Several changes have affected the school system, leading to the more frequent use of ICT in teaching, learning and social relations at all levels of education.
The growing diffusion of digital technologies in schools, universities and training centres provides the basis for experimentation and innovation projects using top-down and bottom-up approaches. As a result, the rules and roles that historically characterised socialisation contexts have been reconfigured according to new learning tools and related changes in habits and school practices. What has been observed leaves several research questions open?
What new paths will be undertaken by the school systems?
What changes regarding learning do we expect as a result of these processes?
How do digital technologies affect the way people work together in schools? How do they affect the teaching profession and the school organisation?
How does the interaction between students or teachers change with the use of digital technologies?
Can the digital environment influence students’ socialisation choices and their social life? And how?
Finally, do gender, social class and ethnicity interact with the increasing use of technology?
These are the questions that, from a multidisciplinary point of view, will stimulate the debate at the Learning Digital conference: which issues from education 2.0? To be held July 2 and three at the University of Cagliari. On the different themes of culture, 2.0 will be presented the results of research conducted within different disciplinary approaches (sociology, pedagogy, statistics) and the results of the survey on the Sardinian Digital School project led by the CIRD inter-university research centre will be discussed. The conference will see the participation of the actors of the academic world, of the regional administration and the various educational research agencies.
