‘Emotional skills, pedagogical-didactic perspectives with schools’

Make sure to what extent the teacher’s education and emotions have entered the professional profile of the teacher in everyday school practice. This is the goal of the day of study and workshops dedicated to the “Educational / Didactic Perspectives of Emotional Skills” organized by the University of Udine on Friday, May 20, from 9, in the Sgorlon Auditorium of the University’s Training Center, and via Margreth 3 at Udine.

Attention to the subject of emotional competences arises from the awareness that school is a growth context in which children, from the earliest school years onwards, learn to understand and manage their own and other emotions, cooperate and share. However, not all children have the same skills and need learning paths. Therefore, the need for a theoretical-practical focus, particularly on teachers, is fostered by the one-cycle master’s course in primary school sciences of the Department of Languages ​​and Literature, Communication, Education and Society (Dill).

“In the early 1990s – explains the university delegate for students, Daniele Fedeli – there was a profound change in the way we view emotions in school: from a disruptive factor to an engine of learning processes. And socialization .Three decades later, the aim is now to verify, to what extent, education has entered into and with emotions the professional profile of the teacher in everyday school practice.

The day will be greeted by the Rector Roberto Pinton; the director of the department, Fabiana Fusco, and the representative of the regional school office, Fabiano Paio. The works are presented by Francesca Zanon and Andrea Guaran.

The meeting is divided in the morning into a conference, which is characterized by the presence of four speakers who analyze emotional skills from different perspectives. Lucio Cottini, from the University of Urbino, will talk about “Emotions and Inclusion”; Daniele Fedeli, from Udine University, analyzes “Emotional skills in the professional profile of teachers”; Pier Giuseppe Rossi, of the University of Macerata, will take stock of “Enactive Learning Between Mind and Body”; Stefano Cacciamani, of the University of Valle D’Aosta, will address “Blended Learning and Epistemic Activation of Students”.

At 12.45 pm, students will present in the Auditorium’s workshop the work done in the laboratories of the primary school, on aspects that are relevant to the topics of the conference. The afternoon will be divided into two sessions, with six practical workshops useful for reflecting on how to manage emotional skills in the classroom.

“Well because – explains the course coordinator, Francesca Zanon – as also specified in a passage from the essay, A Blueprint for the Promotion of Academic and Social Competence and After-School Programs, of 2009,” We can not expect a child in the algebra is successful. If he is still learning addition and subtraction, in the same way we can not expect a child to show empathy towards colleagues when he has not yet learned to identify and articulate different emotions.

The first three workshops start at 2.30 pm and have the following themes: “Learning stories. Observe and document cognitive and emotional processes in school “(Room 7);” Emotions in verse, poetry and disciplinary transversality “(Room 17);” Emotional skills in school: let’s start with and by teachers! “(Room 18).

The topics of the other three workshops, starting at 4.30 pm: “Socio-emotional Technologies” (Room 1); “Emotional Impact of DAD” (Room 2); “Sharing the Participatory Interview: Teacher-Parent-Student as an Instrument of the Pedagogical Alliance” (Room 5).
