ABF works every day to foster learning settings that promote interaction, communication and relationships, also with the support of new technologies so that each child may discover or enhance their talents. We want to increase the educational curriculum and incorporate new elements, while maintaining the conditions that make the new educational technologies tools for supporting, integrating and enriching relationship-building, knowledge and learning processes.
Pilot projects are currently underway at:
- E. De Amicis Pre-School and Elementary School in Muccia (built by ABF following on from the earthquake that hit Central Italy in 2016)
- G. Leopardi Middle School in Sarnano (built by ABF following on from the earthquake that hit Central Italy in 2016)
- Franco Corelli Music Academy in Camerino (built by ABF following on from the earthquake that hit Central Italy in 2016)
- Sandro Bocelli ZeroSei Center School in Lajatico
And at the Hospital Schools of the Italian Pediatric Hospitals Association (AOPI) network.
ART & MUSIC Lab
It was developed from the awareness that the natural tendency of children to share images, thoughts and emotions though communicative means based on complex rhythmic and melodic forms must be supported through environments that are rich and compelling in terms of opportunities for exploration, building and sharing.
Following on from and in parallel with the implementation of the Art & Music Labs projects – centered around the expressive languages of art and music as resources for fostering, supporting and promoting the talent of every child – ABF is promoting the use of new educational technologies in its school network: a precious tool for communication and curricular integration, with the aim of improving quality and advancing educational innovation. The project – which represents a significant innovation in terms of promoting new technologies for educational innovation – aims to create and maintain the conditions that make the devices real tools that support, supplement and enrich learning processes. The digital library – ABF TeachBus – made available to every school has all the devices required for the number of students attending the school.
