  1. Learner developed materials : an empowering product.

    Article - En anglais

    Freire used very specific materials in culture circles to support an empowering process that allowed learners to define the content and outcome of their own learning.

    However, the materials themselves were carefully crafted and developed by Freire and his co-workers.

    This article focuses on an extension of Freire's problem-posing educational methods to include participant involvement in the development and production of their own learning materials.

    Four linked case examples, one in literacy and three in health education, illustrate the process of participatory materials development and we discuss some issues for facilitators and learners.

    The production process can be an empowering experience and the product stands as testimony to the participants as self-conscious agents and critical thinkers capable of transforming their world.
