It has been talked about incessantly and with an extraordinary attention to the worst scenarios, but very little - if not some isolated voice - has highlighted the risk and the damage of the closure on the development processes of boys and girls. For boys and girls and teenagers whose social life has been completely disrupted, we know that the consequences will be there and are worrying. The emotional and cognitive fragility typical of the developmental age, deprived of the relational dimension, forced to limitations in space-time, inserted into forced dynamics within the family nucleus, subjected to the cessation and cessation of any activity proper to routines and commitments functional to growth, is now at risk of many reactions. In this context, the school experimented with an unusual form of teaching, but there may be some very important innovative elements to be taken into account</p> 2020-07-03T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Maria Rita Mancaniello https://oajournals.fupress.net/index.php/sf/article/view/11825 L’emergenza Covid-19 tra comunicazione e formazione 2020-07-07T08:25:45+00:00 Cosimo Di Bari cosimo.dibari@unifi.it <p>The global spread of the Covid-19 Virus has generated a cultural earthquake, that has healty, economical, professional, social consequences.

These changes are not always perceived by our universities, which still have a large disciplinary and academic fragmentation. Most students continue to specialize in a single sector while innovation in the labour market requires a development of soft skills that goes beyond the disciplines.

Della fiaba, inoltre, lo scrittore evidenzia la specificità educativa, non rintracciabile nel contenuto, o meglio, non soltanto, ma soprattutto nel solo fatto di sentirle raccontare e di raccontarle. La fiaba è forse il genere che resta dominante, anche all’interno dei diversi generi attraversati da Calvino: essa suscita il suo interesse sia per la rispondenza con la sua vena fantastica che appare evidente fin dal <em>Sentiero</em>, sia per gli studi degli strutturalisti, Propp e Greimas in particolare. L’articolo intende così rileggere la figura di Calvino attraverso queste due componenti, fiabesco da un lato e strutturalismo dall’altro, provando a evidenziare come l’immersione nei territori del fiabesco, con la pubblicazione delle <em>Fiabe italiane</em>, abbiano in qualche modo “contaminato” la sua scrittura successiva, alimentando quella vena fantastica che l’ha sempre caratterizzata, fino a quelle opere più marcatamente legate all’adesione allo strutturalismo e alla semiologia.</p> 2020-07-05T14:22:41+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Susanna Barsotti https://oajournals.fupress.net/index.php/sf/article/view/11546 La scuola come laboratorio di accoglienza.

The setting of the island of Lampedusa and Rosi’s characters are symbolically used to reflect on the human tragedy in the Mediterranean Sea and question its relational outcomes on an existential level: meetings, clashes, rejection, indifference, recognition, care. This research aims to provide a double reading of this filmic narration by taking into account the dialogical relation between representation and ethics. The film is interpreted through the lens of children’s literature and of collective imagery analysis, thus exploring its narrative dimension from the point of view of philosophy of education and its axiological reflections.</span></p> 2020-07-05T14:34:31+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Gabriele Brancaleoni, Paolo Bonafede https://oajournals.fupress.net/index.php/sf/article/view/11018 School, Hygienic care and education. The contribution of Achille Sclavo 2020-07-07T08:25:40+00:00 Giambattista Bufalino bufalino.giambattista@unict.it <p>In the late nineteenth and early decades of the twentieth century, a firm alliance between hygiene and education has been promoted as an important means of developing health in childhood. Hygienists, social reformers and educators were the main impetus for the development of a hygienic awareness while the school was at the center of the so-called pedagogisation of the body, that is a systematic educational action aimed at educating the body. Within this context, this article centers on the pedagogical efforts of Achille Sclavo (1861-1930), an internationally renowned hygienist, with the aims of reconstructing his pedagogy and educational work, thus discussing his views on hygienic education which were indicative of attitudes, beliefs, and ideas of his time. This is an attempt to shed light on an unknown aspect of his life and to offer an original perspective from which to explore the link between hygienic education and educational innovation.</p> 2020-07-05T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Giambattista Bufalino https://oajournals.fupress.net/index.php/sf/article/view/11218 Teaching Narrative Structures to Students majoring in Pre-School and Primary Education 2020-07-07T08:25:14+00:00 Mireia Canals-Botines mireia.canals@uvic.cat <p>In the context of teaching English as a second language to young and very young learners, future teachers need to find indirect ways to teach.

