship, and education through the lens of John Dewey

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review

Abstract

This chapter analyses the challenge of educating students in and for a cosmopolitan world. I argue that since students live in a cosmopolitan reality, educational institutions could address productively this challenge by using the everyday experiences of students as a starting point and an input for pedagogic action. I explore Dewey’s notions of democracy and experience and reflect upon their implications for the development of pedagogies aimed at the education of young people for living together in a hyperconnected world.
