We remind you that during the Fair, teachers will be able to find information desks to participate in the Erasmus and NOP programmes. The first Sicilian edition is dedicated to the centenary of the birth of the great educator, Mario Lodi, who, inspired by popular pedagogy, put children at the centre of the school, listening to their voices and enhancing their experiences, in order to learn to read the world through their eyes. . It is the “doing together” concept, which Don Lorenzo Milani applied in his school in Barbiana.
To register and participate in the training events of the event, it is necessary to consult the scientific programme on the Didacta Italy website and select the activities concerned, completing the procedure by purchasing the ticket directly on the portal, also using the teacher’s card.
