Learning outcomes

At the end of the workshop the student: - applies what is presented in the course within a simulated learning environment - reflects critically on the themes proposed in the groups.

Course contents

The main theme of the workshop is the use of digital as an environment/tool to approach children to art and artistic heritage.

During the workshop some digital storytelling paths in pre-school and primary school will be investigated. In particular, digital museums and the MOdE-Museo Officina dell'Educazione will be presented. Specifically students will design and set up digital exhibition itineraries and they will propose art and artistic heritage to children in a creative and original way with different languages.

It is possible to enroll in only one workshop with compulsory attendance. Absences from the workshops lasting 8 hours (1 cfu) are not allowed.


The workshop is integrated with the Iconology and Iconography course, therefore there are no compulsory textbooks for the study. Other readings:
