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, sponsored and managed by Fondazione per la Scuola della Compagnia di San Paolo, is a model for educational innovation on a national scale, starting from Turin, aimed at supporting the transformation of our schools, making them fit for the future.

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 - Broadband in every classroom,
at the flick of a switch!

High-speed internet in every classroom with wired and wireless access points: users will be able to go online easily and quickly from anywhere in each school, at any time.

3 - Better services:
cloud based-schools.

​How will this state of the art infrastructure be used? At the moment, schools gather data through different incompatible platforms, mixing digital and analog repositories. Riconnessioni provides schools with a platform (a cloud for schools) designed to harmonize and synthesize data and procedures, guaranteeing accessibility and transparency to all users. This will greatly contribute to alleviate our schools’ administrative burden.

4 - Innovative pedagogy:
teaching for the future.

Infrastructural innovation will enable Riconnessioni to facilitate the activation of a movement, bringing together teachers, parents, and students to co-design the future of teaching. The project’s core mission is to promote innovative ideas and practices, bringing together schools and communities 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.
