Abstract

Educating for cooperation in early childhood for the development of a culture of peace. Wonder about the educational perspectives, able to support and activate the process of culture of peace, means to open a discussion on how, starting from the early childhood, it is possible to educate through experiences of cooperation, competition and participation. Their reference seeks to consider the dimension of knowledge, as the acquisition of content and knowledge, we should, necessarily, articulate and modulate with the construction of a social knowledge, supported by references of theoretical models capable to include the meaning of cooperative learning and theory of structural cognitive modifiability. In this perspective of lifelong learning, the ability to readjust so plastic and creative cognitive strategies, form the emotional and communicative development of the needs and the intra and intersubjective stimulus.
