Today’s “GR 1 Ragazzi” reports on the Internet with the tutors from the Torricelli School in Rome.

“The fact that students and teachers exchange rolls producing some interesting social consequences,” explains journalist Romana Ceci presenting the digital literacy project promoted by the Fondazione Mondo Digitale in 17 Italian regions and 8 European countries.
From the Grandparents on the Internet model to The Knowledge Volunteers Project financed by the European Union, the FMD plans initiatives to promote active ageing and the social inclusion of over-sixties.
Luca, Vanessa, Elena and Fabrizio from the Liceo scientifico Torricelli in Rome told us about their experience with two of their students - Graziella and Anna – both of whom are enthusiastic about feeling more integrated in a rapidly evolving world thanks to new technology.
Alfonso Molina, Professor of Technology Strategy at the University of Edinburgh and Scientific Director of the Fondazione Mondo Digitale explained “our objective is to overcome the digital divide with innovative and personalized didactics for elders. At the same time, the exchange allows the students to acquire life competences that are fundamental for 21st century education.” Thus, the students are building their own future.
Geriatrics specialist Caterina Cattel from the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore points out “the project is particularly significant in terms of the mood of elders. The relationship that is created between grandparents and grandchildren can truly improve their quality of life.”
