  4. 4. <ul><li>Indicate a direction </li></ul><ul><li>Are ambiguos : there’s no only way to follow them </li></ul><ul><li>Obligatoriness, judgement and choice </li></ul>Rules:
  5. 5. <ul><li>Systems of organizing the information </li></ul><ul><li>(Deleuze and Guattari) </li></ul><ul><li>Rhizomatic : </li></ul><ul><li>Web page like </li></ul><ul><li>Passage along many alternate routes </li></ul><ul><li>No governing set of rules </li></ul><ul><li>Lateral organization </li></ul><ul><li>Criss-crossing pathways </li></ul><ul><li>Central : </li></ul><ul><li>Hierarchical </li></ul><ul><li>A root and branches </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Passage : (Sarah Kofman) </li></ul><ul><li>“ Odos”: connects knowns (fixed answer) </li></ul><ul><li>“ Poros”: chaotic expanse. There’s no trail – Unknown destination. </li></ul><ul><li>Recognition : </li></ul><ul><li>Make what is unfamiliar, familiar </li></ul><ul><li>Think again in a different way </li></ul><ul><li>(Plato) teaching is not giving true answers but drawing forth what is latently. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Dialectic process of learning </li></ul><ul><li>Help somebody find their way and make their choice. </li></ul><ul><li>Questions : teacher should know how to ask but in a way that the answer is interesting and important to all of us. </li></ul><ul><li>Join the learner in the process of exploration . </li></ul><ul><li>Aporia: generates the questions and problems that move us to seek new understandings. </li></ul>Role of the teacher:
  8. 8. <ul><li>Limits between a dream and reality . </li></ul><ul><li>Matrix : world that has been put before our eyes so that we cannot see the truth. </li></ul><ul><li>Choice (scene of the pills): stay in the Matrix (the known world) or go for the unknown world. Neo experiences the Aporia . </li></ul><ul><li>Plato’s Meno : a misconception is stripped away (The Matrix) -> reconstruction of true knowledge (real world) </li></ul>

  10. 11. <ul><li>Like the allegory of the Cave, The Matrix dramatically conveys the view that ordinary appearances do not depict true reality and that gaining the truth changes one’s life. Neo’s movements toward greater understanding nicely parallel the movements of the prisoner in the cave whose bonds are loosened. </li></ul>
  11. 12. <ul><li>The process of learning implies a series of choices to make. </li></ul><ul><li>The state of Aporia is puzzling but necessary to “go out the cave”, leave the “Matrix” or wake up and face the reality. </li></ul><ul><li>Teachers should know how to help others to choose, but not choose for them. </li></ul>
  12. 13. <ul><li>Burbules, Nicholas C.: “ Aporia: Webs, Passages, Getting Lost, and Learning to Go On” </li></ul><ul><li>“ Matrix ”, Warner Bros. </li></ul><ul><li>Calderon de la Barca: “ La vida es sueño” </li></ul><ul><li>Plato: “ Cave allegory” </li></ul>
