17/4/2013 - Italy - Young people, the internet and changes brought about by the new media

(ANS – Mestre) – On Saturday 20 April the Salesian University Institute, Venice (IUSVE), will hold its annual seminar on how the new technology is transforming people’s daily lives, and the need there is for a proper education in its use.

The seminar is entitled ”Never without the internet? Aspects and prospects of digital literacy”. It is intended for students and teachers of IUSVE, but also for all who, for any reason, are interested in the topic – teachers, educators, parents and people working in the media.

The morning will concentrate on the contributions of experts in communication and other sectors affected by the new media. The chairperson will be the journalist Maria Pia Zorzi. Speakers will include Leslie Haddon, researcher of “EU Kids Online”, a project financed  by the European Union; Giovanna Mascheroni, expert on the impact of the new media on children and young people; Luigi Guerra who will speak about  education for the new technology and education through the new technology; and Mirko Pallera, leading Italian expert  on non-conventional marketing.

The Assistant Secretary for Public Education, Marco Rossi Doria will reply to the arguments of primary school teacher Franco Lorenzoni, author of an appeal to “free schools from the computer”.

The afternoon will be given to a deeper study of various lines of research. There will be 13 workshops conducted by teachers of IUSVE. These will deal with cinema, training of teachers, affectivity and sexuality in adolescents in the internet age, the influence of the new media on politics, advertising, the role of parents, even the effect  of the new media on eating disorders. There will also be case studies and testimonies, as well as time for debate.
