Palavras-chave:transformation, urban education, critical collaboration
The world is experiencing a particularly tense moment which asks for a
project that goes beyond the limiting situations posed by immediate reality.
This condition considers the critical immersion of individuals in their
known realities and broad emersion in multiple contexts of understanding,
which may broaden their horizons of perception. Vygotsky and recent
followers offer us a basis for rethinking our reality in a collaborative and
critical search for forms of development beyond who we are. This article
brings about projects developed with schools from very poor and wealthy
communities of São Paulo, where participants act together to transform
their life conditions.
