Domenico Parisi expresses in his article his concern about a science, the cognitive psychology, that is careless towards school learning and he emphasizes how little is dedicated to the implementation of new technologies. In my comment, I tried to express what, in my opinion, this science is doing to improve learning situations, trying to better understand how cognitive processes ensure or not the learning itself (for example in cases of specific learning disorders). In particular having worked for years on numerical cognition, I brought concrete and significant examples of how, in this context, psychology and technology are working together to enhance learning.
Keywords: Cognitive psychology, school learning, numerical cognition
