BERNARDES, Maria Eliza Mattosinho.   Teaching and learning as a dialectical unity in pedagogical activity. Psicol. esc. educ. [online]. 2009, vol.13, n.2, pp. 235-242. ISSN 1413-8557.

In order to consider pedagogical activity as dialectical unity one needs to investigate the conditions and circumstances of her/his work. One also needs to research on its specifications from the perspective of the historical dialectical materialism approach, the historical cultural psychology and the activity theory. It is believed that the correspondence among need and aims, actions and operations in the students and educators’ main activities create positive situations so that a conscious learning occurs. This fact depends on the educator’s and the student’s awareness of their ontological function in the teaching-learning process. It seems to be possible to conceive the dialectical unity. But it has to represent one of the conditions to overcoming the nowadays educational system. It is also necessary to conceive man´s activity as one which transforms the material and social world into a human world.
