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 of the Primary Education course of study, therefore there are no compulsory textbooks for the study. Other readings:
