Bridging skills and teaching practices: a study on learning effectiveness in ex-tracurricular activities

The article aims to investigate the undermined scenario in which children, during this intrapan-demic period, had to rely on their own strength, supporting themselves in the processes of acquir-ing cognitive and transversal skills, within a new, private and mutilated social dimension. Through the analysis of extra-curricular activities within the National Operational Program (NOP FSE) planning, this article presents the results of a research conducted on a sample of 223 primary and secondary school children and 18 teachers; its aim is to identify the dynamics of learning behav-iours in relation to non cognitive skills and the repercussions in terms of educational success.
