Like it does every week, Impactscool’s team will be involved in several events all across Italy and beyond. Find out where you can find us.
Training the youngest minds for the future thinking is the challenge that Impactscool faces every week through its workshops: on May 31st we will held the workshop “Approach to Exponential Technologies” at I.T.C. Belotti in Bergamo. Reserved for the students of the institute, the workshop will take a closer look at the role of new technologies in our future lives: our Future Activist Luca Tiraboschi will discuss it with the students.
On May 28th, instead, Cristina Pozzi, CEO of Impactscool, will talk about “The future and exponential technologies” with the students of Its Blaise Pascal, of the Liceo Ariosto- Spallanzani and of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia. The event is part of the initiatives for the inauguration of the new headquarters of Errevi System, the leading company in the ICT sector, in Reggio Emilia.
From 29th to 31st May, instead, we will talk about a possible future between the school walls at #FuturaPescara, the event organized by Miur, the Italian Ministry for Education and University, within the National Plan for the Digital School. Futura aims to foster a comparison on the implementation of the NPDS and wants to collect ideas, observations and new projects. After the launch event held in Bologna last January, Futura started a tour throughout the country to bring the debate on the future of the school system all across Italy.
After the first two dates, in Catania and in Caltanissetta, the third of the twenty-four events designed by Miur will arrive in Pescara, where the main theme will be “Terra Reale 4.0“: workshops, exhibitions, debates, technological showcases, comparisons on teaching and digital innovation of the schools will animate for three days the Pala Dean Martin – Congress Center of Montesilvano, where the event will took place.
Impactscool will also be at #FuturaPescara: in particular, it will take the stage at the #woMEST event, the national call to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) for the female public.
As reported by a study conducted by Microsoft and the London School of Economics, in Italy only 12.6% of female students decide to pursue a university career in STEM subjects. “The belief that there are no equal opportunities in the STEM field is one of the first factors that influence the decision of young Italian students to abandon their passion for science. – the study reads – In general, the optimism that comes from an original passion for STEM and the conviction of having the potential to face any type of training or professional course is therefore overwhelmed by realism.” For this reason, Impactscool is aware of the importance of fostering a smart debate to talk about technologies and the opportunities they can offer.
As the Minister of Education Valeria Fedeli explained in her closing speech at the event in Caltanissetta: “Innovation is decisive for governing change. And it is a challenge that cannot be won simply by acquiring technology or by introducing new content or educational targets. We win by helping our girls and our boys to develop a critical spirit and a sense of responsibility, we win by investing decisively in the care of quality, which regards the education system and the methodological innovation. We win by focusing on skills”.
