The workshop proposes to put into perspective and compare non-school educational inputs – related to family, neighborhood or village contextual relations, for example – with what children or adolescents experience at school. Taking into account relied relational modes and transmission systems, the presentations will describe practices included in their social anchoring and implications, and in their links to different value systems. The attention of the presenters can thus focus on the non-formal and formal aspects of the learning process studied, as well as on the intergenerational complementarity and/or opposition between the different types of age groups.
The aim of the research is to reflect on and better understand the nature of relational modes and reference values that intervene according to different perspectives (school / non-school, in particular). The approach is taking into account the endogenous “reproduction” effect of social classes described by Pierre Bourdieu in the 70’s and 80’s, and Jack Goody's work on the tendency of “identical reproduction” in written tradition societies in the 80’s and the 90’s, while taking distances and refining their analysis at the same time through actual case studies. The stakes are those of a better understanding of the relation to time, space, knowledge and social relationship that comes into play in each of the different perspectives. An “ecological” understanding of the social environment according to the constraint character (or not) of the involved relation is expected to be brought to light.