Starting from the analysis of the legal aspects that characterize schools which are offically recognized and those which are not according to the Italian legal system, the paper also considers the pedagogical and didactic implications linked to the establishment of a “mixed system” in which several, individual and institutional, public and private, bodies are responsible for the education and training of the younger generations. This plurality of bodies poses the need to ensure the same degree of effectiveness and efficiency of the school service to the entire education system, by identifying well-defined organization performances and learning results, in full respect of cultural, pedagogical, philosophical and confessional differences connected to the various school models existing today.</p> 2020-07-05T14:49:38+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Davide Capperucci https://oajournals.fupress.net/index.php/sf/article/view/10699 Negotiating epistemic authority in parent-teacher conferences: non-native parents reclaiming agency against the backdrop of linguistic and cultural differences 2020-07-07T08:25:09+00:00 Chiara Dalledonne Vandini chiara.dalledonne2@unibo.it Davide Cino d.cino1@campus.unimib.it <p>In this paper we analyze the degree of participation, epistemic management, and authority performance during Parent-Teacher Conferences with non-native parents. Studies focusing on ethnic minority communities illustrate the dominance of the teacher’s epistemic authority (see Lareau and Weininger, 2003; Garcia-Sanchez and Orellana, 2007).&nbsp; Describing differences in mastering both the expert and the institutional knowledge, Howard and Lipinoga (2010) illustrate how immigrated parents remain relatively silent during the report phase of the encounter. This paper reports data from eight parent-teacher conferences with non-native parents. We show how parents’ practices to accomplish and receive assessment confirm in part what has already been identified by the literature, but also adds new communicative “nuances”. We contend that also non-native parents could be able to challenge the teachers’ authority by questioning them and making the information from their territory of knowledge (i.e. the “child-at-home”) relevant. We advance that a detailed analysis of how the management of knowledge and the negotiation of epistemic authority occur in parent-teacher conferences will also help in critically rethinking some “pedagogical certainties” concerning school-family communication and their possible outcomes.</p> 2020-07-05T14:52:29+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Chiara Dalledonne Vandini, Davide Cino https://oajournals.fupress.net/index.php/sf/article/view/11780 Ordine e disordine: un’apparente antinomia nell’educazione motoria e sportiva.

Jiu-Jitsu (guidance), the ancestor of Jiu-Jitsu, is the technique used by Samurai at the last moment. They demonstrate that drinking is inefficient when losing weapons at close range and enemy opponents. Berries and clicks are more effective for survival. Jiu-Jitsu, now famous around the world, was shown in Brazil by Mitsuyo Maeda (Conde Koma) in Japan. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu moves to a position that is advantageous for his bare hands and uses opponents and cookers to control the opponent. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has the advantage that small people can beat large ones. Adjust the ground technology such as moderating, strangling, and clicking to use the technology more efficiently than defeat with power. It has been established that jiu-jitsu can be useful for martial arts and self-defense techniques as time goes by, but few papers have spelled it out, especially in Korea. Also, many Jiu-Jitsu stands in Korea and claim that the best way of raising their organization is the best, and many Jiu-Jitsu practitioners in South Korea teach from the Jiu-Jitsu teaching method Was given a one-sided training.

Dewey believed that it is not correct to trust that any authentic education comes automatically from experience and that all experiences are genuinely or equally educational. In this theoretical context, even videogames, like other media, could contribute to generate a positive experience “flow" in a learner, if and only if, videogames contribute to play a definable didactic-educational experience. Similarly, it is not enough for gamers to play videogames to increase skills in terms of media education or education technology. This work tries to identify characteristics that videogames should have to aim teaching-learning process.</div> 2020-07-05T20:38:47+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Giuseppe De Simone, Michele Domenico Todino, Stefano Di Tore https://oajournals.fupress.net/index.php/sf/article/view/11782 Cultura ed educazione nel secondo dopoguerra. L’esempio de «Il Politecnico» 2020-07-07T08:24:54+00:00 Giovambattista Trebisacce gbtrebisacce@icloud.com <p>This article intends to propose a pedagogical reading of Italian culture post-WWII period, through the usage of the Marxist categories “ideology” and “praxis”. The Italian Resistance, a demotic movement aimed at building the new Italy from scratch, is a clear example of “praxis pedagogy”, in which theory and practice coexhist, fulfilling one another. The end of the Resistance’s spirit and the beginning of a national Reconstruction policy produce the return to old values, bringing out an ideological, conformistic and adaptive pedagogy, of which the stance of Vittorini’s magazine “Il Politecnico” and the largest part of the Italian cultural environment of the time are the most significant example.</p> 2020-07-05T20:37:19+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Giovambattista Trebisacce https://oajournals.fupress.net/index.php/sf/article/view/11828 Rileggendo i Minima moralia a cinquantun anni dalla scomparsa di Adorno.

Since 1962, the Wall started to take on a role of a different way of thinking, in both East and West, because it expresses an overcoming of the “two Europes”, and of the growth of&nbsp; a new and dialectical perspective between the two different visions of values: theoretical pedagogy had been a relevant interpreter in building this dialogue.</p> 2020-07-05T20:47:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Franco Cambi https://oajournals.fupress.net/index.php/sf/article/view/11830 Recensioni 2020-07-07T08:24:48+00:00 Cosimo Di Bari cosimo.dibari@unifi.it 2020-07-05T20:47:42+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020
