Abstract

During the Spanish Second Republican government (April 1931-July 1939), there was an institutional initiative in the country called "Misiones Pedagogicas", deeply based in the early Deweyan conception of Progressive Education. The aim of this project was bringing access to culture, entertainment and some sort of progress to rural areas by using media artefacts available at the time, though also representing a far-reaching attempt at social and cultural regeneration of the country.
