Geography and Citizenship Education: Migrations and Pathways of Educational Research
Sarno, Emilia
Review of International Geographical Education Online, v1 n1 p72-83 Spr 2011
In this paper some pathways of geographical analysis will be illustrated and discussed, seen from a didactic point of view. The geographical theme chosen is that of migration. Migratory phenomena and the problems associated with it have always been a classic theme of geography; today however, they are of a particular interest and will allow us to promote a shared ethic. In this way there is education for citizenship. Geography, as a form of knowledge which helps us in interpreting the world, is able to educate us in an understanding of the social-economic processes that occur as well as in the construction of a sense of "multi-belonging." These issues must be dealt with and developed according to method of research and discovery in such a way that both emigration and immigration are focused on through an educational itinerary based upon theoretical reflection and on the spot experience. In fact, it illustrates the path of educational research carried out training courses for teachers who have been the laboratory to develop educational activities described. In this way the process of analysis will have both a valid formative educational and scientific value.
