Multimedia: A Powerful Support for Multidisciplinary Approach. A Case Study from the Project Discetech-Bimbotech.
Gobbo, E.; Torrebruno, A.; Paolini, P.
The Discetech project, which was started in 1996 in Northern Italy, aims at experimenting the introduction of new technologies within the teaching-learning activities of high school classrooms. Since 1998, a similar project, Bimbotech, has been developed for elementary classrooms (for children ages four- to seven-years old). Several hundreds of experiences involving several thousands of pupils have been carried out by the teachers, who have been previously instructed and assisted by the project's staff. This paper briefly introduces a case study, one of the most interesting Bimbotech experiments analyzing the organization, the phases, the results and the lessons learned. The final section provides a few useful suggestions for mutual connection between multimedia and knowledge. (Author)
