The Small schools’ week (2-8 December, Auditorium Parco della Musica)
The Small schools’ week is an initiative organised by Indire to cast attention on the innovative dimension and the needs of schools located in isolated and marginal areas. From 2 to 8 December at the Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome a series of events especially dedicated to this school realities are going to take place:
- The international convention “Community of memory, community of future. The value of a small school”, during which institutional representatives, experts and researchers will confront on possible interventions in support of educational quality in small schools.
- The exhibition “Borders. The adventure of education in outlying areas”, an exhibition path that in different sessions deals with the themes of the national unification process, mass alphabetisation, and rural world (1861-1945 and 1945-1980). Among the aspects illustrated – also through quotes of documents and diaries of some teachers, compulsory schooling, urbanisation processes and rurality, transport means to reach the school, schools inside and outside villages. Another series of panels concerns school building, teaching body, methodologies, technologies.
- Gaming/educational paths for students aimed at the creation of the identity of their small school. By the end of activities, students will be given awards by Indire’s researchers.
