Pilot course based on ICT for the teaching of the Italian language to unaccompanied minors, in particular Afghan and Romanian children hosted by Caritas (Centro Pronto Intervento Minori - CPIM)
The Doppio Codice project was launched in 2006 to provide unaccompanied minors with assistance in the integration process, including those requesting political asylum in Italy.
The Tam Tam Village association that provides the Caritas charity organization with a cultural mediation service contacted FMD, requesting the expansion of Italian language teaching capability for a group of unaccompanied minors of various nationalities, Afghan and Romanian, in particular.
FMD, in collaboration with the City of Rome’s Department of Educational and Scholastic Policies, elected to use the digital infrastructure available at the Città Educativa for the pilot course required.
FMD planned the content and the materials for the 14-week course, including the assessment criteria to be adopted at the start of the course, midway, and at the end. The resources adopted include the Vocabolario Multilingue Multimediale produced by students from different schools and nationalities, a project that won the international Global Junior Challenge.
The synergic relationships and flows of value between organizations, people, and the resources created by the Double Code project are illustrated below.
