------------------------
MM: PEDAGOGIA DELLA PRIMA INFANZIA
------------------------
Knowledge that you must have prior to attending the course (acquired in the first year): foundations and models of pedagogical theory, basic notions of developmental psychology, and history of early childhood education. The activities that contribute to the achievement of the learning goals are presented below. 1a. To consolidate the knowledge of the roots and of the main conceptual references of the pedagogy of childhood, with particular reference to the theme of care. The study of texts and the attendance of classes contribute to this goal. The handbook "presents the main concepts and authors of infant education and care, while the other texts offer a theoretical framework and guidelines for the practice of care. 1b. Know the essential elements of the Italian and European panorama on services for early childhood (0-3). This objective will be achieved in particular with the study of the book "Come progettare al nido" and the visit to the Loris Malaguzzi Center dedicated to the Reggio Approach. Furthermore, on the online platform, updated materials will be available on the topic "Infancy and Early Childhood Education and Care" in the European Union countries. 1c. Develop an adequate understanding of critical issues regarding the meaning of education in the 0-6 age range starting from the analysis and elaboration of their images of child, family, learning, educational relationships in childhood. During class, a space will be dedicated to the discussion of representations and mental models that students use to understand and interpret the world of children and the role of educational figures. These activities are aimed at promoting awareness of how some rooted assumptions guide practices and solicit a critical approach to stereotypical representations of children, families, educational relationships, and learning. Furthermore, the books support the achievement of this objective, always making explicit the connection between models and practices and dedicating space to the theme of continuing education, reflexivity and supervision in educational work with children. 2a. To be able to analyze educational practices and models in childcare services from a pedagogical point of view. In particular, during the lessons and field visits, particular attention will be paid to the development of observational skills oriented to understand the spaces, the objects, the gestures of the educational figures and to read and deepen their meanings and motivations in relation to theories and models. Educational. 2b. To know how to contextualize one's educational intervention in relation to the needs of the child and the environment and self-evaluate in the exercise of the educational practice. During the lessons there will be moments of work in groups and discussion on concrete cases that will contribute to enhance the reflexive, planning and evaluative skills and to put each and every one in the conditions of experimenting in a protected and non-judgmental space the processes of thought, comparison and decision-making that take place in educational practice. The cases will also be available on the platform in order to allow those who do not attend but are interested to have tools for experiencing reflection on practice.

Il tirocinio indiretto, della durata di 25 ore a frequenza obbligatoria al 75%, si svolge in Università per 20 ore e in forma di lavoro individuale per 5 ore e consiste in un accompagnamento iniziale delle/degli studenti da parte dei tutor attraverso un percorso formativo dotandoli di conoscenze e strumenti adeguati a osservare, comprendere e rielaborare criticamente l’esperienza di tirocinio nei servizi educativi e ad affrontare il tirocinio negli enti con metodo e consapevolezza.
