SCIENZ @ SCHOOL / What slides do not say

The use of slip there is currently a very widespread learning practice in the school. The author looks at both the experience of the teacher who conceives, constructs and uses it as the main tool for communication with students and the experience of the student who observes, listens and studies to learn. It then analyzes the many problematic aspects that arise from this form of teaching regarding the loss of orality in the teacher-student relationship. “Orality, personal relationship and time” are the constitutive factors of the narrative, a fundamental and indispensable experience for the teachers thanks to the cognitive and pedagogical values ​​involved.

This contribution is intended to further the reflection that has begun on it The ontological seriousness of the lessonfocuses on one of the issues that has arisen in some intensive dialogues with the editors and various staff of the magazine.

Here I can not go into detail in these processes, for the reconstruction of which I refer to the extensive literature2. I will confine myself to highlighting the main implications they have for understanding and practicing ways to learn and practice:

The progressive shift of educational work in schools towards competence-centered learning inevitably reflects on teaching methodologies. The term “laboratory teaching” summarizes a number of methodological proposals, which are oriented towards the active construction of the student’s own learning, in accordance with the recent orientations of psycho-pedagogical research. Borrowing an internationally established expression, we can summarize the key attributes of the socioconstructivist paradigm with the expression CSSC learning (De Corte, 2000), to summarize the characteristics that distinguish it: constructive (constructive), self-regulated (self-regulated), lies (lies) a collaborative (collaborative) “3.

A critical reflection on this evolution, on its gains and its aporias and on the one hand on the socioconstructivist paradigm, on the other hand on the translation of the emphasis of school education from teaching to learning would be necessary. vill Plaz.
