About

ITEMS is a Leonardo da Vinci Program multilateral partnership. It is meant to spread knowledge and expertise in the field of art education especially with regards to the cooperation between secondary schools and museum institutions. A special attention is given to the potential of new technologies in school and museum education.

 

SUMMARY OF THE PLANNED PARTNERSHIP

This partnership is aimed at developing the analysis, research and exchange on good practices with regard to museums as educational resources in the very context of school training and with particular attention to the secondary school level.
Starting from the results of previous researches carried on in several European countries, the project intends to consider the peculiar aspects of museums like learning spaces (which means different from the traditional classroom) where students can learn in an active way, by connecting the two processes of absorbing and acquiring knowledge.
We will then carefully examine the relationship between school and museum and discuss about the possibility of adopting the learning (formal and informal) experiences normally made in museums, into the formal context of school learning. The possible connection of these approaches to the national curricula will be also examined.
