Atti del convegno "Il corpo e la rete. Strumenti di apprendimento interculturale"
Volume 8 (2013)
Today digital tools and social networks have created a web of world-wide connections, that might be one of such tools. But their use is ambivalent. On one hand they generate the feeling that physical interaction may no longer be necessary in order to get to know another reality and that distance may be an irrelevant or marginal factor when approaching another culture. On the other hand they make it more difficult to detach oneself from one’s own environment and to benefit from a full immersion in another country. This ambivalence rises many questions.
How are these tools used, especially by young people? How do they create a texture of continuous multiple communication? How do they favour or impede physical interaction between people from different cultures, and intercultural learning? How do they integrate or diverge digital learning and real life experiences?
The Intercultura Foundation has organized an international conference in Florence, from February 28 to March 2, 2013, to discuss these issues.
The proceedings are published in this book.
