DIDACTA FAIR 2021 IS APPROACHING – From Extraordinary Events to Extraordinary Changes is the name of the streaming event of DIDACTA ITALY FAIR set to take place on 13th and 14th October 2020.
These two days will deal with projects and assessments on school transformation – an unmissable opportunity to meet sector specialists online, discuss the future of school and take a first step towards DIDACTA FAIR 2021, set to take place at the Fortezza da Basso, in Florence for the fourth consecutive year, from 17th to 19th March 2021.
The programme will feature four events. On Tuesday, 13th October (from 15:00 to 17:00) the event will start with the theme Pre-School Education in the Age of Digitisation: A Necessary Reorientation. Multiple and unprecedented scenarios will be examined, appearing after the recent reform following which the 0-6 age group was organically included within the education system. In the light of what happened in these last months, the use of technology to educate children proved to be a controversial aspect, which therefore requires a thorough debate.
The theme of the second session on this first day will be Online Teaching: The Digital World as a Resource (from 17:00 to 19:00). The discussion will focus on the need to benefit from the opportunities offered by the digital world in these last months, to change the school system and the didactic organisation.
New School Structures for a New Didactic Organisation is the theme opening the second day (Wednesday, 14th October, from 15:00 to 17:00). The pandemic and the opportunities offered by the Recovery Fund might be an unrepeatable occasion to promote a structural change. Changing spaces represents a major drive to innovate the educational model: “Space Teaches”.
A School in Midstream – The Unfinished School Autonomy is the last event of the two days of DIDACTA FAIR 2021 IS APPROACHING (Wednesday, 14th October, from 17:00 to 19:00). The thorniest aspects of school autonomy will be discussed. An autonomy which, after its launch – over twenty years ago – remains largely unfinished. An unfinished autonomy might restrain very much essential innovation processes.
