Abstract/Notes: In 1913 four Australian teachers attended inspirational educator Dr. Maria Montessori’s first international training course in Rome. That same year Blackfriars School in Sydney was one of the first schools in the world to adopt the Montessori approach. A century later, Montessori continues to be at the forefront of innovative education in this country, with 200 schools and centres, including Indigenous learning programs, and a recognised curriculum of its own.

Abstract/Notes: Il progetto di ricerca è uno studio esplorativo mixed-method riguardo la proposta e l’implementazione in classe di attività di apprendimento laboratoriale, che prevedono il coinvolgimento percettivo-motorio degli studenti come strategia di insegnamento della matematica. Nonostante la ricerca nei campi delle neuroscienze e della psicologia cognitiva, e gli studi condotti nel settore disciplinare della didattica della matematica abbiano evidenziato la rilevanza dell’esperienza attiva e corporea degli studenti nell’apprendimento della matematica, spesso l’insegnamento scolastico della disciplina sembra essere lontano da queste prospettive, fortemente ancorato a strategie d’insegnamento tradizionali, prettamente trasmissive. In questo studio, condotto in due contesti culturali molto distanti (quello Italiano e quello Australiano), vengono esplorate le ragioni di una tale distanza tra mondo della ricerca e mondo della scuola, investigando, in particolare, la prospettiva degli insegnanti di matematica di scuola primaria e secondaria riguardo la proposta e l’implementazione in classe di queste attività didattiche. L’indagine, oltre al diretto coinvolgimento degli insegnanti tramite un questionario online e interviste di follow-up, prevede interviste agli esperti nel campo della didattica della matematica e osservazioni in un ristretto numero di classi selezionate. Il lavoro finora condotto si è concentrato sullo sviluppo degli strumenti per l’investigazione di queste prospettive. Dati parziali, che riguardano il punto di vista degli esperti sull’oggetto di studio sono stati raccolti in Italia. Uno studio compilativo dei principali risultati della ricerca che ha per oggetto le pratiche di insegnamento investigate e la presenza di indicazioni ufficiali nei documenti curriculari e nelle politiche educative, nazionali e internazionali, completa il quadro di ricerca. / The research project is a mixed-method study on the proposal and implementation of active learning strategies that involve students’ bodies and movement in mathematics teaching practices. Despite both the research in cognitive psychology and neuroscience, and in mathematics education has increasingly highlighted the relevance of active, bodily experience in mathematics learning, often school teaching seems to be far removed from these perspectives, still largely transmissive. In this study, carried out in two different cultural contexts (Italy and Australia), the reasons for that distance are explored. The research aims to investigate the perspective of primary and secondary school teachers on these teaching proposals and their implementation in the classroom. In addition to the direct involvement of teachers, through an online questionnaire and follow-up interviews, the survey includes interviews with experts in the field of mathematics education and observations in a small number of selected classes. The work carried out so far has focused on the development of instruments to investigate these perspectives. Partial data concerning experts’ views on the object of study have been collected in Italy. A desk audit of the main research findings concerning the teaching practices under investigation and the presence of official indications in curricular documents and educational policies, both national and international, completes the research framework.
