“DiTES (DIgital Technologies, Education and Society)” is a public Research Centre located in Italy. Its aim is to provide a research and experimentation space within the “Link Campus University” in Rome, a space dedicated to themes related to education, lifelong learning and guidance as well as the use of new technologies in different learning contexts. All our activities will be implemented for and with schools and all the public and private actors needed, institutional and collective, and interested in the centrality of education in all its declinations: education, training, labour, accompaniment, edutainment, active citizenship. The inspiring principles on which are based the activities of the Research Centre include:
– an added value to networking considered as a continuous attention towards the creation of bridges among different worlds as for e.g. the world of education, the world of work, local and territorial contexts as elements of change and cultural innovation;
– a people-centred approach in all processes of digitalisation, with the final goal to identify and favour in a more concrete way social innovation;
– a multidisciplinary approach, with the aim to create a connection, in a logic of chain, form research to education, involving the whole society and the world of work.
