Learning Objectives

The course aims to deepen the role of the different didactic mediators in the development of symbolization processes that allow the fruition and production of representation systems referable to different types of codes. In particular, the course aims to provide the theoretical and methodological tools to plan - in the light of the constructs of "symbolic mind", "naïve mind", "disciplinary mind" -  teaching mediation activities to promote the acquisition of symbolic-cultural systems. Such symbolic-cultural systems, in fact, allow to exercise and develop a plurality of intelligences.

Program

The course will address the following thematic areas:
The symbolic mind
The symbolic processes and systems of representation.
The naïve mind
The disciplinary mind
Multiple intelligences and teaching models aimed at their enhancement
Teaching vs learning
Teaching as mediation
Didactic mediators

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

Knowledge and understanding: 
At the end of the course the student will have acquired knowledge of the constructs of symbolic mind, naïve mind and disciplinary mind; he will have learned of the processes of symbolisation, the different types of intelligence, the main theories of learning; he will have understood the constructs of didactic transposition and didactic mediation and their functions; he will master the main didactic mediators. 

Applying knowledge and understanding: 
At the end of the course the student will have to demonstrate the ability to: recognize the different role of the various symbolic-cultural systems and plan didactic activities to promote their learning; use the different types of didactic mediators to develop a plurality of intelligences; identify possibilities of interinstitutional cooperation between school and extra-school for the realization of active and personalized training paths in different contexts; use the knowledge on the "symbolic mind" and on the function of didactic mediators to design well structured and logically organized learning experiences. 

Making judgements: 
At the end of the course the student will have to demonstrate the aptitude to: critically evaluate the adequacy of didactic choices related to the didactic transposition of knowledge in the light of the constructs of symbolic mind, naïve mind and disciplinary mind; identify the most suitable didactic mediators for the construction of specific learning environments; evaluate learning units in relation to the development of multiple intelligences.

Communication skills:
At the end of the course the student must have acquired: the ability to clearly express the contents of the course and explain its meaning; the ability to communicate through the use of specific disciplinary language with school operators; the ability to argue on topics and problems in the educational field.

Learning skills:
