Learning for all (L4All) is a three-years FIRB (Fondi di Investimento per la Ricerca di Base) project, financed by the Italian Ministry of Education, the University and Research (MIUR).
L4All investigates the impact of the use of ICT in schools. Nearly 1,000 teachers (from pre-school to high-school), from 20 different regions, are involved in the empirical investigations, based on interviews and quantitative data. The Project aims at investigating how a knowledgeable use of technology can contribute to raising the quality of teaching, in particular for students with special needs. The Outcome of the project will be an online, public, Repository where a large number of good ICT-based experiences will be collected.
