Le rappresentazioni degli studenti nell’insegnamento della fisica – un programma didattico (traduzione di A. Fichera)
In recent years work on students’ conceptions attracted the attention of people engaged in doing research on difficulties in learning physics. This paper shows that the origin of this kind of work can be traced back to a didactical programme starting many tears ago. This programme’s progress in theorizing, its success in recognizing specific misconceptions and its methods are then discussed. Further developments are described, with special attention to the anthropological approach. Consequences on didactical methodology are briefly mentioned.
