Geographic education: psychogenetics and school knowledge

On the bases of the theoretical conceptions of psychogenetics, this paper explores learning and didactics in school geography. It thus presents some aspects of geographical thought, which it articulates with the pedagogical knowledge. It then proposes a new reading of the didactics in the teaching of geography grounded on the assumptions of the theories of Piaget.
