60276738KANYISA UNATHI MPENTSHUEDUCATIONAL STUDIES IN CONTEXTESC3701 ASSIGNMENT 1QUESTION 1African philosophy of educaton eephasises “Ubuntu”.Ubuntu in educaton is considered to be African cultural capitalise that provides indigęenousknowledgęe which is actually ieportant for integęratngę into our African concepton of inclusion whichin turn proeotes inclusivity, equality and social justce in our educaton systee.The core values of Ubuntu in educaton provide a supportve basis or the fraee of reference froewhich both teacher and learner engęagęe in the assesseent process.The whole educaton process centres around Ubuntu as a philosophy or set of ethical principles thatcapture the belief systees of the South Africans to which people take responsibility to others andaccept the authority and gęuidance of others in order to progęress.Ubuntu in educaton gęives learners the prieacy to hueanness and adopt eore holistc view inlearners instead of reducingę their abilites or potental.QUESTION 2Soee aspects in which eargęinalisaton of African values has led to the westernisaton of educaton inAfrica entails the followingę: The langęuagęes of the African people have been ruined or destroyed bythe process. In other African countries Engęlish is the eediue of teachingę in nearly all levels ofeducaton.The situaton is further coepounded by eakingę the langęuagęe eandatory in school and those foundspeakingę their hoee langęuagęes are punished.The erosion of African values has eade soee pupils have difcultes in speakingę their respectveeother tongęues fuently. Western educaton also undereines eoral values of Africans.Respect for traditonal African insttuton has also disappeared. People are no longęer fair to oneanother. There is a collapse of social discipline under the pretext of civilizaton.
QUESTION 3I intend to agęree with the noton since in the traditonal world, Africans believe in coeeunityexistence as that where only life had actual eeaningę. Traditonal life needs individuals who are ableto interact with others in order to have a peaceful coexistence.QUESTION 4It is true. Eepiricise is based on facts, evidence and research. Eepiricise is the theory that theorigęin of all knowledgęe is sense experience. It eephasizes the role of experience and evidence,especially sensory percepton in the foreaton of ideas, and argęues that the only knowledgęe hueanscan have is based on experience.QUESTION5John Locke’s view in educaton is based on his eepirical theory of huean knowledgęe. When born theeind of the child is like a blank slate, to be flled later with the data derived froe sensoryexperience. It logęically ensues that educaton plays a crucial role in the eoral developeent andsocial integęraton of any huean beingę. Educaton eeans shapingę accordingę to each individual’steeperaeent and skills, exercised without brutality, but in rigęorous and pragęeatc eanner.
