RITE Education founder & managing director, Ms Elmarié Potgieter, will be a panellist at the "Democratic Values and Education" session on 10 December.
Elmarié will be speaking on "Promoting Social Cohesion and Democracy Through Education". She applies Jensen's framework of social cohesion (Jensen, J., 1998) to the education sector, advocating five characteristics - a sense of belonging, inclusion, participation, recognition and legitimacy. She relates her extensive experience in education transformation in developing countries to how collaborative learning structures encourages meaningful engagement amongst learners and nurtures shared values.
Elmarié also draws upon effective differentiation practices and localisation of curricula as drivers of relevancy and equality in teaching and learning. She promotes the development of critical thinking through inquiry-based practices as fundamental towards cultivating open-minded social attitudes through everyday experiences. Finally, she champions partnerships within the communal ecosystem, which offer vast opportunities for mutual respect, tolerance and ultimately the practice of democracy to be fostered.
