Technology and participation in initial teacher education:
A workshop experience in DAD in the primary education degree course.
Mingrino, M., Lo Piccolo, A.
The social, cultural and economic changes of this century inevitably affect the world of education and training, which therefore has to renew its paths, objectives and targets.
The laboratory, intended as a new teaching space, becomes a privileged place for the educational relationship between teachers and learners, who, supported by technology, creatively achieve the set objectives.
The design of the workshop activities was carried out with the intention of encouraging the development of knowledge according to an inductive approach and using teaching methodologies centred on the active role of the student in which interaction, collaboration between subjects and reflection in action become the significant characteristics to encourage learning through experience.
