EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITY AS RESEARCH CATEGORY. IN SEARCH OF MEANING
Languages of publication
I assume that educational activity is a constant element of educational environment, interpreted both in a physical and symbolic dimension. I am going to make an analysis of the notion of ”educational activity”, presenting a thesis that it is a type of research category the application of which has the power to create meanings, so that it is possible to form around it a theory of educational practice. I would also like to highlight the fact that I interpret the chosen notional category in two ways. The notion has got a definite meaning, it is a theoretical category but also a linguistic representation of a definite fragment of educational reality, which meaning is especially important for pedagogy as empirical science because of its constitutive relation between theory and practice. Pedagogy is understood here as a field of knowledge exploring and designing educational processes. Thus the suggested consideration focuses on the reflection about the basics of theoretical nature of pedagogy. It is an attempt to answer some questions about the nature of educational thought, its relation to pedagogical practice, as well as philosophical background and possible ways of theory construction.
