Assumptions and objectives of innovation in the school context: from the community to the common good
The aim of the research was to question the meaning of innovation, trying to transcend the mere size methodological and instrumental. On the basis of the philosophical and pedagogical concept of formativity, we have questioned the assumptions and objectives of innovation, through a reading ethic and hermeneutics of educational planning.
The research was conducted on the transverse planes: the theoretical analyzes in sociopedagogical perspective the relationship school-society, relying on theoretical principles of neopersonalismo Christian-based and relational paradigm; on the practical uses of an experimental educational-training activities started in 2011 in the municipality of Montecorvino Pugliano (Salerno).
The hypothesis of the project relates to the revaluation of the concept of community within the school situation: the social capital is and must be first of all human capital, so that “ the us become internalized and deep root, able to make fruitful the common good” (Castaldi M.C, 2013).
It outlines the objectives of the project: “once again on” the relational being of man; rediscover the ontological significance of the community dimension of the school experience; form the humus made of human values and common feelings.
The educational-training methodologies used are part of the perspective of the pedagogy of the gift, articulating a virtuous circle between the education of thought (John Dewey) and the education of the heart (St. John Bosco).
