The demand for evolved educational services has undergone a profound transformation in recent years. The focus has shifted from the simple electronic use of content to disseminating and sharing knowledge by more engaging methods for young people based on web 2.0 models. The solutions already integrated in the Telecom Italia e-learning platform and the prototypes of the ones developed by analysing the requirements of the educational world, meet the demand for evolved services based on collaboration, communication and the involvement of end users.

EducaTI is a CSV digital education project developed for students, teaching bodies and families, a multi-annual synergistic programme which plans the implementation of a series of complementary initiatives carried out in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, Universities and Research (MIUR) and with some institutional partners of excellence.

The main ones are listed below:

  • Programme the future : introduces programming (coding) into Italian primary schools. Telecom Italia is the main partner in the project developed jointly with the national inter-university consortium for information technology CINI (Consorzio Interuniversitario Nazionale per l’Informatica);
  • A Social Life :a road show, aimed at raising awareness among young people on the topic of online security and the dangers connected with being uninformed about the use of the internet and Social Networks. The project was organized by the External Relations Office and the ceremony by the Secretary’s Office of the State Police in collaboration with MIUR.
  • You Teach (in italian): an annual national creative competition for upper secondary schools that stimulates the skills of young people, encouraging them to create digital products that emphasize the positive aspects of the Internet;
  • TIM WebRulez (in italian): is a digital education campaign in collaboration with the National Police to disseminate the responsible use of the Internet among teenagers.

Moreover, Telecom Italia is a member of the advisory board of SIC - Italian Safer Internet Centre - in the context of MUIR’s Connected Generations project and it is part of the “ICT Coalition for Children Online” Association, a platform of around 25 European ICT companies (including some telcos and players such as Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) which help young European Internet users to address the risks and challenges of the web.
