Piccole Scuole: distance learning to maintain schools in remote villages

The Piccole Scuole Movement is a network of small schools created by INDIRE, the Italian National Institute for Documentation, Innovation and Educational Research. The movement aims at offering equal education opportunities in remote villages, in particular in mountain areas and islands. ICT technologies are used to connect small schools so that they can share classes for certain subjects but also to make students work on common projects. The overall objective is to support the survival of villages’ schools and fight depopulation.

Piccole Scuole helps to address the issues faced by multi-ages classes in small schools by using distance learning to maintain quality education in mountain villages. In the same way that sharing resources and staff in the tourism or health care sector can help to maintain offer in mountain areas, sharing teaching slots can be a solution to preserve small schools and villages’ population.

It also encourages interactions between teachers and researchers to find solutions to a problem that is not really being addressed so far. See how researchers can support teachers in mountain areas in our good practice.
