HOW CAN SCHOOLS TODAY FACE THE CHALLENGES OF TOMORROW?

Schools have always faced the challenge of preparing children for a future which they could not predict. Our children must be equipped with the tools they need to face whatever their future may hold. Riconnessioni is a three year project sponsored by Compagnia di San paolo and run by Fondazione per la Scuola in partnership with Open Fiber, aimed at supporting the transformation of our schools, making them fit for the future. Riconnessioni is a model for educational innovation on a national scale, starting from Turin.

WHAT DOES RICONNESSIONI DO?

Riconnessioni brings systemic change to primary and lower secondary schools,
accompanying them through processes of technological, organisational, and educational innovation. Teachers, students, and parents will join a strong and stable community, enabling schools to become powerful agents of social change. By signing an agreement on educational innovation, the schools which join Riconnessioni will become part of a 4-phase transformation.

1 - INFRASTRUCTURE: FIBRE OPTIC BROADBAND
IN ALL SCHOOL BUILDINGS.

Riconnessioni invests directly in infrastructure. Thanks to partnerships with national and international organizations from both the public and the private sector, all participating schools will be equipped with fibre optic broadband internet connectivity (started in Turin, but soon to include other Italian cities).

2 - ADVANCED WI-FI

Riconnessioni aims to promote high-quality internal connectivity infrastructure in school buildings. Together with headteachers, technical staff, and teachers, Riconnessioni supports schools in the identification of needs and solutions, ensuring that participating schools’ innovation needs are met.

3 - BETTER SERVICES:
CLOUD BASED-SCHOOLS

How will this state of the art infrastructure be used? Riconnessioni sees internet connectivity as an enabling factor for a revolution in school management. To achieve this, the project works with headteachers and heads of administrative staff through capacity building courses on change management and digital innovation and seminars and workshops on data management. This will greatly contribute to alleviate our schools’ administrative burden.

4 - INNOVATIVE PEDAGOGY:
TEACHING FOR THE FUTURE

Riconnessioni is a community of teachers, parents, and students, coming together to co-design the future of teaching. The project’s core mission is to promote innovative ideas and practices, bringing together schools a in a continuous development journey in which technology is invisible (because it is available, reliable, and safe) and instrumental (not an end in itself) to learning. A crucial aspect of the project will thus be the support provided to teachers through innovative continuing professional development programs on the use of technology in the classroom.

WHO IS RICONNESSIONI?

Riconnessioni is a Compagnia di San Paolo project, run by Fondazione per la Scuola in partnership with OpenFiber and in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, Universities, and Research, the Piedmont Office of Education, and the city of Turin.
