Educational Theory and Pedagogy
The word, "pedagogy" refers to art of teaching and the approach or strategies used in teaching.
The ultimate goal of Education for Justice is a metanoia, a fundamental and ongoing conversion of the spirit. The 1971 Justice in the World document from the Synod of Bishops declares that "education demands a renewal of the heart." If education for justice is really to be a transformational and ongoing conversion of the spirit, information sharing is only a part of a wider process.
