Paulo Reglus Neves Freire was born in Recife in
1921, the capital of Brazil’s northeast province.
Through all his life, he developed the fundamentals of
a teaching method with special characteristics. The
fundamentals of his ‘method’ point to an educational
process that focuses on the student environment.
Freire assumes that the students world is the starting
point of the process, because that is the world the
students understand.
abcNet is a web-based application which seeks the
goals of learning how to read and write, following
Paulo Freire’s methodology.
