The many opportunities offered by the Internet come along with risks that need to be mitigated. In fact, the web is like an immense world wide square, where everything can be found, including crime. To be in it safely, and to get only the good from it, people need to learn how to orient themselves, acquiring adequate knowledge and developing specific skills. Nobody should be exempt from making this commitment, especially the school system.
The seminar, entitled “Educating people about the net, the role of schools”, will take place on Tuesday July the 2nd from 9.00 AM to 12.30 PM, at Istituto d’Istruzione Superiore “Michele Giua” (via Montecassino, Cagliari).
This is the last appointment of the “Tutti a Iscol@ Linea B3 IDEA” project's series of events. “Tutti a Iscol@ Linea B3 IDEA” is a project aiming at innovating teaching approaches through digital technologies. It is developed by CRS4 Educational Technology team in partnership with Assessorato della Pubblica Istruzione Regione Autonoma Sardegna and the regional agency Sardegna Ricerche.
