Critical Pedagogies, Web 2.0 and Interactive Phonics:
To Empower Adult ESL Literacy Classes
through Technological Mediation
By Sophie Wang, B. Eng., B. Sc., M.A.
Educators can teach either to reproduce the reality or to advocate for the oppressed and take actions to change the power relationship.
Web 2.0 offers a platform with the potential to create a more humanized teaching approach and empower both teachers and students.
Inspiration from critical pedagogies
Web 1.0 vs. Web 2.0
A lesson plan on "ch"
Situation in Adult ESL Literacy Classes
Powerless students: without lingua franca and literacy skills required for both life tasks and job market
Dis-powered teachers: lack of technology, research and resource support
Materials appropriate for adult ESL literacy need to be developed and made available for both the teachers and students
Web 2.0 platform has the potential to create a more humanized teaching approach and empower both parties
Web 1.0 Phonics Materials
Some are designed either for kids or illiterate adult native speakers
May not be contextualized to adult ESL learners' interests or not suitable for their proficiency
Would you consider trying out this lesson or some activities in your class?
What would be some of the barriers to apply a Web 2.0 lesson in your class/school?
Would it be possible for literacy students to "write" and participate Web 2.0 culture?

Web 2.0 Pedagogical Instruments
"Read-Write Web" (Berners-Lee, 2005)
A problem-posing education through dialogue between teachers and students where they “[co]-develop[s] their power to perceive critically the way they exist in the world with which and in which they find themselves while they come to see the world not as a static reality, but as a reality in progress, in transformation” (Freire, 1970, p. 64).
