One of the most promising recent research field in history of education is the study of the objects used in the learning process. The history of educational ideas has a very long tradition and the history of schools and educational institutions has been a significant topic for decades, but new heuristic approaches have widened the research in history of education, as we can see if we think of the cultural turn, the corporeal turn, or the visual turn. While the question of the history of pedagogy and its tools is embedded in these perspectives, it deserves to be researched with a specific focus.
