Dopo Bruner. Opzioni e prospettive per la ricerca didattica e la formazione degli insegnanti nel XXI
Ricerca didattica, riforma di strutture e riforma del curricolo: un intreccio problematico. Cultura, scuola e ricerca didattica. La cruna dell’ago si fa più sottile: la ricerca didattica tra conoscenza e concettualizzazione. Una storia…per posizionarci meglio. Una rivoluzione che fa fatica ad imporsi nei centralismi di tutte le stagioni. La modulazione degli apprendimenti, ovvero un curricolo per soglie di padronanza. Organizzazione degli insegnamenti e teorie dell'istruzione. Dopo Piaget:

STS.464 Technology and the Literary Imagination (MIT)
Our linked subjects are (1) the historical process by which the meaning of technology has been constructed, and (2) the concurrent transformation of the environment. To explain the emergence of technology as a pivotal word (and concept) in contemporary public discourse, we will examine responses — chiefly political and literary — to the development of the mechanic arts, and to the linked social, cultural, and ecological transformation of 19th- and 20th-century American society, cultu

In The Souls of Black Folk (1903), the great cultural critic W. E. B. Du Bois wrote that "...the problem of the Twentieth Century is the problem of the color line." A century after Du Bois penned those words, most Americans would agree that at the beginning of the twenty-first century, the color line remains one of our most pressing social issues. In this course, we will explore the terrain of race in America by reading the works of writers of color and others concerned with the issue

The Renaissance has justly become both famous and notorious as an age of discovery, and its voyages took place in many realms. This semester, we will read several history making narratives of early modern travel: first-hand accounts of discovery, captivity, conquest, or cultural encounter.

We'll examine social histories of automata and automation; the trope of t
