Like the rest of the world, Italy has experienced the rapid transition from face-to-face learning to distance learning, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Far from considering Distance Learning as a further negative effect of the current pandemic, this paper intends to illustrate the reasons why Distance Learning-better defined as Emergency Remote Learn...

At critical moments such as that of the Covid-19 pandemic, vulnerability and fragility emerge, even in the field of pedagogy. This paper, through a multidisciplinary approach, aims to examine the desired transition from a pedagogy of vulnerability to a pedagogy of resilience, from a perspective in which the focus is on the creative and transformati...

The idea that people create an identity – conceptualized in terms of beliefs, ideological commitments, social roles and personal talents – through the construction of stories has emerged, in recent decades, as a leading concept in social sciences. Given this ideological convergence on the importance of narrative for the construction of identity, it...

This paper explores the idea that a learning process based on talent development is the only one capable of producing a developmental and transfor-mative impact on the learner, in particular in deviant contexts. After identifying the fundamental trigger of potential in the development of a healthy self-concept, this study aimed to offer empirical e...

Il volume si propone di analizzare nel dettaglio le fondamentali questioni psicopedagogiche legate alle caratteristiche e al comportamento del minore deviante e trasgressore, che hanno determinato la filosofia stessa su cui si fonda l'attuale sistema della giustizia penale minorile, con particolare riferimento all'imputabilità, all'immaturità e all...

Il volume si propone di analizzare in dettaglio i processi implicati nella costruzione sociale della devianza nella società contemporanea, considerando gli atti devianti come il risultato di un disturbo relazionale tra gli individui e il loro contesto d'appartenenza. Cosa significa essere membri di un gruppo? Cosa comporta l'esserne esclusi? Quali...

Cosa hanno in comune i Beatles, Marc Chagall, Stanley Kubrick, Bill Gates, Jane Austen, Valentino Rossi e Roberto Bolle? Certamente il talento, non quello della genialità innata, ma quello della perseveranza e della dedizione, che consentono di costruire, non senza fatica, l'expertise. Sovvertita l'idea di talento come dote innata, riservata a poch...

Why is there resistance to identify first, and then support gifted children in our regular classes? Why feeding “suspicion” of those who show high levels of intelligence, especially if very precocious? Labelling theory and the stereotype threat can help in trying to answer these questions. If labels are the names we attribute to people, stereotypes...

The preliminary data collected allowed to identify...

General reference to giftedness has evolved over time from mechanically considering the mere performance of IQ to definitions that include traits such as specific cognitive abilities, creativity, task engagement, motivation to success, leadership potential, and even psychomotor skills (Marland, 1972). Actually gifted children often find themselves...

Tutti i bambini sono un dono, ma il talento non è un dono. Questa idea ci libera, con una sola mossa, dalle speculazioni dottrinali o commerciali sui giften chilfren e ci difende dalle derive di egoismo sociale della teoria del capitale umano. In realtà essa travalica le aule scolastiche e interpella la coscienza dell'Occidente nel momento stesso i...

Despite the modernity of its reflections on educating young people to a healthy citizenship, the Delors Report (1996) lacks an explicit reference to the phenomenon of juvenile delinquency. What role can education play in preventing the opportunities for negative deviance, which have so much influence on young people? Problems such as youth unemploy...

Given the growing concern about physical inactivity in youth, linked, among other things, to contemporary technologies usage, the purpose of this paper is to highlight the benefits that active play, physical activity and sport can have in contributing to positive development. The link between physical activity and cognitive benefits has been well-e...

Developing learning objectives that reflect the idea that intelligence is constituted by an expandable repertoire of abilities, and that therefore it is possible, through personal efforts, to make it increase in an incremental way, is the pedagogic imperative of the XXI century. In fact, intelligence or “adaptive behaviour” is connected to cognitiv...

Adottando una prospettiva incrementale sul talento, si propone che il talento personale possa essere progressivamente sviluppato attraverso un training specifico e lo sforzo individuale. In tale ottica il talento personale sottolinea l'auto-selezione degli obiettivi di vita, piuttosto che focalizzarsi strettamente sul successo. Partendo da tali premesse, si stanno analizzando gli sviluppi neuroscientifici che hanno il potenziale di contribuire a spiegare come si formano i talenti.
