    Pandemic Phase: Where's Democracy Now?Andrea Bennett-Kinne - 2022 - Education and Culture 37 (2):60-79.
    Abstract:This essay draws from a pragmatic feminist approach. It outlines the importance of relational ethics and Deweyan democracy to educational practices using the exploitative situation of emergency remote learning and women teachers to show the impact of systems that were in place before the COVID-19 pandemic, but which have become more concerning within those parameters. Such systems include the educational technology industry and the datafication of education. These systems rest in neoliberalism and concern their means and ends with economic gain (...)

    How to Teach Machines in Artificial Intelligence: Technical Education in John Dewey, Gilbert Simondon, and Machine Learning.Olivier Del Fabbro - 2022 - Education and Culture 37 (2):24-41.
    Abstract:A society that uses drills and conditioning to train its machine learning models risks creating an alienated situation between human and machine in social life, as these teaching methods generate a lack of responsibility for the actions produced by such machines. Both John Dewey and Gilbert Simondon present conceptions and ideas that shed a different light on such alienated human–machine relationships in machine learning: that is, a critique of mere drilling and training as an educational method; the mode of existence (...)

    Responsible Imagineering: John Dewey's Pluralistic Ethics and Technological Innovation.John A. Machielsen - 2022 - Education and Culture 37 (2):4-23.
    Abstract:I argue for taking John Dewey's pluralistic ethics as a starting point, or embedded practice, from and in which technological innovations are conceptualized, critiqued, designed, tested, and eventually implemented. Dewey reconstructs human reason into operational intelligence where all behavior becomes gradually imaginative. I take Dewey's view of moral deliberation as a basis for a responsible process-based methodology combining creative technological design with the training of imaginative prospection. I further use Dewey's conception of technology that holds that implements, but also ideas (...)

    Feminist-Pragmatist Perspectives on Online Education: Challenging and Changing Online Educational Conversation.Krissah Marga B. Taganas - 2022 - Education and Culture 37 (2):42-59.
    Abstract:This paper is exploratory in a sense: I explore the possibility of feminist pragmatism as a pedagogical position compatible with online education. I argue in this paper that feminist pragmatism (FP) can be an important philosophic resource to continually challenge and change the online educational conversation. Contemporary feminist pragmatism is a conscious effort of women philosophers who took inspiration from the works of major women pragmatist thinkers, as well as others, especially John Dewey. Early women pragmatists developed a fruitful collegial (...)
