CEGUEIRA: CONCEPÇÕES DE APRENDIZAGEM E DE ENSINO REVELADAS EM ARTIGOS PUBLICADOS NA REVISTA BENJAMIN CONSTANT

BLINDNESS: CONCEPTIONS OF TEACHING AND LEARNING REVEALED IN ARTICLES PUBLISHED IN THE BENJAMIN CONSTANT JOURNAL.

Katia Regina Moreno CAIADO

ABSTRACT: The aim of this study was to discuss the conceptions of educational practices with blind students. Nine articles published in the Benjamin Constant Journal from September, 1995 through December, 2000 were analyzed as to: How does the blind child acquire knowledge about the world? What role does the teacher play? What are the teacher’s educational objectives? What is the role of language in this process? The results reveal that the epistemological paradigm that supports the discussion about educational practices with blind students is founded on rationalism. We establish how important it is that teachers publish reports on their pedagogical experiences with blind students because it will surely contribute to the preparation of future educators as well as to the discussion of blind persons education.
