Abstract

Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the need to promote digital education has been felt even more, bringing the DELTA Research Group to reflect on how digital education could optimally facilitate the creation of an educating community able to promote and support educational success exclusively through distance learning. In order to answer, in this paper the experience of the 2019/2020 edition of “Scuola dei Compiti” (a recovery project for secondary schools of the poorest suburbs of Turin) is analysed in the perspective of the priority strategies illustrated in the Digital Education Action Plan for the period 2021-2027. Results will show that this was a forerunner experience perfectly in line with the principles and directions outlined in the document. Moreover, thanks to digital education, even a peculiar edition of the project such as this one has been a success: in fact, it has allowed students to improve from a cognitive and metacognitive point of view, even during a time that was very difficult for some families.
