It was the first appeal. There were many others to try to keep together, in every way, the school community. So did Chiara Saraceno, on the Republic: “we Find alternative solutions to the lessons suspended due to a virus. By study groups organized by the families to the free distribution of tablets and internet connection.” However, noting, “e-learning platforms, lessons, skype, and the like are certainly useful, but not accessible to all”.
Here, in the Republic this last sentence is played – now that the decision to close all schools was taken – almost as an invitation. The site of the Republic is a digital platform shared by the teachers and by their students to be there. For years. And’ Repubblica@Scuola, with its 2,500-related institutes that are mushrooming in ten thousand teachers and almost two hundred thousand students enrolled. It is a unique experience, not only in Italy, which produces over one hundred thousand contributions of students each year.

And then, just now, we put at your disposal. The invitation to schools is to use it in a novel way, but easy: - the emergency, among other things, stimulates the imagination. Each institute has its own homepage, in which all the students are already writing (from school - until now - from home and even from smartphones). If their teachers consider it useful, will suggest a topic which the students will be asked to answer in their personal pages and all the contributions will then be visible on the homepage of the "comics online school". In essence: the professors, if you give a theme, a problem for your children, everyone can do it where it is and the works will be visible all together in an ideal “bundle” of tasks in class digital.
With closed schools, the Republic@School becomes a virtual class
it is a suggestion, but also an opportunity to maintain the community in the schools. Not only. There is a second possibility, quite rare, that we would like to offer. Now re - one after the other, but in a page where as you will be able to see the video of the 14 lessons, the author made six years ago, directly in the classroom, with the great protagonists of culture, entertainment, sport. And ask students to comment on these lessons: Camilleri (mysteries of Pirandello), Baricco (to know the secret of the stories to understand the world around), Fifth (Beethoven, the Eroica and Napoleon), Toni Servillo (the magic of the actor), Zerocalcare (the comic as a language – talk about irony), Rumiz (give air to the memory to merge) , Melania Mazzucco (the paintings and the social meaning of art), Odifreddi (music and mathematics – play with the numbers), Carofiglio (the truth revealed with the fiction), Manuel Agnelli (the music, to tell the truth), Bebe Vio (life and sport), Attilio Bolzoni (to tell the mafia).
Lessons for students at home
It begins with Andrea Camilleri, to make also a tribute to the great writer who disappeared months ago. It was a thrill to see him on the throne of a roman high school, although it is difficult to begin the lesson for the too many boys who wanted to talk to him. Until the passage: “I can Feel your attention, even if I can't see you”. Moved all.
