COLLANA: Quaderni di Comunità 2/2023
Edited by Ida Cortoni, Veronica Lo Presti, Eleonora Sparano
This issue of the journal addresses the topic of “Teaching Enhanced Learning for engaging and inclusive learning” in the digital age. The topic is certainly not new in the international scientific de bate, which is interdisciplinary in nature; it is part of the mes underlying the studies of Digital Education and Digital Literacy, but it represents an issue that is always at the forefront insofar as it is affected by technological innovations and sociocultural changes that digital culture progressively stimulates and promotes in different educational environments. In this sense, digital education in teaching and learning processes needs to be scientifically recognized in academic circles, institutionalized by emphasizing the methodology and evaluation strategies that educational media practices have been experimenting with for several years, for the purpose of a systematization of interventions, scientific literature and critical reflections on the topic. Within this issue, the focus is exactly on the assessment methodologies and strategies activated and activated in the digital education perspective, with special attention to best practices in different educational contexts: from elementary school to university.
