“These are indications that each educational institution, in its own territory and in the awareness of the needs and resources it expresses, will be able to better design, reject or otherwise translate. It is essential that the actions are included within a framework of meaning in relation to the other activities carried out in the course of the year, to the students’ and the adults who accompany their real lives. That they are able to help re-establish the connection and deepen, in ways appropriate to age and interests, each individual’s experience ‘. Above all, it is essential that the activities are inclusive in relation to any situation or condition that the students experience. In particular, the need for students with disabilities to be actively welcomed in them is emphasized. “we read in the provision.

Activities for the restoration of formal learning will be carried out through engaging and active forms; creative writing workshops, comparison of poetic themes between different cultures, mathematical games, chemistry and physics experiences, etc .;

The other activities

  • CAMPUS activities (Computing, Art, Music, Public life, Sports) and “Summer school”. In many areas, there are public and private institutions that can collaborate for free with schools;
  • strengthening the teaching of the English language, also for Italian students, with active methods and as far as possible in the situation (eg by exploiting tourism contexts for small operational activities);
  • support for relationality through the prevention and combating of cyberbullying, updating the field of action based on the current political, social and ethical situation. Including teaching correct interpersonal relationships and rejecting all forms of violence. For example, the inability to distinguish the true from the false in what is found on the Internet – the confusion between the number of likes or views and the finding of the truth of facts – training in timely verification of events and sources suggests the validity of news or opinions disseminated online (fact checking);
  • for all ages, development and in-depth study of environmental issues, associated with energy savings and taking responsibility for one’s environment: cleaning gardens and river beds, “adoption” of flower beds or plants in public parks … It is worth remembering that the use of the hand has made our species what it is, has enabled the brain, cognitive and linguistic development. The loss of manual skills in the new generations has serious consequences for cognitive, mental and relational structures;
  • peace education, through forms of experiential learning, such as, for example, non-violent conflict management activities (suitable for different ages and relationships), increased mutual trust, the ability to cooperate towards an end, etc .;
  • for the smallest, collective gaming projects, for example through the rediscovery and exchange of traditional games from the various countries of origin;
  • always for the small, psychomotor interventions performed by expert staff, not only in working with children (and this would be obvious), but also with children in stressful situations;
  • for young people who carry out small manual activities, for socialization and educational purposes, of education for civil and environmental coexistence (eg arrangements for arranging flower boxes, bicycles for classmates, …).
