Educational Avant-garde at the event “Horizons and Connections”at BassanoExpo

Ideas and proposals for a school moving with the times will be the protagonists on 3 and 5 May at the free-of-charge event “Horizons and Connections” at BassanoExpo. The event is organised by the territorial network of schools in the Bassano-Asiago area (via Valsugana, 22 a Cassola – Vicenza).

Thanks to workshops, plenary sessions, laboratories, best practices presented by students and training sessions run by the companies participating in the fair, the initiative will be an occasion of reflexion on the new horizons of teaching, an opportunity to bring to light proposals designed to trigger systemic change, not just episodic and fragmented innovation, in teaching and learning methods.

The programme includes themes of general interest on innovation at school, presented through plenary sessions and a series of seminars addressed to teachers, digital animators, headmasters, directors of administrative general services, school administrative staff, companies, families and students on 4 specific themes:

  • Innovative methods (learning environments, didactic methods, innovative teaching, laboratory teaching and competency-based teaching)
  • Inclusion (accessibility, tools and methods to personalise learning)
  • Digital classrooms (digital and technological competencies for teaching, cloud environments and platforms, teaching apps, digital competencies of the teachers, virtual reality, augmented reality, coding and robotics)
  • Change management (governance of change, the profile of the new headmaster, international profile of the teacher, staff work, tools for school management, new communication in the public administration, real and virtual networks).
