ERVET (Emilia Romagna Valorizzazione Economica del Territorio, Bologna) will be the partner for the ALL DIGITAL Week in Italy for the fifth time.
The 2019 edition of the campaign in Emilia Romagna will see again the participation of multiple actors working on digital culture and education in different domains.
The three main streams of initiatives are the following:
- Workshops and information events of the Pane e Internet (PeI) project of the regional government run in collaboration with Municipalities through the PeI Points. They are the digital literacy training courses for adults and seniors (often on the use of smartphones); events for children, teenagers and their families on safe Internet use; and information meetings on online fiscal services to get tax benefits for the home, in collaboration with the national Agenzia delle Entrate.
- The wide range of training workshops for school teachers on educational technology and innovative pedagogical methods, run by the Servizio Marconi of the Emilia Romagna regional office of the Ministry of Education.
- The innovative digital, coding and multimedia educational workshops run byOpen Group (often focused on the potential to address various disabilities) for early childhood, children and teenagers, their families and the educators working with them.
A number of other initiatives on different topics are organised by local digital culture associations such as Casa Corsini and Civibox, Unioncamere (Chambers of Commerce), Media Library online and Modena libraries and CPIA adult education school, EWMD in Reggio Emilia and Modena (coding for girls).
Almost 2,000 people are expected to participate to these events during the ADW 2019.
