CHILDREN AND THE REVOLUTION OF DIVERSITY
This volume was created around the collection of essays presented at the International Conference on Children and the Revolution of Diversity held in San Miniato on the 9 and 10 February 2018. It was a gathering where people from many different countries shared their reflections on the recognition and enhancement of children’s protagonism in experiences that support their growth and the development of their relationships, knowledge and learning.
The covered central themes in pedagogical thought and practice that have been applied for some time in the early childhood educational services of San Miniato, as well as themes that have been at the centre of the pedagogical thought of Gloria Tognetti, whose birthday was celebrated at the conference, after her premature passing.
For this reason, the contents in this book has been expanded to include some unpublished essays that Gloria Tognetti worked on in the final years of her work on the topic of mixed-age groups and curriculum and that nicely complete the already rich Framework offered by the speeches presented during the conference.
Edited by Aldo Fortunati and Barbara Pagni.
