Faces of Postmodern Education. Educational Challenges in a Culture of Participation

Monika Miczka-Pajestka


The educational processes themselves, as well as images of a teacher in the learning space, constantly change and get modified under the influence of a variety of phenomena taking place in the culture. This mainly applies to institutional activities, supported by various system training models and methods, but also to the direct relationship between a teacher and a student. The article points therefore that such processes occurring at the same time in the culture as: hybridization, fragmentation, multi-culture, virtualization or common life technical improvement comply with so called auto telic education and various forms of non-formal education. There will be undertaken the issue of acquisition of participation in culture competences, and then the attention will be put on educational priorities, adopted within the framework of the European Union, which can be analyzed in a variety of perspectives. However, just like the whole culture, they combine with effects of the so-called "meeting" or "mixing" of various spheres of postmodernism, which is a challenge for a man itself. The article will also attempt to answer, among other, the questions: How does the idea of direct teaching enter it? What challenges appear in the education facing the culture of participation, in the world of complex cultural phenomena? And what are the possibilities and prospects of teaching the Net Society?
