OVERVIEW

The course provides theoretical tools, developed within the research in mathematics education and cognitive sciences as well as neuroscience, to frame the teaching and learning processes of the discipline, with particular reference to the Inclusion. Furthermore, the processes of teaching and learning mathematics mediated by technology and the management of profiles with specific learning disabilities in mathematics will be treated.

 

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course aims to develop educational skills related to the discipline, with particular reference to the ability to design and implement inclusive educational activities, to conduct educational reflections a priori and a posteriori of the activities carried out, and to implement appropriate evaluation strategies

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course aims:
- to present theoretical tools to frame the teaching and learning processes of mathematics in inclusive context , also mediated by technologies;
- to discuss conceptual, epistemological, linguistic and didactic knots of mathematics education, also with reference to difficulties or special needs

Teaching methods

Lectures where  take turns explanations by the teacher and discussions with the students. small group working sessions with collective debate are also planned

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Theoretical tools to frame the teaching and learning processes of mathematics
Mathematics teaching and learning processes mediated by technologies
* 1. The  Semiotic Mediation framework  to  design   educational activities mediated by the use of artifacts
* 2. Instrumental genesis as  necessary process in order to use artifacts.
* 3. The  Universal Design for Learning to design  inclusive teaching
* 4. The laboratory context to design educational activities in algebra : the use of dynamic software AlNuSet
* 5. Assessment   in  inclusive teaching context.

Management of mathematics learning profiles of subjects with BES or DSA
* Italian ministerial documents and diagnostic manuals
* National and international studies on specific learning disorders in mathematics, with particular attention to secondary school
* Analysis and comparison of  different approaches to these studies: cognitive sciences, neuroscience and mathematics education
* From research to practice: the use of physical or digital artifacts
* The idea of inclusive education at national and international level.
