Item description for Learning as Cultural Practice: How children learn in a Mexican Mazahua community by Mariette De Ilaan & Mariette de Haan...
Our ideas on how children learn are based firmly in western concepts of learning and in particular those of formal schooling. Yet we present these ideas as if they were universal and adequate for characterizing learning processes in any cultural context.
The core of this book is a study of the learning and instruction practices of the Mazahua people in Mexico. The author uses a socio-cultural approach to debunk the concept of a 'universal learning process' and shows how such processes can be understood only by acknowledging the mutual influence of culture and learning.
