STEAM educational paths to fight the educational poverty and reduce the disaster risk: an experimental activity in a primary school


This contribution aims to illustrate the contents of a learning module titled “The Italian language in the changing school”, as part of a PON project in a primary school, which involved disciplines such as Italian and Geography and which had as its main objective the reduction of scholastic failure in situations of educational poverty. An interdisciplinary STEAM (the acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) path was tested to complete the module, also referring to the concept of resilience. The initial hypothesis envisages that intercultural and multidisciplinary STEAM-type learning also contributes to enhance the educational resilience and anti-frailty of pupils, especially those in educational poverty.
