About the book || New media didactics and other tales depicts and analyses the latest events occurred in the Italian education system on its way towards digitization. The aim of the book is, therefore, think upon how new media changed the aspects of Italian schools and reflect on the urgent need for a possible way-out. The author’s proposal does not intend to demonize the technique. Rather it wants to lead to a real and deep metamorphosis of the education system by revealing the potential that the encounter between art, education and new media holds for new ways of thinking and acting. The text, therefore, highlights some illuminating realities which have found an ideal territory in art, where theory and practice aimed at the encounter between pedagogy and new media can be successfully linked. The ultimate aim of the model pointed out by the author is, then, to educate citizens, an heterogeneous collective finding their way in an immersive, homologated and conforming reality, and to put together a framework for future generations.
