Abstract/Notes: Neste artigo busca-se uma compreensão das ideias sobre a educação da segunda infância em Portugal, entre finais do século XIX e meados do seguinte. Compulsaram-se um conjunto de revistas de educação publicadas em Portugal. A análise detetou tendências e nuances do processo de modernização pedagógica. Certos autores defendem o ambiente familiar como o mais adequado para a educação da infância, destacando a mulher como mãe e educadora, outros denunciam a sua impreparação, advogando a sua formação e sustentavam a conveniência da educação de infância em instituições, segundo as modernas propostas pedagógicas. Estes últimos tenderam a manifestar posicionamentos idênticos aos que se expressam em outros países europeus sobre os modelos pedagógicos direcionados especificamente à segunda infância.

Abstract/Notes: Les jardins d’enfants qui se développent en Europe au XIXe siècle selon les principes froëbeliens s’implantent plus difficilement en France où les salles d’asile, puis l’école maternelle instituée par Pauline Kergomard1, développent un accueil spécifique pour les enfants d’âge préscolaire. Néanmoins, ils bénéficient dès les années 1910 de l’essor mondial du montessorisme, et l’on constate la création de nombreux jardins d’enfants et d’écoles nouvelles jusqu’à l’orée de la seconde guerre mondiale. Les jardinières reçoivent une formation spécifique, centrée sur les méthodes actives prônées par les psychologues s’intéressant au développement de l’enfant, et délivrée dès le début du XXe siècle par des institutions privées. Cette formation est prise en charge par l’État entre les années 1921 et 1931, alors que Mlle Amieux, professeur au collège Sévigné, crée un cours pédagogique au lycée de jeunes filles de l’École normale de Sèvres. Les jardinières munies du certificat d’État sont ensuite embauchées dans les jardins d’enfants et les classes enfantines des lycées bourgeois. Cette expérience s’arrête en 1931 lorsque les lycées ne sont plus autorisés à ouvrir des classes enfantines, mettant ainsi un terme à l’existence des jardins d’enfants dans l’enceinte de l’enseignement secondaire. Nous verrons dans ce chapitre en quoi cette formation a été à la résultante, pas toujours harmonieuse, de l’institution scolaire et du mouvement en faveur de l’éducation des jeunes enfants, et en quoi elle a été un enjeu qui reste actuel. Quelle était cette formation spécifique, quelles raisons conduisent à son arrêt en 1931 et qu’advient-il de la formation des jardinières après cette date ? Voici les questions que nous envisageons d’explorer à travers le prisme d’une éducation préscolaire envisagée dans et hors l’école, à partir de sources provenant de fonds d’archives publics2 et privés3, complétés par des ouvrages et revues pédagogiques telles La Nouvelle Éducation, la Revue universitaire, l’Éducation enfantine ou encore la Revue de l’enseignement secondaire des jeunes filles. [Kindergartens that developed in Europe in the nineteenth century according to Froëbelian principles were more difficult to establish in France where the asylum rooms, then the nursery school instituted by Pauline Kergomard, developed a specific reception for the children of preschool age. Nonetheless, they benefited from the worldwide boom in montessorism from the 1910s onwards, and many kindergartens and new schools were established until the onset of the Second World War. The gardeners receive specific training, focused on the active methods advocated by psychologists interested in the development of the child, and delivered from the beginning of the 20th century by private institutions. This training was paid for by the State between the years 1921 and 1931, when Miss Amieux, a teacher at the Sévigné college, created an educational course at the high school for young girls of the Normal School of Sèvres. The gardeners with the state certificate are then employed in the kindergartens and nursery classes of middle-class high schools. This experiment ended in 1931 when high schools were no longer allowed to open nursery classes, thus putting an end to the existence of kindergartens within the walls of secondary education. We will see in this chapter how this training was the result, not always harmonious, of the school institution and the movement in favor of the education of young children, and how it was an issue that remains current. What was this specific training, what are the reasons for its discontinuation in 1931 and what happens to the training of gardeners after that date? Here are the questions that we plan to explore through the prism of preschool education envisaged in and outside school, using sources from public2 and private3 archival funds, supplemented by educational books and reviews such as La Nouvelle Education, the University Review, Childhood Education or the Journal of secondary education for young girls.]

Conference Paper

Education for Conflict – Education for Peace

Available from: ERIC

Annual Meeting of the Comparative and International Education Society

See More

Abstract/Notes: This paper contrasts the use of education for conflict with the use of education for peace, shows some historical developments in the field of peace education, and summarizes facets and the diffusion of peace education. The paper explores some considerations for learning environments suitable for peace education programs and describes selected features of two schools to illustrate the implementation of some of the characteristics of peace education. It explains that, although college offerings in peace education worldwide demonstrate the scarcity of peace education programs in mainstream educational institutions, a Web site listing colleges and universities that offer peace studies programs shows approximately 120 graduate and undergraduate programs, most of which are located in North America. The paper notes that in public schools, peace education can at best be found in the international education or conflict resolution programs designed to prevent school violence. Appended is a reference list of peace education Web sites, selected by the U.S. Department of Education. (Contains 27 references.)

Abstract/Notes: The article presents the philosophies of John Amos Comenius, Immanuel Kant and Maria Montessori. It focuses on problem areas that are particularly inspiring for modern thinking about peace and education for peace and points out a broad definition of peace provided by each of the above philosophers. Their theories go far beyond identifying peace with the absence of war and they consider peace to be a process that requires building and strengthening as well as the participation of all people, not only politicians. From this perspective, peace building becomes an important educational task. The basic goal is to ensure that individuals have the feeling of authorship and responsibility for peaceful coexistence among people. Only a combination of peace-reinforcing political initiatives with daily activities supported by education and aimed at promoting peace provides real chances to make the world a better place.
